This is the Cathedral of Vilnius. The Cathedral is located in the Old Town of the city. Today is Lithuania's main Roman Catholic Cathedral: However, during the Sovjet times it was used as a picture gallery and storage. Masses started to be held here in 1985 when it was still officially a picture gallery. In 1989 it regained status as Cathedral. A thorough renovation was carried out between 2006 and 2008.
The first cathedral in this place was built in the13th century. during the centuries the Cathedral has suffered from fires, flood, and damage from invaders etc. and has been rebuilt and remodeled many.times It got its more or less its present appearance in the in the early 19th century.

Nice composition of this very fine church, taken from a nice angle. I like the way it is lit up, and how it stands out beautifully against the blue hour sky. The lighting really highlights the architecture well and your exposure is perfect. A great night shot.

Good morning Ulf,
I am impressed with the "clean" 8 sec. exp. managed superbly.
Yellow strong light under the marble hallway, with pillars and statues marvelousely handled, and in fine contrast to the outside darkening surrounding. Also, in second place is the beautiful tower, alo under light and prominently over the big square you were standing.
Fine night shot, exquisite details, no "grains" effect.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Jag var också här förra året och har lagt ut en bild på TE. Det är alltid väldigt intressant att se hur olika personer tar totalt olika bilder från samma platser. Det säger mycket om fotograferingens oändliga möjligheter. Här har du fångat en fin atmosfär från blå timmen med ett varmt, nästan intimt ljus från katedralen och torget framför den. Bilden är mycket välexponerad trots de inte alldeles lätta ljusförhållandena.
Tack för din ws på min bild. I princip tog du ett steg längre än vad jag redan hade gjort, och det var ju ingen nackdel.

Una foto fatta con estrema cura che mette in mostra ampiamente le tue capacitā.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

nice the night view of the Catherdal of Vinilius,with the bell tower to be a separate building of it.I like the light management as the architectural style of the Cathedral.

Ett synnerligen vackert ljus över hela bilden. En fin kontrast mellan det varma fasadljuset över byggnaderna och det mörka himlen. Den öppna platsen verkar egendomligt folktom och övergiven. Ändå är det ju inte så sent på kvällen.

You shows us the Cathedral of Vilnius on a very nice way.
I like your enlightenment between the pillars.
Sharpness and colour are pleasant to look at.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

Well done for the blue hour, the sky is well exposed
But I think that it was possible to underexpose a little bit, the spotlights are too strong between the columns
I have done a WS but it was much better for you o make some test ith different exposure

Simply amazing blue hour post taken from a well selected POV to get the presentation of the main building of the church with the interesting bell-tower. Together, they built a beautiful scene. Perfectly executed work. TFS!
