I found blogging a wonderful way of exchanging ideas and improving one self. Following meticulousmick suggestion on my post “A gem in Sinaia” I have come with two more images to choose from and still finding difficult to decide which one works better. Image I has the shape of the two monks in full vision and image II has one of the monks shown in half, throwing the balance of the image a bit.. Image I could be called “Friends forever” and Image II “Stepping into the light”
Which one works for you?
..in the thumbnail is the initial image posted in A gem in Sinaia, where meticulousmick rightly suggested that the position of the monks where a bit in the “no-man land”, which i fully agree with ..thanks for that MM !))
My latest trip to Romania took me to a beautiful monastery in Sinaia in the middle of Charpatian mountains, home to about 20 monks.
The gem of this monastery is the small church built in Byzantine style in 1695 and placed in the middle of the side courtyard.
The large Orthodox Church dates from 1846 and holds two icons presented by Russia’s Tsar Nicolas II in 1903; outside ore prayer candles.
My short trip to Berlin was full of surprises and I found the city like a Phoenix risen from the ashes!
What I enjoyed the most was the sharp lines of the new buildings echoing somehow the rigidity of Germany but also the interesting choice of architecture for their city..a mix between the communist constructivism, the a few soft rounded touches of the classicism and the flash lines of the modern look.
