The construction of present Gothic cathedral was begun in 1320. By 1346 the presbytery was completed and the entire church was consecrated in 1364. Cathedral's location on the edge of the Wawel Hill and partial use of earlier-existing walls resulted in few irregularities of the ground plan. Through the almost 700 years of its existing the cathedral was surrounded by chapels, founded by members of the ruling dynasties, bishops and some magnate families. In the 17th century the cathedral was fenced with a wall with three gates. The top of the clocktower was built in th 18th century and the vaults of the ambulatory was risen in that times. Remodelling continued into the 19th and 20th century.
On the photo you can see three towers of Krakow's cathedral which is hidden in the morning fog

Hi, Pawel -
Very creative composition, producing a great emotional effect. The fog and the mere silhouettes of the towers seem to come from another world. Great use of the diffuse light and the color is excellent. Well done!

it's been some time that i haven't visited your gallery.
I saw this picture and have to confess, perfect work.
I like the way you took it, that you didn't make PP on it - too much saturation or higher contrast.
Foggy and mysterious, with nice pastel colours and soft atmosphere, this is also how i remember Krakow from my visit.

this is one of the most beautiful photos I have seen here in a while. THe three towers hidden by the fog seem to be out of some fantasy novel.
Really well done.
