The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Wrocław, located in the Ostrów Tumski district, is a Gothic church with Neo-Gothic additions. The current standing cathedral is the fourth church built on the site.
The cathedral is a three-nave Gothic oriented basilica surrounded by Gothic and Baroque Chapels.
In the photo you can see the Chapel of St. Elizabeth. It was built 1682-1700 as the mausoleum of Bishop Frederick of Hesse-Darmstadt. The chapel was dedicated to St. Elizabeth of Hungary, whose cult had been popular in the city since the Middle Ages.

Jesienne swiatlo fantastycznie wydobywa ciepłe kolory tej architektury. Bardzo dobry pionowy kadr. Świetna realizacja.

A well composed picture with people giving scale to the cathedral.
The colour of the tree on the left is a beautiful colour.

Très bon cadrage de cette fameuse cathédrale de Wroclaw. La légère brume et les couleurs d'automne contribuent à la beauté de l'image.

molto bella questa immagine autunnale della cattedrale, con le due persone in abiti colorati che colpiscono l'attenzione.

This is a very good combination of street shot and architectural shot. It's a very well cropped photo that suits the tall tree and the church tower perfectly. What else may have been on the sides has been left out, so there is nothing disturbing the composition. The two persons add "human" colours to this hazy day in autumn, while the trees bring us beautiful natural colours. I would have been quite satisfied with this photo myself.

bellissimo incontro tra la bella architettura ed i colori dell'autunno.
Due soggetti nei quali sei molto bravo e che si trovano condensati un questa bella fotografia dalla composizione impeccabile e dalla scena resa ancor più suggestiva per la presenza della foschia.
Un eccellente colore rende la scena ancor più bella e colpisce l'osservatore fin dall'apparrire della miniatura.
Complimenti. Una ottima foto.
Ciao e buona serata

This is a very nice view of the cathedral, well framed at the right side by the branches of the big tree while the other tree against the wall doesn't obstruct the view at all but adds the golden brown fall colours on this picture.
Best regards, Paul
