St. Pauls Cathedral is one of the taller and most impressive buildings in London, and certainly its most impressive church in terms of stature. The huge dome dominates the cityscape on the northern side of the Thames. The current version of the building was built in 1708 and was largely spared during WW2 during the blitz raids. A team was regularly assembled during the Nazi bombings to put out incendiary bombs that would fall during the night. The church, designed by Sir Christopher Wren is 111 metres tall and houses the remains of Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington in its underground crypts. It is a must see for any visitor; both a visit to the inside to witness incredible furnishings and internal architecture and to the roof (golden gallery) to observe some of the best views of the English capital.

Belle présentation de la cathédrale St Paul's,
lumière et contrastes sont agréables.
Tu aurais pu par exemple redresser les lignes de perspective du bâtiment sur le côté.

A very good composition of this iconic dome standing out bright white against the deep blue of the sky and surrounded by the greenery. Your POV and low angle view make it even more impressive. Perfectly executed and composed view. A fine piece of photography.
