Alexander Nevsky Cathedral by Aloba Alexander Nevsky Cathedral by Aloba
The St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (Bulgarian: Храм-паметник „Свети Александър Невски“, Hram-pametnik „Sveti Aleksandar Nevski“) is a Bulgarian Orthodox cathedral in Sofia (Bulgaria), the capital of Bulgaria. Built in Neo-Byzantine style, it serves as the cathedral church of the Patriarch of Bulgaria and is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox cathedrals in the world, as well as one of Sofia's symbols and primary tourist attractions.
The construction of the cathedral started in 1882, and was created in honour to the Russian soldiers who died during the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, as a result of which Bulgaria was liberated from Ottoman rule.
To the left of the altar is a case displaying relics of Alexander Nevsky, given by the Russian Orthodox Church. Although the accompanying Bulgarian-language plaque refers simply to "relics" (мощи), the item on display appears to be a piece of a rib.

Thank you, but I think that I should go one more time to Sofia to take it with a different perspective... I don't really like the series that I made of the cathedral.

Thank you so much for your really correct description. For the Bulgarians The St Allexander Nevski Catedral is an emblematic place. So I have moved the photo in the correct folder. :) :blackrose:

It turned out great! did you use an HDR processing here as well? If you did, it's kind of hard to tell which is a good thing i.m.o. :)

No, it looks like I used a HDR but I only used the tonal contrast. Thanks for the comment ;)

Gracias pero no, no es HDR aunque daria el pego, simplemente le he exagerado el contraste para ganar mas nubes. La primera opcion fue hacer un HDR, pero no me gusto el resultado asi que opte por hacer el convencional retoque de equilibrio de brillo y contraste y al jugar mas con el contraste vi que... obtenia mas detalles en las nubes.
Ya ves, ha sido hablar contigo esta mañana de fotografía y no he podido resistirme a colgar algo nuevo :P
