Manastir Manasija (Resava) je jedan od najznačajnijih spomenika srpske srednjovekovne kulture i najznačajnija građevina koja pripada takozvanoj „Moravskoj školi“.
Nalazi se na oko 30 kilometara od autoputa Beograd-Niš, blizu Despotovca.
Manastir je podigao despot Stefan Lazarević, poznat i kao Visoki Stefan, čije se mošti,po mišljenju nekih stručnjaka, nalaze u južnom delu crkve,ispod bele mermerne ploče.
Gradnja je trajala između 1407. i 1418. godine.
Odmah posle osnivanja, Manasija je postala kulturni centar despotovine.
Njena „Resavska škola“ bila je prepisivačka radionica i bila je izvor pisanih dela i prevoda i posle pada despotovine, kroz ceo 15. i 16. vek.
Manasija kompleks je proglašen spomenikom kulture od izuzetnog značaja u 1979, a zaštićen je zakonom Republike Srbije.
Monastery Manasija, also known as Resava, is a Serb Orthodox monastery near Despotovac, Serbia, founded by Despot Stefan Lazarević between 1407. and 1418.
It is one of the most significant monuments of medieval Serbian culture and it belongs to the "Morava school".
Immediately following its foundation, the monastery became the cultural centre of the Serbian Despotate.
Its Resava school was well known for its manuscripts and translations throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, even after the fall of the Despotate to the Ottoman Turks.
Manasija complex was declared Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1979, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.

Dobar prikaz uglom i ostrinom snimka, lepa fotografija.
Dobar rad sa lepim bojama, moje cestitke.

This one also is very nice and captured by you perfectly, with good composition, bright light, beautiful colors and very high quality. Excellent presentation of this highly interesting place!
siolaw (38002) 2010-12-17 4:02
An interesting architecture for this monastery.. and quite a defensive tower next to it... The fine weather gave strong colours and contrast,also correct sharpness.
snunney (78529) 2010-12-17 4:14
A well balanced composition featuring this impressive fortified monastery. I like the shadow play along the flanks of church and tower and the attractive ambient light. Pleasing natural looking tones and good sharpness.

adramad (34787) 2010-12-17 17:06
A wonderful composition with the image of this beautiful monastery and that powerful turret.
The brightness is great and I like domes are projected on the turret of the monastery and on that of the trees.
The natural color with a very good full sharpness a great job to recreate in the knowledge of this work.
Have a nice weekend.
AKITA (15125) 2010-12-17 22:46

Величанствен стари манастир и поред импресивног и претећих тврђаве. Лепа снимак сунчан дан. Лепе боје, велики POV и савршена фокус.
pablominto (53744) 2010-12-17 23:58
The massive impact from the structures makes me believe they once were as much for defence purposes as for worship..!
Good point of view and the light falls nicely, adding a feeling of 3D to the buildings...
Well exposed and good details!
rodgerg (55767) 2010-12-18 0:37

This monastery looks familiar to me, Not that I have been there personally, but I guess I saw it in your previous gallery. Very nice shadow sunlight play, good light management and vibrant color hues. Well done.
PaulVDV (20231) 2010-12-18 11:25
The monastery is taken from a good angle so we can enjoy the view of the facades, the different domes with the crosses and the defense tower next to it.
Very beautiful are the shadows of the domes on the lower part of the defense wall.
Best regards, Paul
Longroute (19392) 2010-12-18 12:20

tukaj si izbral lep POV.
sem pa presenečen in tudi nekoliko razočaran, da ne pustiš objaviti vseh podatkov o fotografiji, ki bi nam lahko povedali več. s tem se lahko učimo tudi drug od drugega. to je naš namen, da so ob slikah tudi kaj naučimo. pri meni lahko vidiš za vse slike vse podatke.
lep večer ti želim, vojko
paololg (31448) 2011-01-20 10:13
Ciao dear Sasha,
the beautiful light emphasizes the interesting orthodox architecture of this ancient monastery. very beautiful the shade's effect of the domes of the church on the wall and that of the tree on the church. Excellent composition, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!
pierrefonds (54476) 2011-01-26 16:43
the distance between the path and the door of the monastery is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the monastery. the quality of the light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
