Von Frelsers Kirke in Copenhagen is amazing, because you can climb the spire on a spiral staircase which wraps around the outside of the structure, giving amazing views of the city and a sense of mild peril. I loved how the gold leaf glinted against the deep blue sky.

Amazing and beautiful view of the church, Will!
The tones of your b/w are superb as well as is the composition.
Crooked view accentuates the vertigo-effect of the spiral staircase.
Excellent piece of work!

Superbe ambiance ... qui me fait un peu peur ... La compo est terrible comme l'image.

Hi Will! Well executed and post-processed shot! The B&W gives it an apropriate ambience, with sharp contrast and beautiful reflections. The composition is excelent too and very thoughtful, as the church is ponting to one of the corners and our eyes are taken in that direction! Congratulations indeed!

Very nice photo with a drama-look. Some parts are a bit unsharp, but that matches actually very well to this drama-look.
Nice b en w colours!

marvellous composition and good exposure. I like the dark hues. Thanks for the description, it brings sensations to the mind!

An original and different angle - I like those kind of shots :-)
I like your title even "Von" (From in German) should be "Vor" (Our in Danish)
"Vor Frelser Kirke" = "The Church of our Saviour".
Thanks for Will for sharing and the nice words, you can find more shot from this fine sight under "Christianshavn"
for instance my own special angle :-)

The spire allows a good view over the city and you allow a good view on the spire :-) Nice shot, good sharpnes of the church and amazing sky.

One of my fav structure in Copenhagen, the top part of Saviour's Church due to the spiral stairs wrapped around the building up to the spires.
Brilliant pov and the black & white too.
