Asta e proaspata, de ieri. Azi deja e cald si bine.
Frumoasa imaginea cu singura cladire normala din zona centrala (bine, mai e primaria, curtea de apel...cinema si zara).
Sa ai o saptamana frumoasa!

the nice architecture of this church, under a snowfall, offers us an image with a strong winter atmosphere and a good perspective.
It's a simple composition, very pleasant at sight, with a subtle light in spite of the bad weather.

Salut Ovidiu, foarte faina aceasta imagine de iarna a unei arhitecturi medievale muntenesti. Imi place ca ai inlaturat orice element ce tine de epoca moderna.
Multumim si toate cele bune!
