Sailing ship on the frozen sea water in front of Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki.
Uspenski Cathedral is an Eastern Orthodox cathedral in Helsinki, Finland, dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos (the Virgin Mary). Designed by the Russian architect Alexey Gornostaev (1808–1862). The cathedral was built after his death in 1862–1868.
The Cathedral is set upon a hillside on the Katajanokka peninsula overlooking the city of Helsinki. On the back of the cathedral, there is a plaque commemorating Russian Emperor Alexander II, who was the sovereign of the Grand Duchy of Finland during the cathedral's construction.
Main cathedral of the Finnish Orthodox Church in the diocese of Helsinki, Uspenski Cathedral is claimed to be the largest orthodox church in Western Europe.

I visited Helsinki in summertime. So this winter view with the frozen water in the port is quite a different
view for me.
Yet this winter picture shows strong warm tones, as well on the boat, on the houses as on the Uspenski Cathedral.
Splendid light. Good choice of POV and composition.
Best regards, Paul

I think it doe's not sail anywhere now...
Beautiful sails-boat under low-angel sun-rays, golden tone prevailed.
Ice looks as gold... and in abundance.
The majestic dome in BG, has an intriguing view as well - maybe, a POV just 5m backwards(if possible) would show more of this beautiful edifice. My humble oppinion only.

Amazing tight framing of this sailboat stuck in the frozen sea water. The warm light and details are fabulous.
Thanks and kind regards.

Hello Miro. So the winter. Everything rests and is different from usual You feel the cold. The slanting sun light is reddish. Total well seen and realized.

Bon cadrage du bateau, ces couleurs et ces détails, le bâtiment est aussi intéressant dommage que le haut soit couper, peut être pas assez de recul!!!
a coté de cela l'image est très bien réaliser

I must say, you've come up with a really nice series showcasing these vintage type of ships. Doesn't appear as if this one is going to set sail any time soon though! :) Being encased in ice gives this an entirely different look and feel, making it stand out from the others. The warm glow of sunlight is fantastic, adding another quality that adds interest...kind of a "fire & ice" aspect. Well taken and presented, thanks for sharing these beauties. Have a great evening.
All the best,

Warm toned winter light is just wonderful on this. Classic buildings and beautiful old sailboat give this timeless feeling. That boat is so totally surrounded by ice, I hope it gets through the winter in decent condition.

a very interesting presentation of this impressive cathedral through the ropes of the boat caught and resting in the ice. Even though the top of the cathedral and the mast are missing from the frame, the composition is original and intriguing, depth and clarity are superb and the warm light gives the scene a very special charm. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Cold temperature and warm light, good effect and contrast, interesting view with this nice boat on ice, well framed with this building in BG.

Great shot here with nice warm colors.
Fascinating composition with great exposure, splendid light and wonderful warm colors.Well done.

I guess I had missed this one! This boat is also very nice and here you got in on the ice, with the catedral in background and with a beautiful soft light. A good shot!

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see siling ship on the frozen sea and the Orthdox church in behind. The church seems to maintain the dignity by its scale and design. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination. It is surprise that ice remains although it enters in April.
