Uspenski Cathedral by ageofloss Uspenski Cathedral by ageofloss
- Three exposure HDR.
- Taken in Helsinki.
- Posing by ~Doniou (thanks mate).
- EOS 40D & Sigma 10-20mm.

"Uspenski Cathedral was built in the Russian Byzantine style in 1862-1868, and is the biggest Orthodox church in western Europe. It was designed by Aleksei Gornostajev, and was styled after an old church built in the 16th century near Moscow in Russia. The bricks were brought from Bomarsund fortress in Aland which had been destroyed during the Crimean War in 1854. The dome is held by four monolithic granite pillars. Altogether, the cathedral has 13 golden onions which represent the number of the Christ and the Apostles".

Hope you like it =)

I enjoy HDRI more when it is done this way, where the image in enhanced but not turned into something different.

Excellent shot with great perspective.

Wow. This is simply stunning. It's an incredible shot.

The cathedral looks amazing in that light, and has a 3D feel, which makes it leap out of the frame. Brilliant effect. The colour of the sky is fantastic. The clarity is so detailed I can even see the stars. Awesome stuff.

I also love the perspective, and the sense of drama it adds. It's inspiring to see work of this quality.

The light adds a lot to the church here, it looks extra textured in a way. Also, I like your "model" and for some reason the little chimney on the left. However, there is something I don't like about the sharpness of the photo, especially around the guy sitting. It looks too plastic.
Very nice nonetheless.

Nothing bad to say. Very well done.

I've had almost two week break of photographing. Got to do something for it I guess but painting and misc. design is taking that time.

Okay feel stupid after noticing photo is in evening. Guess I should have said -"great seeing church on an evening with more light" - perhaps during white nights?

Wow - brings back memories - late September 1994 - was there myself. After dinner we decided to take a walk, saw this very interesting beautiful church up on a hill (thought it sat up on a hill). Remember walking to the back to check out the only lights visible, since it was rather "creepy," decided to walk back to a coffee shop before returning to our hotel. Awesome photo - great seeing church in daylight . . .

Aika hemmetin upea kuva. En ees kattonu nimee ku avasin tosta etusivulta ku katoin vähän, että näyttää;pä tutulta ja sitten vasta katoin kuvan nimee.

Näyttää tosi upeelta nyt ku noi kupolit on kaikki uusittu. Ja toi taivas on niin upean sininen tossa taustalla. Tietty itte tykkäisin enemmän kyl jos tämä ystäväsi ei istuisi tuossa edessä, mutta kyl sekin menettelee.

Kaiken kaikkiaan iha älyttömän upea kuva ja hyvin rajattu. *^^*

That is one amazing picture. No wonder you are on the popular page ^^ The whole picture is flawless, the lightning are so well composed, the colors are crisp and sharp. The model is not out of place and I like that he is faced away from the camera. It sure has a Gothic feel to it. Really great shot.
