[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken in front of St.Peter and Paul Church, see the picture in WS1.
The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul is the oldest Baroque building in Krakow. Construction was begun in 1597 by Jozef Britius for the Jesuit Order, and completed by Giovanni Trevano. Built on a cruciform plan, the stone facade is based on Roman church Il Gesu.

In the BG you can see another church, the one of oldiest church in Krakow: St. Andrew's Church is the best example of the romanesque style in Krakow. This church was founded in the 11th century by Sieciech, palatine of duke Wladyslaw Herman. The fortifying character of the church is visible, especially in the lower part of the building, where walls are incredible thick and there is hardly any windows. Two beautyful slim Romanesque towers are covered with Baroque helmets. The interior is mostly Baroque. See this church in WS2.

Buna Mihaela !

Asta-i cea mai faina dintre "poloneze".
Imi place compozitia, imi plac si culorile astea sumbre.

vichendel fain,

Buna Mihaela..
frumoasa si sugestiva imagine.. Imi place POV-ul ales.. Ai reusit sa prinzi TOATE statuile..
Numai bine..
te pup,

Well taken; good POV and exposure!
What you say about a lower POV?

Excelent POV, culori si texturi. Imi plac statuile si tonurile cafenii ale acoperisului sun acest cer gri.



Buna Mihaela,
fotografia aceasta e de exceptie! Ca toate fotografiile din Polonia de altfel :) Arhitectura e deosebita, iar unghiul din care ai facut fotografia scoate si mai bine in evidenta frumusetea locului. Superb! Abia astept sa o vad si pe urmatoarea.

Numai bine.

ps: points will follow
