Sorry for my delay but as you can see when there is a child the luxury of time is limited.
The Church of Aghia Paraskevi at Metsovo is in the basilica style with three aisles and belongs to the style of three nature churches with an asymmetrical arrangement of the holy introit. The cells that existed until recently indicate that the church had previously been a monastery. There are no known written testimonies in relation to the initial construction of the church; however it is certain that it has been restored on four occasions, in 1511, 1759, 1874 and 1959. In recent years, it has been restored again since 1991. This restoration that is continuing to this day also incorporates the hagiography painting of the church by Vlasios Tsotsonis the hagiographer as well as the construction of various buildings in the surrounding area. The exquisite wood sculpted church objects which have been crafted with the perforated and deep relief technique contain representations from the New and the Old Testament, mythology, etc and have been dated to between 1750 and 1760.

It really matters which direction the wind blew on that specific time, becouse maybe, just maybe if you had wait few more minutes - the big cloud would had moved, and a shining daylight would be upon the beautiful red roof-tops and houses with the tower in picture.
Anyway, the tower is an attractive elemenet on the scene, you managed beautifully to show the bell, the clock and in fine contrast to the sky and mountains on far.
A fine allocation on picture space between elements.
Enjoy a nice weekend, kalispera,

C'est le genre de photos que j'aime prendre et que j'aime beaucoup chez les autres. Le léger contre jour est bien maîtrisé et les détails de la tour ressortent bien.

μπράβο που καταφέρνεις να συμμετέχεις σταθερά στο ΤΕ αν και προτεραιότητά σου τώρα είναι το μωρό σου. Στην εικόνα αυτή παρουσιάζεις μια συλλογή από αρχιτεκτονικές λεπτομέρειες και υφές, χαρακτηριστικές του Μετσόβου. Ακόμη και τα χρώματα μας μεταδίδουν με απόλυτη φυσικότητα την ατμόσφαιρα αυτού του μοναδικού χωριού. Μου αρέσει πολύ η αίσθηση δροσιάς και ηρεμίας, η ευκρίνεια τόσο του σκηνικού όσο και του ουρανού. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό αου βράδυ,
