Photographer's Note

The ambitious design of St. Charles Church combined architectural elements from ancient Greece - the columned entrance porch -, ancient Rome - the Trajanesque columns -, contemporary Rome - the Baroque dome -, and contemporary Vienna - the Baroque towers at either end.

When it was finished, the church received mixed reviews. It never received the sincerest form of flattery – imitation – and it was regarded as something of an architectural curiosity throughout Europe. Notwithstanding, especially when lit at night, the building is magical.

I didn't had my tripod, so I just installed my backpack as a base for the camera and used a release shutter cable.
