In valley was very foggy and cloudy night, but I get up early around 06.00 am and go out to meet new adventure. This picture I take on hill St. Jost (845m).
On the top of the mountain is the Baroque church of St. Jost. The interior was renewed in 2002. Once again, while renovations were being done, frescoes were discovered and the Gothic ribs discovered were renovated. The main alter was pushed forward so that frescoes, which had been hidden from sight for about 300 years, could be renovated. The altar part of the church, where prior to the 15th century stood a small Gothic church, is decorated with frescoes painted by the renowned artist Jernej from Loka. On paintings behind the altar are images of Jewish kings and prophets of the Old Testament. In the middle below the images alongside other signatures is the barely visible signature of France Preeren, who came a lot of times to Saint Jost with his friends.
On the balcony above the main entrance to the church are three natural sized sculptures, a stature of Christ, a Roman soldier and King Herod. On the eastern frontage of the church is a memorial plaque to Janez Evangelist Krek, who visited the top several times before the 1st World War.
Hope you like it. Any comment is more than welcome!!!

A rewarding shot for your early morning - an exquisite capture of the morning mist from high up. Perfect composition, spot on exposure, and a depth in the clouds which lead all the way to the furthest peak.

I think this is amazing! No critique necessary. I would fix nothing. Beautiful. Rgds, Leilani

Splendid view Denis
A dreamy landscape with vivid colors.
The trees mass is strategically placed, it attracks our eyes, then we look at the valley.

Wonderfull capture, veyr nice autumny scenery.

This really is a wonderful landscape, full of mood and tranquility, which is enhanced by the mist. It's great that the autumn trees stand out of the mist, projecting their full colours. Composition is great, and lighting is soft. Very well captured.

Tout est splendide dans cette photo : les couleurs d'automne concentrées sur la droite,dans une petite pente, le brouillard, ces quelques arbres isolés dans la brume et cette chaîne de montagnes dans le lointain. Splendide !

Realization is OK and the light is perfectly managed. You get an interesting and good mood and that's really great.

Beatiful scenery, colorful autumnal colors, misterious morning fog - all in one photo. Thanks to this kind of pictures fall became my favourite part of the year.

A lovely layered picture Denis.I like the contrast between the brightly coloured trees with the fog subduing all the other colours.The mountains are beautifully silhouetted against the wonderful sky.
Thanks for getting up early to bring us this scene.

Hi, Denis. The mist and the colourful trees on the right give a very nivce autumnal feeling to your picture. The mist also adds depth to it and gives the colours of the foreground even more impact. You've chosne a very good POV which opens on the wide valley and the beautiful tops in the background.

Very nice misty composition with interesting coloured foreground.
Mabe a little bigger picture for giving me an impression of swiming inside the decor :)
aral (1195) 2007-11-13 14:15
odlična svetloba in kompozicija. Se motim, ali slika malenkost visi v levo?
Amandine (1072) 2007-11-15 5:53
Hi Denis, it's really a wonderfull pic, you captured well the courbs of the landscape, pointing out by the the games of automanl colors. Sharpness attracts our attention on the textures. Well done
