Magnificent architectural details in this church!
Very attractive picture! Blue, "white", green and golden colors look superb in those walls and towers! The trees and the bluest sky added interest to the image! The drawing/painting in the lower façade looks so beautiful too!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, vertical format and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congratulations!

Lepa stara katedrala, vrlo interesantna arhitektura za vreme kada je napravljena, mnogo lepo izgleda.
Jednostavne linije i boje docarale su njenu lepotu, vi ste je dobro prikazali tekstom i lepom fotografijom, svidja mi se vas rad, cestitam.
Prijatno vece, Paja.
Beautiful old cathedral, a very interesting architecture of the time when made, a lot of good looks.

The baroque style is indeed over the top with this appealing church with architectural add-ons to appeal to the visual senses, all in light blue and whites in multiple angles.
thanks for sharing,
siolaw (38292) 2010-05-03 23:35
First, sorry for the confusion!
Good vertical framing of the wonderful church with nice soft colors. Exposure is well metered with no overexposition of the white parts. As sharp as it gets too.
Waylim (25502) 2010-05-03 23:35
The church in Ukrain really has a very cheerful and brighter colors, very spring like, and also a little fairly tale like. I'm not judging, but the green roof is kind of different than other roof mostly in brown or reddish. Anyway, just an observation. Your photographic quality is relaly wonderful, good sharpness and clarity, the blue wall, green roof, green tree, blue sky all seem to blend into each other, but the sharpness and clarity of your photo help distinquish it and makes it stand out more.

J'aime cette architecture bien restaurée qui rivalise avec le ciel pour la couleur et la luminosité.
Le travail est remarquable.

Hello Sergiy, The colour, clarity & light are stunning in this well framed scene. Beautiful church, well captured from a good POV.

Still an good example of the talent of your builders in Ukraine, this church is once more superb and comes to supplement your beautiful collection of photographs which one does not weary oneself to detail. Here the weather emphasizes well these colors which merge almost with the sky. The vegetation on the right allows a pleasant contrast. Thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
francio64 (39888) 2010-05-05 16:20

An impressive architecture, decorated and painted exquisitely, that you have caught with a great elegance in a good vertical setting.
I like the light and its nice effect on the colors of the Cathedral, in a very well realized composition.
A beautiful work, my friend.

beautiful achitecture!!! Amazing color of the church.
It is very majestic and charming at the same time.
Very well presented in the best possible light from a good POV. The dark blue sky makes a nice play with the blue of the church. The trees add a nice framing elements and some other color for a contrast.
Fantastic postcard! TFS

An excellent presentation of this superb baroq church. The framing is well selecetd, the trees give a vegetal framing to the relgious edifice. I like the harmony between the blue of the sky and the blue of the church.

The blue color of this church is amazing.
Very nice picture.
emka (102742) 2010-06-09 11:34
Hi Sergiy, With its blue colour and slender view - it is high and narrow, it reminds me Андрiївська церква in Kiev. Nice towers so close to each other. Beautiful composition with a lot of blue colour together with green domes. Superb shot.
I look at your photos with interest, also travelogues, as in September I plan to visit Ukraina - namely I go to Krym and Odessa. I am looking forward to see the places known from the literature - where I would look for traces of Pushkin and Mickiewicz.
Have a nice evening
fotka (4601) 2010-08-04 10:07
It's a typical Ukrainaian architecture beautifully renovated. The vertical composition is a great choice. Superb colors, light, sharpness and evidently a note.
Tfs and best regards,
batalay (39581) 2010-08-15 4:21
I have been absent from TE lately while doing a spate of travels, but it is always a pleasure to come back and peruse through your rich gallery. And indeed you have some superb new shots. The Spaso-Prebrazhenskiy Sobor Cathedral depicted here is accentuated in its verticality by the clever vantage point you've chosen. The colors and resolution are first rate.
We are going to be visiting the Ukraine — specifically Yalta, Sevastopol and Odessa in approximately three weeks on the the Crystal Serenity.
paololg (31448) 2010-08-21 14:12
Ciao dear Sergiy,
pleasant to see how the blue one of the church resembles to the blue one of the sky, leaving that the white lines drawing the forms of the church. Perfect the management of the light and the sharpness, that allows us to also admire the fresco, Congratulations, my friend!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
fritzi007 (11575) 2010-08-23 12:33
The Ukrainians love the blue colors, right?
Very good picture quality!
axiotea (21651) 2010-09-04 10:27
You've got an interesting gallery and the choice was not easy :)
The edifice is very elegant and the good light allows to see nicely the architectural details in a fine sharpness. The clear blue sky made for a perfect BG.
iainsp (2866) 2010-09-13 7:59
A wonderful shot of a beautiful piece of architecture. You have produced a crystal sharp photograph and have managed the colours well so that the blue church does not fade in to the blue sky.
Thanks for sharing, Iain
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2011-04-05 9:00
