This is Manastirea Dealu (Dealu Monastery), a nuns monastery situated at 6 km from Targoviste, the capital of Dambovita county. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful Romanian monasteries. It is called so because it is on a hill ("deal", in Romanian) and was built on the 15th century, during the reign of Radu the Great ('Radu cel Mare') and was repeatedly repaired during the reigns of Matei Basarab, Constantin Brancoveanu and Bibescu Voda.
Here there is the tomb of Michael the Brave (Mihai Viteazul--1558-9 August 1601), one of the most important Romanian princes, who united for the first time the three Romanian countries under a single Romanian ruler. He is regarded as one of Romania's greatest national heroes.

Lovely image. I like the strong colours. Good perspective and composition.
chrisnet (21092) 2007-01-07 14:37
This monastery is very well framed and I like much the perspective of this little path at the left, amazing sky too and a very good light and colors. Good capture indeed!
hyasar (7769) 2007-01-07 14:57
nice composition and very bright colors.
Malko40000 (1328) 2007-01-07 16:01
Very nice work. I like the tree showing beyond the roofs and the figure on the path. The red chimneys in a green roof, It gives me a sense of surrealism
nicol_g (859) 2007-01-07 17:07
Culorile suprasaturate merg bine aici. Imi place cum ai compus imaginea, bine ales unghiul. Insa prezenta maicutei m-a facut sa adaug cateva cuvinte despre foto. Pentru mine este elementul care da 'greutate' aici! Felicitari! Bine vazut :)
Toate cele bune!
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2007-01-07 17:15
This is really nice picture with a lovely sky and superb colours. The compo is good even if a bit too tight on the top of the tower. Well done.
asajernigan (21298) 2007-01-07 20:38
This is a great building with great color and detail. The lighting and sharpness are very good. The monk in the foreground adds perspective to the photo.

Buen cielo y composición en esta foto. Presenta unos colores muy vivos y una luz muy bonita.
La presencia del hombre le otorga personalidad y sentido a la foto.
Un saludo: javi
isabela_sor (47696) 2007-01-08 5:47
Super POV ales arati si detalii arhitectonice,aleea,maicuta care merge adauga viata....iar culorile de ajuns de saturate si placut contrastante cu cerul acesta...poate doar ...cred ca e putin cam mult sharp...
Felicitari pentru fotografie si pentru nota
Toate cele bune
SONYfotoyo (318) 2007-01-08 6:17
Special great colors...
Really, but because I like to make a critic when I have the reason...
Q: A Monastery must have a cross over the roof, why did you cut it? 10 steps back and I’m sure that you'll see the cross...
teutza (10590) 2007-01-08 7:37
ai ales o poza xcelenta pt postare!!lumina, culorile si POV_ul sunt asa cum trebuie!

pe scurt, vor sa zica toti ca e o compozitie frumoasa :-)
Are ceva din frumusetea unei picturi naive.

a very nice pic and comp ! due to the (too) strong colours it ressembles a painting, but its nice
pat0500 (21561) 2007-01-09 15:07
Very nice shot here, good point of view and very pretty coulours.
Beautiful blue sky and good sharpness, beautiful architecture.
narpad (1050) 2007-01-09 17:59
This is truly a suberb image! I like the bold contrasting colors of the roof and the cloud pattern and the pattern in the path. The person dressed in solid black adds mystery to this image. TFS.
paura (47166) 2007-01-11 8:03
Excellent composition here. Very nice pov and colors. Interesting the architecture details.
cmoraru (557) 2007-01-15 22:06
Si eu cred ca e suprasaturata putin, dar n-are importanta: fotografia este excelenta! Altfel... nu stiu ce as mai putea adauga, decat TFS!
rafid76 (0) 2007-01-18 4:38
great cross process effect. the teal roof looks fantastic against the sky. the person in the robe on the left really adds mystery to this image. well done
ElAprendiz (30) 2007-01-25 10:46
Hello. I like much the frame, composition and resistance of colors of this landscape. There is no doubt that you made an excellent work. Congratulations, John
otistikdj (330) 2007-01-27 3:46
beautiful composition, vivid colors
I loved the lady in the dark suit and the pathway she is walking
lilimih33 (9918) 2007-01-27 10:26
Foarte puternice culorile in compozitia ta! Bun contrastul si punctul de vedere!

