Torun - Church of St. James.
Located in a corner of the New City Market Square and towering over the New City, St. James’s Church is the New City’s gem. Erected in the first half of the fourteenth century, it is considered as one of the most valuable and interesting architectural achievements. It is a basilica-plan church (with the aisles lower than the nave), differing from other Toruñ’s Gothic churches also in that it uses a structure rarely employed in Poland: a free-standing aisle buttress attached to the nave by a flying buttress which transmits the thrust of the vault to the buttress. Now that the vaults of the aisles were raised in the fifteenth century, only one flying buttress can be seen: that over the roof of sacristy. The unique character of the church is also determined by a myriad of decorations, detail styles and multicolour glazed brick. In the New Market Square, the church can be entered through the Gothic gate with a pillar and the Baroque figure of St. James, the patron.

The bell tower is well placed in the frame and makes a splendid focal point in this nicely exposed night-time composition. The golden lighting brings a pleasant atmosphere to the scene.

Superb composition with this beautiful picture of this nice corner, where the two towers of the church raise its height and beauty.
Very good management of light and sharpness, nice contrast with the buildings silhouetted against the black sky.
Have a nice day.

A very strong contrast between the very black sky and the warm light over the street scene. An interesting church and note!
