For that bike trip, the minimal plan of my grandson (then 17) and me was to drive from the banks of our Kharkiv River to the Dnieper. This aim had been achieved on the third day after passage of around 300 km and arrival into the city of Komsomolsk. There, after having a dinner, resting in the city’s central park and taking this picture of the St. Nicholas Cathedral we rode to the Potoki (Streams) railway station to come back to home.

Hi dear Sergiy,
impressive snapshot of this spectacular nature and church architecture, which you perfectly well executed using lower POV. Beautiful vivid colors, sharpness, great lighting. Very lovely picture. Thank you and TFS.

A beautiful church with many fine details. But the low POV you have chosen here also brings out many pleasant colours from the foreground flowers. A very well composed picture!

the place and the architecture of this Cathedral are beautiful,but what I like even more than that is the way you composed and framed the scene by using so low POV-the effect is amazing for me.I like this proximity to the flowers in the FG.Very attractive shot!
Have a good day

Here you have achieved a fabulous composition, combining the beauty of nature with these wildflowers in the foreground and an upward perspective, the wonderful picture of the church with its beautiful domes game.
Esplendido colorful, with a wonderful brightness and sharpness.
Enjoy a good day.

I like very much your composition and the way this impressive cathedral is emerging from the lovely, though, shady greenery. This shot must have been difficult due to the dim lighting, the long shade and the pale colour of the cathedral that matched the pale sky. You seem to have dealt with the difficulties very calmly and effectively. The definition is excellent, all the elements and details have kept their charm, the light has been made the most of and the peaceful atmosphere of the end of the day is delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

This is so nice you really do capture some beautiful images of the Churches - I was thinking I may of cropped some of the greenery but after looking carefully I like your photo just the way it is.
The colours & clarity are wonderful.

Dobryj den' Sergiy,
I like the subdued quiet mood of this place, with soft dim light and nice contrast between light directed on the church and the shade in the foreground. Lovely field flowers scattered around tall summer grass. This peaceful scene reminds me of Russian summer - I can almost feel the sweet scent of different grasses and wild flowers. Great vertical composition and a smart POV, from way below the hill on which the church stands!
