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.

This is THE best piece of photography I've seen in the last 3 months--and trust me, I'm watching a LOT of photographers on DA.

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.
