This is a nicely composed shot of the church and square. The off center placement of the church works well with the cross providing a good focal point. The muted lighting allowed for good color and detail.

ladne, zadbane stare budowle. Podoba mi sie architektura kosciola. Co prawda niebo miales blade ale rekompensuja to fajnie nasycone kolory.

A cute town scene with two eye-catching buildings - the old church and the museum building creating lots of beauty complementing each other really well as strong focal of interests which is nicely juxtapositioned. Beautifully good light and tones too, this is indeed a rewarding effort and your seamless work is well rewarded. Very well done capture, Congrats.
