The photo is of Fruering Church, a small rural church in Mid-Jutland.
Of the original church, from the middle of the 12th century, only the long sides of the Romanesque nave and remnants of the triumphal arch are left.
Today it stands as a late Romanesque church after a renovation in the 13th century. The nave is then extended to the west, and the church gets its major choir and apse, this will later be torn down. The east side of the chancel is built of limestone from the old choir, while the rest of the choir is set in large bricks.
The tower to the west is added in the latter half of the 15th century.

this is a very well composed impression of a characteristic church where the flag also plays an important role. The light is very nicely illuminating the scene.
Concerning the size of this image: you are allowed to increase it to 800 pixel!

Hello Allan ,
As you say , this divine light provides a perfect moment to catch this interesting white church against the stormy dark sky . Fine inclusion of the danish flag , but I woder if it would have not better if the building had been off centered . The picture could be a little bigger , too .
