This photo was taken on my way to the Church of Saint Clare (Klara kyrka) which you can see far in the distance.
The "typical" view of Stockholm again...
But this mixture of architectural styles of different years, in fact, represents a strange (and yet natural) integrity. When you are in Stockholm and see all this you realize: this is right as it should be.
The city looks as usual: happy and reserved; sunny, relaxed and busy; it accepts you with unforgettable dignity.
On the very right (you can't the the whole building) there is The Royal Swedish Academy of Arts (Kungliga Akademien för de fria konsterna) founded in 1773 by King Gustav III.
In the distance there is the Church of Saint Clare (Klara kyrka); it is located on Klara Västra Kyrkogata in the Klara area in lower Norrmalm. The graveyard has had the same location since the 1600s.
PS. The left part of the photo (the building in the shade) is a little darker in the original photo, so I adjusted shadows and levels for it a little bit.

The sky is what makes this photo great. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The road leads the eye into the scene nicely giving the shot a nice sense of direction.

The shot is authoritative.
A solid and strong composition with the dark blue sky.
The shot has everthing.......from cars to raod,from trees to Church, froum clouds to sky.......its not the Canon EOS 450D, this time, its you, Elena.
The life in the shot provides the necessasry edge....great.
A photograph is nothing but the mirror image of the photogapher......how else can I express!!
You made my day.

Beautiful cityscape! Captured expertly the difference of architectural styles with a nice composition. I like blue sky and white floating clouds, and a couple at left bottom. Excellent shot!
Have a nice weekend, Hisashi

I also like your presentation of this place with the mix of different styles. You are right, the impression is still a natural one. But it is the sky that makes this composition very attractive! Very well seen and captured!

Amazing how you have managed to make one of the uglier parts of Stockholm look so inviting and charming. The very saturated colours are one explanation, the sky (as others have pointed out) is another. But I would like to add the couple on the left waiting to cross the street. They mean so much for the atmosphere of the picture, bringing life into what is normally a very sterile area of mainly government offices.
I see that you have been busy while I've been away. I'll take a closer look at your other recent photos later.

Ha en skön helg!
