I think this old Greek church really could be a part of some postcard from this beautiful cozy city.
This photo was taken during my first visit to Thessaloniki.

A very fine church which certainly must have adorned a postcard or two. I like the warm light and fine colours and the palm-tree in front of the church. From this POV the church looks quite big, but my impressions from a few visits to Thessaloniki was that the old Byzantine churches looked so very small in comparison to the new buildings surrounding them.

I like the point of view here and the tonal contrasts. The tight framing on the church works perfectly. Ideally exposed with excellent colours and clarity.

Beautiful elaborate neo-Gothic blend with romantic elements for this Thessaloniki church, especially the octagon towers, and the solid brick composition.
Thanks for sharing,

This is a good postcard shot of this fine church. The palm tree adds a nice point of interest for the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.

Sensational POV, which shows a good level to delight in the beauty of this church, perfect your game cupolas and windows on its facade, which makes the very attractive set, a penalty as near modern buildings in Athens was the same, with some beautiful churches ... the palm is a supplement that offers an ideal nature touch.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb management of both the brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I like it
Have a good weekend.

Nice postcard, I like the composition with the old Orthodox church against the modern buildings around. Interesting contrast. Wonderful architecture. And of course, a palm is very eyecatching.
I am relaxing on the lake and in the forest, but so soon the forests will be much bigger and the lake much deeper. I can't wait :))

You captured this church in a very pleasant sunlight. Good composition too with a good inclusion of the palm tree in the foreground.

The contrast between the ancient church and the modern apartment buildings is quite notable. Too bad about the ugly fence in the foreground but it was there and you made the best of it.
