‘Uppsala - Towering above town’
The Domkyrka of Uppsala is the largest cathedral in Sweden, even throughout Scandinavia.
You can see its twin-spired, red gothic structure from almost everywhere in town. The spires reach 120 m. in height.
The cathedral is built of local brick, giving it a unique red colour that glows in the setting sun.
The area around the Domkyrka still has the atmosphere of the old medieval town with its winding cobbled streets and its beautiful and colourful houses.
In the workshop you find a front view of the cathedral.

Antwoord op uw vraag, waar ooievaars leven in België, wel buiten Planckendeal waar er diverse nesten zijn, leven er steeds colonies in het Zwin te Knokke, een prachtig reservaat waar men uren kan turen in de Zwin vlakte, met ik weet niet hoeveel verschillende vogelsoorten, en genieten van de zon als ze schijnt.
Deze foro is absoluut scherp en mooi om naar te kijken.
Goed gedaan, Bedankt voor alles.

i clearly remember walking around this area.
I only wish i had a good camera at the time..i didn't.
its hard to fit all of these subjects into this tiny frame, but i still like it.
the buildings and colors stand out well, a fine strong visual impact for sure.
you show the local area very well.

Une photo très impressionnante. Les couleurs sont très italiennes pour un pays nordique. Le point de vue et le cadrage vertical sont excellents et la gestion de la lumière est impeccable. Quelle belle netteté des détails.

I've been to Uppsala a few times, and I've been to this cathedral, too. It really is huge and is seen from almost anywhere! Y
ou chose an interesting composition and POV :) Very colourful sight!
Probably if I shot from this POV I'd shoot several photos for a panoramic stitch.. merely to avoid lens distortion :)

davvero magnifica l'architettura di queste due torri appartenenti alla cattedrale.
Mi pice come svettano verso il cielo blu con il quale contrastano bene cromaticamente.
Luce ben gestita e ottimo sharp.

In the past, between the profane and secular world governed by binding, that the church is the tallest structure in town. And sometimes towered over the other houses around the church many times. Churches were centers of power at that time, and that should be widely visible. Your photo is a good example. Really very impressive. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Beautiful photo very well compound and executed, with the sharpness, light and colors perfect. Excellent work, congratulation.
ikeharel (76075) 2011-08-04 0:52
The enhanced colors emphasys the outlines in this wonderful towers, Paul.
The Ws also very impressive, and here the fine perspective through buildings and trees, give a nice aspect.
Have a nice Thursday
danos (101766) 2011-08-04 3:11
nice the view of this part of the city with the domes of the Cathedral to dominates the image.I like the colours as the contrast of them.
I did a WS for you just straighten the lines of this vertical frame.
Have a good day,Danos

Beautiful composition and POV.
I like colors and sharpness.
emka (104196) 2011-08-04 13:47
is this cathedral so large? we can see only facade or rather towers so it is difficult to say. The cathedral in Trondheim is also very big. Stunning colours in this composition, the red is fantastic.
williewhistler (16412) 2011-08-04 14:00
Hello Paul,the imposing towers are very well captured and nicely framed.
A very sharp and well produced shot.
Best regards Les.
anokutan (15097) 2011-08-04 14:06
Beautiful shot with bold colors.The blue sky and green tree branch are nice contrast.
Mari63 (4085) 2011-08-04 14:54
Ciao Paul, un POV impressionante, gli edifici effettivamente sembrano volerti schiacciare per quanto la percezione della loro altezza sia forte.
Eccellenti i colori, ottima la nitidezza.
s_lush (16600) 2011-08-04 23:51
This well-proportioned cathedral and other nice pieces of architecture look great, having been captured by you against the wonderful sky and with such an elegant natural frame. Excellent composition, masterful management of light and colors, and perfect quality of the capture!
mkamionka (39507) 2011-08-05 8:08
I was recently checking views from Uppsala mainly because I have applied for a job there so I remember well this cathedral from seeing (in other photos). I have to admit that this is the best photo of this church I have seen. Very interesting and original POV with plenty elements used to frame the main motif.
Very attractive capture,
abmdsudi (57160) 2011-08-05 9:50
Wow, very attractive picture with lots of super architectural details that really color this cityscape so superbly. The rich colors of course are the main highlights here also the pov and the composition and exposure are all also spot on. A delightful image worth more than two points, My compliments. Have a nice weekend
dip (23890) 2011-08-05 13:32
beautiful photo,very well framed,
great sharpness and nice architectural details,
I like the combination of red-brown and yellow colors of the buildings,
Longroute (19396) 2011-08-06 3:43
Waw! what an outstanding architecture!
you found really a very good POV which allowed you to frame this lovely church with the building at the left and the tree at the right. I'm stricken by the intensity of the colours and by the very fine light which produced a clear and crisp image with excellent sharpness. The subject, the composition and the technical quality make this photo very appealing and interesting. The visual impact is very strong.
paololg (31448) 2011-08-06 14:29
Simply wonderful, dear Paul, a picture that seems to be in 3D! Impressive perfect photo quality, especially sharpness and good light in the shadow areas. the wall in the FG contributes to the feeling of the height of the towers. Excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
mauro61 (52857) 2011-08-06 23:10
molto particoare dal punto di vista architettonico la grande Cattedrale della città che colpisce per la sua imponenza e colorazione.
Ben inserita nel contesto dell'immagine crea una scena molto gradevole,
Hansaphotos (8471) 2011-08-07 2:51
A fine capture of the old cathedral. Yes, it can be hard to compose, but I think you`ve done well, perhaps the left red wall cold have been cropped a bit. Very nice light and fantastic colours. The light enhances the fine details on the red church wall. Very nice work! TFS. Have a nice Sunday.
Best regards, Erling
jlbrthnn (76039) 2011-08-09 2:35
Le point de vue et la perspective sont magnifiques. Les formes et les couleurs bien définies sont aussi belles que spectaculaires. J'aime la composition qui inclue aussi des branches. La qualité est irréprochable. Félicitations.

mayjayne (6600) 2011-09-19 4:49
I like your tight composition with strong vivid colours, softened by the presence of the partial tree. Sweden is a lovely place to visit, filled with colourful houses.
jmdias (67165) 2011-12-29 0:59
a marvelous framing here with the shapes of this beautiful church well shown. I liked the colors and the soft light that let us to see nice details. TFS.
