The Evangelical Cathedral of Sibiu


Sibiu - Hermannstadt
European Capital of Culture 2007



This Gothic cathedral was built in the XIVth century. The tower of the church is exactly 73 meters tall and its building started in 1371. In 1424 the height of the nave walls had been raised with 2.6 meters. It again suffered modifications in 1520. Even though many of the aureous decorations can not be seen, the church is full with artifacts. Here is one of the country’s perhaps most beautiful bronze laver recipient. It was made, in 1438, by Leonhardus. Supposedly it was made out of the canons that were captured from the Turks in 1437. On its side Cyrillic writings can be seen. The pipe-organ was made in 1672.

Gotta love filters and wide angle lenses. Great colors, nice angle. Too bad the top of the top is missing, but it's nothing too disturbing. Well done! =)

Polarizers make all the difference here. I haven't seen much of a change with UV filters, but the CPL definitely helps make the subject stand out.

Great job.