e ceva in manastirile noastre,nu crezi?
e linistea pe care toti o cautam.
buzdovan (294) 2007-02-21 8:10
Mmmm truly gorgeous.
Like from Umberto Eco novel.
danos (87475) 2007-03-09 3:30
very nice composition with a great perspective.Excellent the colours even if I think, is a little bit saturated.Beautiful blue sky and good sharpness and architecture.
coco (30439) 2007-03-18 19:25
Hi again, Andreaa.
Simple but good composition. Exposure and colours are good, and I like the presence of that nunk.
pablominto (53744) 2007-03-23 2:11
The monastery is captured with fine details in the architecture!
I like the point of view, and the good lead-in...
A well composed image with vivid colours!
gunbud (34066) 2007-03-28 20:44
Beautiful colors and fantastic details to this beautiful old monastery full of such grand history. The roof is a most pleasant element to this wonderful photo.
ahmetgedikli (25482) 2007-04-03 15:20
Great architecture! Excellent colours, lighting and beautiful cloudly sky. Nice work!

great architecture and a lovely capture! Never knew that Romania is such a beautiful place before joining trekearth.
TopGeo (38204) 2007-04-23 16:39
Very interesting photo the colours are vivid
and make a good contrast. I liked the note, informative enough.Thangs Georgios
brevbrev14 (140) 2007-06-25 3:34
Hi ANdrea, the first time i can see green roofs!
really interesting detail of architecture!
i like this composition with the man walking..
Jonas_Schmitt (3074) 2007-09-06 11:45
very nice picture with a great point of view.The sky looks a bit unrealistic,but anyway a fine composition!
dr_elis (49) 2007-10-05 2:03
Very nice, especially with the monk in front of the building! The colors are however a bit "over the top" and unrealistic.
ekinokswest (2994) 2007-10-28 8:21
I like the different colors of this building.the blue attic and cream, light colors and green makes a pleasant view. good scenery
marietom (34607) 2007-11-02 10:31
Un bel endroit, de belles couleurs, une bonne compo, bref, une photo réussie.
gmg (4202) 2008-03-10 16:08
Hi Andreea !
I like the colors here, a bit overcharged. And a great compositiob, with the path leading to the heart of the imagine and the man (a priest?) on it.
Very good shot
livinitout (942) 2008-03-10 17:16
Hi Andrea. I haven't seen any new posts on your site recently. I lack the time as well. I thike this shot though. Good colours and placement. The sky looks great. Nice capture
ncosmin (1191) 2008-03-25 9:46
Interesant acest contrast dintre coloritul viu si foarte variat al peisajului si austeritatea vietii monahale reprezentata aici prin maicuta care merge pe carare. Aparent monotona si rutinata, viata monahului este plina de bucurii, lucru greu de inteles pentru cei ce traiesc in lume.
Pacat ca n-ai prins si crucea de pe clopotnita, probabil n-ai avut timpul necesar ca sa incadrezi.
mauro61 (52623) 2008-05-21 1:06
ciao Andreea,bellissimi colori e un cielo stupendo.mi piace molto.complimenti
jusninasirun (17160) 2008-07-03 9:36
Hello Andreea. This is such a well composed architecture against the beautiful sky. Perfect framing in the right perspective. Well done and thanks for sharing. Jusni
jafadabret (56501) 2008-09-27 5:20
Andreea, j'aime cette atmosphère sereine de ce monastère soulignée par une seule présence humaine dans l'allée qui mène à la grande porte. Les couleurs sont très belles et le ciel sublime.
testmaniac (13508) 2008-10-10 21:03
Hi Andreea,may be more saturated photo but the composition is very good. Nice place!
jaywalker (16101) 2008-11-21 15:44
Hi Andreea, A very well crafted photo, the tower is wonderfully positioned to the left side & your POV down the path is excellent, I love the light & the brilliantly bright colours, nice detail, a great cloudy sky & the silhouette of the person walking away finishes the picture magnificently, kind regards Wilson.
foozi (7101) 2009-10-21 6:06
excellent perspective shown. I like the effect of the sky and the roof colours.
The texture is so pretty and the emergence of the leafless tree is very exciting.
fadingstar78 (420) 2009-11-21 11:02
Lovely colours, but maybe the picture was sharpened a bit too much for my taste.
Ricx (13495) 2010-03-02 2:41
Hi Andrea, Just stunning.. Wonderful sharp colours and a great POV.. Our forefathers certainly built wonderful places of worship.. They provide wonderful opportunities for TE members TFS Ricx
