St. Pantelejmon - Plaosnik Ohrid

Located in Ohridís old town, Plaosnik is an utterly unique phenomenon: it was recently reconstructed, with loving attention to detail, precisely in the style of a Byzantine church, right down to the red bricks and mortar.An early Christian sacral building dating from the 5th century was discovered here, built over the remains of an older antique building whose cistern was found in the atrium of the newly built temple.
Today, Plaosnik is one of the most exhilarating Byzantine-style churches in Macedonia. Its floor is covered with mosaics of twenty wave-shaped tassel interspersed with the figures of flowers, birds and animals. The very fact of its reconstruction is evidence of the strong affection Macedonians still feel for their Byzantine heritage.

Zdravo Saso,

Prekrasna fotografija.
Odlicen POV i ostrina.
Obrabotkata e fantasticna.

Pozdrav i sť najubavo,

This is very impressive Saso especially after considering your cam. Plaosnik looks majestic and unique in this photo. I do like the roughness or graininess as it lends an aged appeal. The sepia treatment and the vignetting also help the mood you like to convey. My best regards.

Odlicno sraboteno.
Sekoja cest mi se dopadja .
Ubav vikend

Hello Saso,

Ciao Saso

What effects do you have beautiful here my friend ..
I was reading your text information and cultural
I see that you mention that it was recently
built, I hope it is the restoration of the Church.
I like the top, with beautiful lines and super
purposes here, good sepia further enriches the atmosphere of the place.
Good perspective and soft colors.
Very well composition,

Best regards,
