On a warm August day, the people seem to be stolling by the two churches in a steady and colorful stream. The street is wide and well maintained, befitting an oil capital. The pair of focal points, the church spires all well placed in this well composed shot.
I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and New Year marked by health, happiness and prosperity.

A very merry Christmas to you and your family.
You have presented here the two beautiful churches with contrasting colors. I like the lively mood with many people walking . Very colorful image with sharpness and beautiful architectural details.

Two different churches here, quite different. They both add interest to the capture and the long line of people along the sidewalk adds a lot of colours too. Good POV with a pleasant composition.
Kind regards and a good continuation of the holiday

Eh eh! we are lucky, we got 2 religious edifices in one picture ;D I like how you've presented in a diagonal, these cathedral & Roman-catholic church with its special architecture, under a clean & blue sky.
It looks like, the good weather or maybe a special event made the people come out...
*Wish all the best to you & family*

интересное соседство. Думаю, в этом случае святые отцы мирно уживаются и ходят в гости. Хорошая качественная открытка, интересно.
Насчет черно-белой Праги, да, слукавил, конечно же не так устал. Когда графика преобладает, цветом можно пожертвовать. Рекомендую побывать , Я был дважды и просто разные ощущения.
С наступающим Новым годом, послезавтра снова в путь. Будем встречать Новый год в Ломбардии.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2011-12-26 8:08
Two interesting and various Christian churches, with typical architectures. I like seeing the intense life on the pavement. The quality is in any aspects, excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day.
Meilleurs Voeux de Bonne Année 2012!

A superb architectural complex which are these two beautiful churches, a perfect composition which shows in detail the many elements of this picture, the presence of people make the image more vivid and next, while giving us the proportions of buildings.
I love the beautiful color, sharpness and brightness the more remarkable it all.
I hope you will enjoy with Christmas, if we have no occasion to comment before, I want to wish you a Happy New Year to you and family.

Ciao dear Sergiy,
you have chosen the perfect POV to show us two churches in a photo. Even if the architectures are different, both are very interesting. Your amazing sharpness allows us to appreciate the details and the difference of styles. Very nice also the presence of people on the side of the street. Excellent work as always! Bravo!
Ciao, have a nice end of 2011 and a fantastic 2012!
Royaldevon (25916) 2011-12-29 1:11
Good Morning Sergiy,
This appears to be a busy street, full of people. It is unusual to see so many people and NO cars!
You have chosen a good pov with the first church sharp and strongly positioned, and there is a natural lead towards the second church, producing a fine sense of perspective.
All the best for the New Year,
jhm (134518) 2011-12-29 4:02
