The Berliner Dome also known as the Berlin Cathedral, is one of the most iconic structures to be found in the city. This Neo-Baroque building was built in 1905, has been restored after been large destroyed during World War II. The impressive dome is a key feature of the Cathedral with a dome gallery. Inside this striking building is a museum detailing the history of the Cathedral and its design. The Hohenzollern Crypt also draws the attention with its 94 entombments, some dating back to the 16th century.
Berlin's Fernsehturm (TV Tower) is 368 meters high and is the tallest building in Berlin. Construction for the GDR transmitter started in the 1950s and the tower erected between 1965-69 was intended as the tallest in Europe, second only to Moscow's TV Tower. The lift reaches an altitude of 200 meters in 40 seconds; the observation deck is at a height of 203 meters and the Telecafe at 207 meters. The Telecafe designed with an outer ring of revolving tables serves meals while revolving once around its axis every 30 minutes.

Beautiful view, and one totally new to me, which I guess is hard to do with such iconic structures. Everything is placed so perfectly well in your frame, and the two people walking in the lower part of the frame give excellent scale to the size of these buildings. Beautiful light, and a really wonderful point of view. Thanks for sharing.
All the best

Hello Zbigniew - an impressive and eclectic arrangement of architecture in this attractive and well composed shot. Perfect in the vertical the scale of the buildings is heightened as they dwarf the couple walking in the sunlight. Warm regards Rosemary

this is simply well seen, well composed and well done - and would have been much less lively without the couple in the foreground.

this is a very good architecture Image. The lines are straight and the buildings make a natural Frame for the TV Tower, which btw is called "Alex" in Berlin.

You have found a very good point of view to show several Berlin's architectural monuments in one composition. Well reproduced atmosphere of this beautiful city and its architectural concept, nice details, vivid colors and perfect quality of the picture!

this is a superb composition with very fine use of perspectives, effective framing and wonderful balance. I love how you've created this delightful effect without relying on any sense of symmetry but the tiny people at the centre of the lowest part of the frame play a significant role in this effect too. The assortment of different architectural styles is fascinating and the excellent definition you've achieved enhances the interest and charm of your point of view. The colours look natural and lovely, the clear blue sky brings in fine contrast that sets off the intricacy of the architectures. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

you have a good photographic eye, we can notice it in your composition, where you have mixed cleverly the various architectural styles of Berlin, specially the dome of the Cathedral and the slender TV Tower.
This mixture between new and old is very pleasant at sight, and creates a beautiful ensemble.
A good work.

I heard that Berlin is a HUGE HUGE city, one that travelers often make the mistake of not being AWARE of how big it is before they arrive - therefore they're often overwhelmed.
and that TV Tower certainly is interesting and unique and kind of ugly all at the same time.
what are the views like from up there? is it worth the trip UP?
