I visited the old Ukrainian town of Lubni many times before, but I did not see its main sight, which is situated at the distance of 6 km from the town’s center, on the high right bank of the Sula River, near the Mhar Village. This is Mharskiy (Lubenskiy) Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Monastir.

Estival light and really appreciable blue sky to emphasize the architecture of this superb tower which lets predict the beauty of this monastery that one can see in background. A beautiful photograph where clearness is pleasant for the details, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good day,

Hello Sergiy ,
What a beautiful white church tower ! Excellent exposure of the white walls , and superb sharpness . I wonder if a vertical format would have worked better , withoute the right part .

An amazing white building, with more green domes behind it on the church. It's very tall and narrow, and your photo is well exposed and sharp. I suggest cropping from the right, as I think the building is too central in the picture. But it is very imposing, and your low viewpoint is a good one. A beautiful Summer sky, too.

Fine shot of this imposing tower. The inclusion of the church in the background is nice adding further interest in the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness. The fine blue sky creates nice contrast for the white tower.

I like how you've presented the monastery's edifices creating a diagonal in the image. It is luminous, well exposed and colours are just great!
jlbrthnn (79791) 2010-09-21 14:37
Good evening Sergiy,
The low-angle shot and the point of view allow this spectacular composition. The well controlled light does not create over-exposure. The colors are superb. congratulations.

The low POV brings out a clear impressivness in this building. A very beautiful architecture and an excellent capture with superb colours!

Good morning Sergiy!
Magnificent POV on this monastery, with the high tower as the main element supervising the rest of the buildings.
A superb palette of colours highlighted by the bright white of the edifice!
Are there a lot of monks still living in all these places?
Thanks for adding to your collection!

Your low vantage point has accentuated the verticality of this astonishing structure, rising like a multi-layered wedding cake from the hilltop. It's a majestic building and you have brought out its majesty.

This is an amazing building, towering on the hill in all its pure white beauty..!
It is stunning to see how much resources mankind has invested in religious buildings around the globe, maybe more during days gone by than present times...
This is a well composed presentation, pin sharp details and vivid colours!

wow, beautiful postcard from another mysterious monastery. The tower looks very impressive. I admire how well are the sacral buildings in Ukraine preserved, they all seem like newly painted.
Very well composed here. The church in the left corner looks interesting too.
Great light and colors,
very well done,
siolaw (37644) 2010-09-23 21:44
This one looks difficult to take, brecause it is so high, but i think you did a good job here. Quality is impeccable with sharp details and bright, natural colours.
Maybe pointing a bit more to the left, to get it off the centre was also an option..

A very proud monastery setting with its white a beautiful contrast to the dark blue sky. Absolute clarity and sharpness. very well done
Thanks for your critique of my durian tree. I selected this shot, as Durian is not well known outside this region.
iainsp (2626) 2010-09-24 17:38
Another great shot - you often seem to get this fabulous PoV where the church buildings in the background echo those in the foreground. As always, nice sharp contrasts and good depth of field. Nice, Iain.
emka (68516) 2010-09-26 21:54
Splendid example of Ukrainian architecture. I like the green domes with the stars. Excellent presentation.
