Mаnаstirskа crkvа je posvećenа Vаznesenju Isusа Hristа i bio je ojаčаn jаkim odbrаmbenim zidom sа sedаm kulа, od kojih je sаčuvаnа sаmo deo. Rаvаnicа crkvа je prvi spomenik morаvske kole srpske srednjovekovne umetnosti. Svoj plаn osnovа je u obliku trikonhosа uvećаn sа devet jednostrаno kupolom u sredini i mаnji osmougаonа kupolа iznаd uglu uvаle. Postoji 62 prozoru svetlа. Crkvа je zidаnа nаizmenično kursevi od jednog kаmenа i linije tri linije cigle. Vrednа kerаmičkih ukrаsа koristi geometrijske аre, cvetni motivi, zoomorfnih i аntropomorfne oblike.
The monastery church is dedicated to the Ascension of Jesus and was fortified with the strong defensive wall with seven towers, of which only a part is preserved. The Ravanica church is the first monument of the Morava school of the Serbian medieval art. Its ground plan has the form of an enlarged trefoil with a nine-sided dome in the middle and smaller octagonal domes above the corner bays. There are 62 window lights. The church was built in alternate courses of single-line stone and three-line bricks. Valuable ceramic decoration makes use of geometrical patterns, floral motifs, zoomorphic and anthropomorphic shapes.

Great shot of this fortified monastery! The gate draws the eye into the shot nicely. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness. The vertical format emphasizes the height of the scene.
abmdsudi (44968) 2010-10-11 21:23
Thanks for the well written notes. What I like most here is the color; blue door, stone color and the green foilage. which combined harmoniously. Impressive pov in vertical format whilst the tower is strategically positioned majestically. Green backdrop add life and balance to this image. As usual clarity, sharpness and are good. Fine texture well seen, and excellent color saturation. Another good job, Congrats. TFS

jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-10-14 3:24
The old wall gives even more charm and of attraction to this architecture. The light puts forward the monastery on the darker background. The light and the colors are of very good quality. A very pleasant image. Cheer.
Have a nice day
ManuMay (36065) 2010-10-14 5:19
Good point of view to compose this image, and very good election to crop that way in vertical, enhanciing the view and building volumes...excellent compositiona nd textures, and very nice idea to include the blue door in contrasts with stone colours...
A very beautiful capture!!

jusninasirun (17162) 2010-10-15 18:55
This is such a fine tall frame capture. You have chosen a fine angle with the gate and architecture on top of each other. Well exposed details from very well metered exposure.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.
ikeharel (60521) 2010-10-16 1:52
The monastery seems to arise from behind the old wall. Well collected image, Sasha.
A good color's and contrast with the forest on mountain in bg.
Enjoy your weekend,
Angshu (56406) 2010-10-16 10:07
This is a good picture of the monastery. Nice complimentary images in the WS, but this is definitely the better choice for the main post! Like the contrast of the spire with the BG green. An informative note to boot! Well done my friend!
Juntas (7960) 2010-10-16 16:08
Hi Sasha. The blue door is a great eyecatcher. Very good details on the wall and building. Good colors and very good light. Good workshops too. Well done.
Have a nice weekend.
iainsp (2626) 2010-10-17 13:27
Nice framing of this shot - with the background trees formaing a nice element in the composition. Good sharpness to the walls and buildings. I would have been tempted to adjust my PoV to try to cut out the information board to the left of the gate - I find that a little distracting. regards and thanks, Iain
pablominto (53744) 2010-10-18 6:20
An interesting piece of religious architecture, safely hidden behind the stone wall!
Eye-catching design with well worked out details, the composition is intriguing and makes the viewer curious to see it all...
jafadabret (56501) 2010-10-21 9:26
C'est une photo très agréable avec une architecture d'une grande beauté bien mise en valeur par la lumière et la composition.
baddori (20021) 2010-10-23 3:43
Grande Serbia..che difende ancora la sua identità.
Terra di confine ha difeso la cultura mittel europea dell'est.....ed è stata mal ripagata.
Come la mia Sardegna difesa dal mare e dall'isolamento ed adesso preda del turismo.
La foto è bella orgogliosa superba ....essenziale .
Ricx (13495) 2010-10-28 4:00
Hi Sasha, I realy like the vertical image of this church- with the old ruins in the fg and the "newer" building giving depth- nice and sharp- with a good touch of autumn coming thru- Have a great day. Rich
Tukan-T5 (4317) 2010-10-29 22:34
very interesting monastery as a powerful stone wall.
Well, that shows just a piece.
Beautiful form and shape.
Excellent color, very impressive.

I really love this photo of the Monastery - the intricate details & soft colours of the brick work is great - the old wall has a lot of richer tones and in need of restoration - Excellent composition -
Well done on a great shot.

You're capturing well this monastery by a cgood composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see lovely Orthodox monastery with unique shape, the outer wall and entrance gate with blue/black color. It's impressive in wall design using gentle colors and dome. And, the greenery in behind draw out a good atmosphere at the point of getting to know the environment of this monastery.

Ravanica monastery now becomes a main attraction in Senje Sasa, that site helps the visitors to understand the history of Serbia
pierrefonds (58824) 2014-12-26 7:41
The fortified wall is helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the wall and of the monastery. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice dya.
fritzi007 (7654) 2015-01-30 7:40

The vantage point for this photo is ideal, the monastery seems to be rising rom it it walls. The lush green hill provides a wonderful background.
silah (2776) 2015-02-13 13:41
It looks breathtaking shot. Perfectly exposed that gives us to see background clearly. Colours and clarity look wonderful. I liked very much of it. TFS my friend. GREETINGS, Salih.

Bonjour, cher Sasha,
Très belle présentation de l'église avec son haut mur et son panneau affichant le plan de l'édifice.
Du très bon travail photographique.
shreya2000 (1390) 2015-03-23 23:00
Nice picture. Light management is very good. the old structure is looking very nice. I like it.
mkamionka (31537) 2015-04-22 13:03
I like very much the Byzantine style because it is so little known to me. First and only time I have actually seen it was in Greece. I was fascinated by the little churches with a lot of architectural details and unique charm. It is really sad if someone is destroying on purpose such beautiful structures.
Lovely temple here, with great natural and so colorful background. I would prefer it without the wall but one does not always have a choice.
Very well done!
