The Franciscan Church is a place of worship in Cluj-Napoca. It was built between 1260 and 1290, on the site of an older Catholic church destroyed during the Tatar invasions in 1241.
In 1390, the Benedictine monks received the church. They extended it and built a small Gothic cloister near the church, with the help of John Hunyadi.
In 1556, the Queen of Hungary, Isabella Jagiełło moved to the cloister and lived there with her son John II Sigismund Zápolya until 1557.

Good Morning Daniel,
I particularly like how you have used the lines and the shadows to make the golden tower a most imposing focal image.
Have a good day,

Hello Daniel - Another shot where you exploit the contrast between light and shade with accomplishment. A nicely composed image where the brightly coloured clock tower pulls one into the shot. Warm regards rosemary

love this! A classic composition with enticing lines and perfect detail. But it is the light on the church and your management of it that makes this so special. Beautiful image and presentation.
Have an enjoyable weekend - warm wishes - Brian.

Nicely composed photo, the church being pleasantly surrounded by the wall at left, the bikes, the monument and the tree. Good light management for this contrasted scene.

Une superbe composition, j'aime bien le choix du point de vue: débouchant sur une belle perspective jusqu'à l'église.Très bell lumière.

hai dato profondità all'immagine inserendo le bici in FG.
Mi piace il modo in cui la luce del sole rende il campanile della chiesa,

It is wonderful to have such a great subject. But it is even greater to have a photographer like you who can capture that image in such magnificent way.
Have a nice weekend,

Very beautiful and interesting urban environment!
Very attractive and pleasant-looking photograph of it!
Sharpness, management of (difficult) light, colors, vertical format, white & grey borders, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
Have a great week-end,

des lumières difficiles et peu de soleil sur cette place, mais heureusement, il irradie cette église qui ressort donc très bien avec ses couleurs chaudes. Un cadrage vertical efficace.

nice the view of the Franciscan church with its bell tower to dominates on the backdrop of the image.I like the fallen warm light on it as created perspective from the pedestrian.
Have a good Sunday,Danos

i like the light over the top of the church, fine vertical format and colors.
holmertz (27216) 2012-05-06 8:12
I remember this place and the pleasant atmosphere I noticed here while looking for a (non-operating) internet café. You have chosen a fine POV to include the parked bikes. The bikes and the long façade, as well as the trees, give good depth to the picture. The light falls very nicely on the church and the red building beside it.

Ciao Daniel, great view of lovely church, lovely composition with bikes in FG, excellent perspective, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

What so appealing is the glow of warm light catching on the church, and is just great and really sets the mood of the shot, a truly relax and peaceful atmosphere and the combination of fg elements and framing gives it a deeper feel into the distance. And there is a wonderful stark contrasting colors to draw attention and the way you have taken in the whole scene. I think it adds to the emotional impact of the picture. You have captured the moment well and it's the subtle glow that does it.
Well done, Congrats, TFS

The yellow tower contrasts superbly against the pale blue sky. Good sharpness & perspective. I like the repetition of the fg bicycles neatly parked on the side-walk. Good shadow detail in the cobblestone street & the people add scale. Have a great Sunday!

Ce atmosfera placuta de relaxare, de calm, de normalitate- as zice-.... Tare frumos,eu in orasul meu nu gasesc nicaieri asa ceva...la noi totul e o plantatie de mazare, cat vezi cu ochii....
Pup, si ai grija de tine,
