Adjacent to the Recoleta Cemetary, this 18th Century Jesuit church is the 2nd oldest building in Buenos Aires and has been extensively restored since. It is worth looking inside for its baroque silver alter piece and its pre-hispanic features. You can go upstairs to its cloisters, which were opened to the public in 1997, which is now a small musuem which houses religious artefacts over the centuries. You can get great views of the Cemetary down below! There are guided tours available in Spanish and English.

une photo de nuit offrant des contrastes bien marqués entre l'église illuminée et son environnement.
Le ciel est magnifique, et belle silhouette des arbres.

I like very much the way you have composed the scene and the use of light here, amazing sky all over and very good light management over the Church.
Very good photo work.

great exposure on the distant building, I like very much the play of light on it and the fine details of the architecture. Its colours have a delightful softness and luminosity that is intriguingly contrasted by the dark surroundings. The sky is fascinating and offers a stunning sense of drama. The atmosphere is mysterious and suggestive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

It would be an excellent night shot, the noise is a bit disturbing though. Nevertheless: composition, colours & lights ara very well done.

Very nice night scene. I like the illuminated basilica, but the sky is also great. I like the design made by the clouds, and the silhouettes of the trees. The bit of red light on the left also adds another nice detail.

There is a very special mood in this picture, with the illumination of the buildings and the dark clouds in the sky above. A beautiful church and a very good capture that creates these special feelings.

beautiful blue hour photo. I had the pleasure to visit the cemetery and I have some photos of this church as well but in your photo it looks just spectacular. Very well lit and perfectly balanced with the lights of nature. I so regret that I did not do any blue hour photos in BA.

Good lights control and nice deep sky
I think that it was possible to make a closer view to reduce the black zone on foreground
