Johanniskirche in the Old Town of Magdeburg. Saint Jean's church now hosts many events, but we do not know the date of construction; it was mentioned for the first time in 1170. This monument was destroyed four times between 1207 and 1945, then restored each time. Martin Luther preached here on 26the June 1524, after which Magdeburg became a Protestant town.
From the top of the 60m-high south tower, there is a fine panoramic view over Magdeburg.

cześć Piotrze, Byłam w Magdeburgu w zeszłym roku (miesiąc później niż Ty), wydaje mi się że wszystko widziałam, a okazuje się, ze tę rzeźbe przegapiłam.
Ciekawe zdjecie, dobry kadr, super kolory.

bella inquadratura e ottima composizione, questo monumento è in netto contrasto con la chiesa, un abbinamento originale e curioso e per questo molto interessante.

The distance between the sculpture and the church is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails, the colors of the sculpture and of the church. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

The strong red colour of the roof of this impressive church marks the centre of the capture. The interesting sculpture in the foreground is a fine balance. A good note, especially by Frank;)

Great pano, wonderful display of light, intense deep colours and the burst of photographic energy as the sculpture and the eye pooping church create so much desired effect. A well though out compo with great depth and fantastic results. Excellent contrast to blue sky to give the extra punch with the prominent perfectly in place. A worthy effort and Congrats.
