I wouldn't mind living in this church, if it becomes a house, with an awesome view of the valley below. Simple but functional architectures. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

it is very pretty church and quite specific style in architecture but what I like the most of it is the charming location. What a shame the air was not clear enough to see the whole panorama in the background - it must be magnificent. Very good POV and framing, nicely saturated colors and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Wolfgang ,
Interesting architecture for this solitary chuch that seems to be lost in the moutains . The mist in the valley and the poor light add to the atmosphere .

una foto molto bella .
Il soggetto è di massimo interesse, i colori sono molto belli e la composizione è fatta molto bene e anche il cielo è quello giusto per dare un tono drammatico all'ambiente che circonda la chiesetta.
Ciao e buona serata

Schoene Aufnahme dieser huebschen Bergkirche in Murtal. Gutes Blickwinkel und perfektes layout. Das verlaengerte Dach rechts ist sicherlich eine Massnahme gegene Schneelavinen.
Danke schoen und ein schoenes Abend

Interesting and unique place, very well composed and captured this beautiful image. It looks like a nice place to visit

Fantastic setting for this unassuming little church. I really like that you've framed it tight, but allowed for enough exterior space to show the vast and distant surroundings. There's a nice sense of height, as it appears perched on the edge of the mountainside. Soft, even light throughout, and sharp focus. A minimal, but very pleasant image and calm atmosphere conveyed. Always fun to take a look back at older photos, yeah? :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Interesting surroundings for a church. There one can hear mass and pray without any disturbance.
I like the soft light and the sober colors of the church.

It looks quite cold and windy here on this altitude. The little church seems to be very well built and this picture also shows the impressive landscape below.
holmertz (52804) 2014-05-07 1:28
This church is very well placed and we get a good idea of the spectacular view of the valley and distant mountains. It must be a great experience to be standing right outside it. Your POV is well chosen and the light is well handled.

Good evening Wolfgang,
Built on high terrain, well fortified to withstand strong winds and storms on the slope, beautifully taken its photo from a higher point.
Good contrast (which I value the most)against the cloudy sky.

Traumhaftes Foto, die Kirche scheint in der Luft zu schweben, die Architektur ist sehr interesant und ist der ganzen Umgebung gut angepasst

Guten Morgen, Wolfgang,
Excellent photo! Just a ballad! Very interesting historic note and good illustration. The cloudy sky looks very dramatic, it's good background for the old Kirche.

Fine view of this remote Austrian Alps church with its rustic charm and sturdy tower dominating the heavenly scene.
Thanks for sharing,

What a beautiful church situated in Austrian Alps Wolfgang, a slate roof, pastures with beautiful green hues around the monument, a safe place to stay, greetings
ourania (45534) 2014-05-17 7:27
the church building is unusual and interesting and, in spite of the low lighting, you achieved superb sharpness on it. It looks mysterious to me and I have several questions regarding the purpose of its specific features. I like very much the perspective and framing of your presentation. The heavy atmosphere and dark colours give a dramatic character to the building and its surroundings. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A lonely and proud building well presented in this photo, TFS!

They always seem to put these Catholic pilgrimage churches in the most difficult places! I think there's a reason behind that ;) But what a beautiful view once you get there. Stunning colours and I like the hazy background which emphasises the height and bird's eye view.
Warmest wishes, have a good week
