This Blahovishchenska (Annunciation) church was built in the detached part (called as a skete) of Mharskiy (Lubenskiy) Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Monastir (see my TE shot “Welcome to the Monastery of Mhar!”).
In the skete, there is a spring with good water. Around the spring, there are many nice bushes of Cossack’s juniper (seen in the middle ground of the picture), which is very widely used for landscape design in Ukraine.

A very beautiful construction of the image to present to us this splendid church under a pleasant estival sun, I like much the balance of the image and the good light. When I look at the map, I notice that this church seems surrounded by a very beautiful environment. Pretty and interesting glance, thank you Sergiy for the instructive note.
With all my friendships and excellent Sunday,

Wonderful architecture, in white and blue as often for Ukrainian churches.
The composition is great with the flowers and the rock in the garden on the FG and the light blue fence that leads us to the entrance of the church.
Best regards, Paul

This combination of architecture and nature is simply splendid.
I like your good taste in the composition, with a low POV and one really effective framing for to offer us a very attractive image .
The flowers in foreground are a nice detail, and the graphical quality is very high, because of a great light and a few magnificent colors.

What a beautiful composition you made with this wonderful monastery, its crowning the high ground image makes it stand out with more beauty on the beautiful sky, the rose in the corner in the foreground adds charm to the picture.
Good management of light, beautiful colors and as always a quality image.
