Hi Sircreative :)
This monastery's construction began during the reign of Alexander Ypsilanti (1774–1782) and was completed by the Phanariote Nicholas Mavrogenes (1786–1790). It was built in neoclassical style, and was considered very large for that time: 43 meters long and 18 high, with walls 1 and 2 meters thick.
Unfortunatelly, now the construction is abandoned, surrounded by garbage and other yaki stuff :(
Anyway, there is hope for it....it was claimed last year by the Church and..they have some plans to restore it.
:)Mersi frumos Anda :D
Vot pt. Chiajna!
What an interesting church. Its fun to imagine what it must have been like back when it was actively in use. You've really done a great job with the lighting and focus. Will you tell us where it is when the week is over?
What an interesting structure! Personally, I think it's too tightly cropped. I noticed that when my eye ventured over to the lower left, I couldn't keep focused on the detail of the building. I thinks it's because the wall is so close to the edge of the photograph. I feel like my eye would relax more if there was a little more room over there. But it's still a great image. The contrast is perfect!
