This is a picture presenting Dubrovnik´s Cathedral and more precisely it´s Dome and one of statues of the Saints.
some infos about The Cathedral found on wikipedia.org:
The Assumption Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Dubrovnik, Croatia. It is the seat of the Diocese of Dubrovnik.The cathedral was built on the site of several former cathedrals, including 6th, 10th and 11th century buildings, and their 12th century successor in the Romanesque style, which was largely destroyed in the earthquake of 1667.The Senate of Dubrovnik appealed to the architect Andrea Bufalini who sent a model for the new church. Several other Italian architects including Francesco Cortese (present from 1669 until his death in 1670), Paolo Andreotti (present 1671-1674), Pier Antonio Bazzi (present 1677-78), and Tommaso Maria Napoli of Palermo (present 1689 - 1700), all working with local and imported stonemasons,completed the Cathedral over the next three decades.The cathedral was damaged by at least one shell during the Siege of Dubrovnik.The damage has since been repaired.

Super praca.

I like your pov and your use of light and shadow to highlight this beautiful cathedral. Good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Excellent chosen POV Krzysztof, and so well have you managed the light and colors here. Very sharp and clear not giving way to the superb clarity. That Saint is one scary looking man; I wouldn't want to mess with him, good choice to have him as the guardian. Beautiful Job Krzysztof!!

Bonsoir, cher Krzysztof,
Lever les yeux et profiter du travail des architectes, des sculpteurs, des bâtisseurs.
Ici, la mise en image exprime bien la beauté d'ensemble.
Un cadrage utilisant des lignes, qui se coupent harmonieusement.

What a splendid close-up of the dome. A well chosen upwards POV with very good details. Perfect exposure that get both the illuminated and the shadow areas well presented. Very nice, like it a lot:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling

This very effective POV from below, the dome is beautiful and contrasts very well with the beautiful sky, I also really like the game of lines and curves, excellent light and its management, also very clear details in shadow areas...nice job..
have a lovely day...

Effective tight framing, a good upward pov, and superb shadow detail here. I like the warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky & the yellow red dome. I also like the opposing diagonals of the balustrade at left & the roof at right. Tfs!

this is an interesting image, I like the composition with the dome under the sunrays, the contrast between the light and shadow areas is well shown, nice job,
Have a good weekend,

Divided between shaded area on picture and lightened dome, made a nice combination, Krzysztof.
The statue of the angel, contrast to the edifice - but it's outlines a bit obsecured. Nevertheless, the result is magnificent from chosen POV, looking upwards, and light management.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Cutting in line, with a depth resolution as great vision, has created a very beautiful picture.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Krysztof, A great angle and excellent clarity as seen by the clarity of the cross at the top. Good to have the stone statue in the foreground, a good technique to add to the composition. TFS. Murray

Świetnie wypatrzony i zaprezentowany detal tej fantastycznej budowli. Fajnie bawisz się liniami oraz światłem. Interesująca praca. Zasługuje na uwagę.
mauro61 (52631) 2012-07-20 14:17
il POV dal basso esalta sempre le immagini specialmente quelle architettoniche.
Buono il connubio che hai creato tra la statua e la cupola,

Having had a brief look through your gallery I am impressed by your architectural type shots. This one caught my eye because it is well composed and has a great POV. the graphic elements of intersecting triangles and the circles of the dome work well together. The statue given significance by the title of the shot too.
abmdsudi (44966) 2012-11-07 7:44
This is a very fine combination of excellent exposure and well thought-out composition from the low viewpoint. The statue acts as an effective anchor and leads constantly upwards to the focal and blends as a whole. The subtle light, colors and deep polarised blue sky make this so appealing shot. Flawless capture, well done.

I love the menacing expression on this statue, and how your POV shows his just about to draw the sword, as if to protect the building he stands in front of. And what a dome! Love the vertical crossing of the balustrade against the soft circular shape of the dome, and the lovely interplay of light and shadow.
All the best

Un cadrage recherche du dôme de l'église en incluant la statue, contraste ombre et de lumière et des couleurs
jcpix (13724) 2013-05-21 20:51
After browsing through your gallery I came back to your home page to see this one featured, and was instantly taken in! So many pictures of domes are shown with just that, the dome...and as beautiful and impressive as they are, there still is a small piece lacking in the appeal because they're so common throughout the world. This however, features a foreground element that takes it up a notch and demands much more attention, without losing any of the domes features or beauty. The crossing diagonal lines with the statue as a centerpiece is a strong visual with added depth. Tough light too, but well balanced to show that detail in the shadows. Compliments on a smashing result! Thanks for the fresh look. Have a great day ahead.

I watch TV news from Croatia today. The black flags etc.
But I think this country has got big tourist potential. I'd like to visit this Balkan country too.
Thanks for your interesting report.

I like the angle of this picture, makes the dome even bigger and more magestic, I like the sculpture gives more character to the picture.
I like the ligth and the blue of the sky this makes the attention in the dome.
Thank you for sharing
