The Black Church - Brasov - Romania - August 2013
Merry Christmas to everyone!
Brasov's most important landmark, the Black Church, the largest Gothic church between Vienna and Istanbul, towers over Piata Sfatului and the old town. Originally dedicated to Virgin Marry the church was Roman-Catholic for more than a century and a half and later with the reformation sweeping across Europe it became a Lutheran one. Service is still held today for the small German community from Brasov on Sundays.

Bonjour, cher ami Ovidiu,
Encore une image qui fait plaisir à voir et à découvrir.
L'emplacement choisi pour mettre en valeur la ville est parfait.
L'ensemble est magnifiquement photographié.
Très bonne fêtes de fin d'année.

Good high viewpoint above the roofs of this old town. That classic chuch looks very old, I wonder which century it is from. Nice green forest background.

dopo la bella foto di Budapest, un'altra bella ripresa perfetta nella composizione con le diagonali delle case e della chiesa che si incrociano e creano un disegno assai piacevole.
Molto ben fatta la ripresa anchge dal puinto di vista tecnico con in evidenza i bei colori della montagna e del cielo .
Molto bello il soggetto.
Ciao e buona domenica

A good overview of this old city. Excellent perspective of the roofs of the city with the beautiful stoned church standing back to the greenery and dominating the nearby houses. Lovely shot.

a good contrast between the nice architecture of the church, the rooftops of the village, the green forest, and the blue sky, in a composition very rich graphically.
A beautiful play of light and shades on the elements.
Best regards, and Merry Christmas!!

Excellent view over the rooftops towards the dark forested hillslope.
Nice alternation of red roofs and grey walls.
Merry Christmas and a very enjoyable end of the year,

A beautiful church, and as you say it really does tower above the surrounding village. I love the point of view you chose for this, by including the rooftops of the surrounding town, it makes me think of a scene from a Charles Dickens novel! You also presented it beautifully against the lush forest and the sliver of blue sky adds wonderful color.
Thanks as always

the Black Church is a very attractive and interesting building and the context in which it stands is equally fascinating. A rich assortment of perspectives makes the foreground very vibrant, the architectural details and textures have been rendered in a fine way. The light has warmed the antique town delightfully and the luscious greenery in the background sets it off excellently. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a wonderful Christmas holiday and enjoy it heartily!

A picturesque old town shaded by the green backdrop with the church stands to attract as strong focal point, but interestingly the colours of the dwelling are almost identical- in earthy brownish tone. You managed the light brilliantly here, colours look natural and blue sky is a perfect colour contrast. Indeed a plezsant and charming sight well taken, I love the depth too. A fine effort no doubt, Congrats

Romania is a country that has always intrigued me, I'm thinking there's beautiful/rustic architecture to be photographed.
smart looking angle, smart composition all together.
the light helps too, very nice indeed.
I'd like to see this in person.

Interesting position, view of Brasov's church across the multiple red tile roof tops, and very massive Gothic design.
