The 200 year old Frederikskirke or Marble Church is more impressive than Copenhagen Cathedral. Originally designed to rival St. Peter's in Rome, the church took over 100 years to build (due to budget restrictions) and features one of the largest copper domes in the world. Around the exterior are 16 statues of a range of religious leaders from Moses to Luther, and below them are sculptures of eminent Danish ministers and bishops. If you’re feeling fit, you can climb the 273 steps to the outdoor balcony and gaze at the beautiful view.

Nice shot! The water from the fountains has framed the dome nicely without obscuring it too much.
Notes about where and what the building is would be helpful.

What a great and refreshingly different way of shooting this old, beautiful church.

Very effective, yet unusal, framing of your subject Jeton. The subject is well exposed with good colour. I would have liked to see the entire top of the church dome. Overall, very nice....
