[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Franciscan Church of the Annunciation (Slovene: Frančiškanska cerkev Marijinega oznanjenja or commonly Frančiškanska cerkev) is a Franciscan church located on Prešeren Square in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is the parish church of Ljubljana - Annunciation Parish.

Built between 1646 and 1660 (the belltowers following later), it replaced an older church on the same site. The layout takes the form of an early-Baroque basilica with one nave and two rows ol lateral chapels. The Baroque main altar was executed by the sculptor Francesco Robba. Much of the original frescos were ruined by the cracks in the ceiling caused by the Ljubljana earthquake in 1895. The new frescos were painted by the Slovene impressionist painter Matej Sternen.

Hello Francis Xavier!
Amazing architecture, wonderful church, marvelous facade.
Superb point of view, excellent long perspective. Good composition, very good cut. Fine capture and frame.
Wonderful sharpness. Good quality.
Well done!

Hi Francis,

A wonderful HDR treatment to the shot where you show great details from the building in the BG and the water channel!

The sharpness and POV are well managed, whereas light plays the most important part in enhancing the beauty of the picture.
Well taken!

Hi Francis
the HDR treatment has added another dimension to this shot, the pink building is almost 3 dimensional - good contrast of colours and sharpness, my only concern is the green tinge in the sky

dear Francis Xavier,
a beautiful view shot of the wonderful church on the river,
the pink color of church is so vivid in surrounding settled grayish tone,
especially it looks strangely shining between back magical cloudy sky and the rippled wonder water,
and the composition is well sophisticated to make picturesque perspective,
of course, your HDR edition is nice to enhance the vivid feeling here,
thank you for your excellent shot,

HI Francis...very nice shot...perfectly composed with great focus, depth of field and colors...this is really nice work.


As has been said the hdr effect is very good I also like the colours and the reflections A very well composed shot Nice work
