The Kozelets’ main church and architectural attraction is the Cathedral of the Rozhdestva Bogoroditsi (Nativity of the Blessed Virgin). The cathedral was built in the mid-18th century (from 1752 to 1766) in the late Ukrainian Baroque style by architects Ivan Hryhorovych-Barskiy and Andriy Kvasov, according to a project developed by imperial architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Funds for the construction of the cathedral were provided by Olexiy Rozumovskiy and Kirilo Rozumovskiy, who was appointed as Hetman in 1750.

fantastic example of Ukrainian Baroque architecture. Beautiful white walls and nice dark green domes. The composition with the trees above and the gate is just perfect. Outstanding quality.

Another beautiful cathedral captured very beautifully with those branches hanging from both the sides. The green domes on the white color facade look so beautiful. The lighting, sharpness and colors are superb. I like the architecture .
jlbrthnn (79789) 2012-01-18 10:00
The French churches I propose to TE are much less beautiful than all the beautiful Orthodox churches in your collection. I'm envious ;) The foliage artfully frame the elements of the architecture. The light, colors and sharpness are perfect. Congratulations.
Have a nice evening

Excellent display of colors and sharpness.
axiotea (21647) 2012-01-19 7:41
One more beautiful cathedral to add to your religious monument series, for which the tight framing works well. As usual, there is a good light & a pleasant blue sky. I also appreciate the inclusion of the branches on each side of the cathedral.

Wow ..... What a great composition in this medium shot showing us this wonderful cathedral as clearly, enjoying its elegant architecture, with such beautiful ornaments on its façade, delightful image with that profusion of domes and towers, great POV, framing the building so artistic way, with those in the upper branches.
Perfect light, color and sharpness. Great job. I love it.

Good Morning Sergiy,
This is a most beautiful shot. The architecture has such wonderful clarity that it makes one feel to be actually there! You have done well to include so much in the one shot and not lose definition.
The dangling boughs add a little gentleness to the very upright impresion of the building.
Have a lovely w/e,

I see several splendid additions to your gallery.
This piece of architecture is spectacular. So rich so impressive and well renovated. You have captured it in a great light with the pleasant shadows creating almost the three dimensional feeling. Great POV, attractive framing with the green vegetation.

Лепота! Хорошая контрастность, отлично видны архитектурные детали, чаще пересвечивают снимок в таких условиях. Хороший выбор съемки, березки гармонично составляют рамку.
Да, скульптуры год от года ставят все интереснее. Восхищаюсь мастерством.
Смотрю отзывы на беззеркальные SONY nex, заманчивая перспектива.
Удачной недели, Сергей.
