Church St. Michael the Archangel in Gniezno.
Gniezno is a city in central-western Poland, some 50 km east of Poznań, inhabited by about 70,000 people. One of the Piasts' chief cities, it was mentioned by 10th century A.D. sources as the capital of Piast Poland (in Dagome Iudex) however the first capital of Piast realm was most likely Giecz built around 840s A.D.

The Green Tower at thumb nail resembles a rocket about to be launched! as a result of such a stunning contrast afforded by the deep foliage combined by the earthy-tones onthe stonework. This is superb capture, sharp in focus in excellent clarity and smartly cropped. A shot to be proud off, Well done, Congrats

You have found a very strong subject with excellent positioning of the majestic church tower in great light. I love the fact that the church has such fantastic color contrasting very well against the green trees in the background. Brilliant!

This well-proportioned redbrick church looks great against the lush green vegetation around it. A very good presentation of this attractive architectural object of Gniezno.
