Lavra Petscherska is one of numerous orthodox sacral architecture examples of Kijiv. It is a spectacular cathedral, very impressive, really making my mouth widely open (look the golden rooves of the towers).
The city of Kijiv itself is an impressive place.

An incredible work of art beautifully photographed against the sky - I really like the space around the towers and the overall balance of the image but also the detail and the muted natural colours in this light - very nice Lukasz.
best wishes Kev

That is a beautiful golden roof. The angle at which you got the shot at is good. Buildings in Europe are so wonderfully ornate- look at that artwork, on the outside of the church! In the American west, architecture is not something people seem to care much about. Buildings are built in a square and painted brown- very different from this beautiful bit you're showing. Good job!

What a lovely church, Lukasz! The reflective golden domes of this beautiful orthodox cathedral are set very nicely against a muted sky. A very nice composition and excellent tonal range, plus a real work of beauty in front of us!
