I went to Russia for two weeks in January. I've been back 11 days now(as of Feb., 8, 2011) and I'm still freakin out that I actually went to Moscow and saw this with my own eyes. I missed the airport bombing by one week. I hope Viktor, my taxi driver is ok...

Cathedral of the Annunciation - Built between 1148 and 1449 the beautiful private church of Russia's Grand Dukes and Tsars, where the ruling family were married, their newborn heirs to the throne baptized and their confessions heard.

As of the buildngs being 'skew': well, if you've been around since the 1400's I imagine it would be natural to be that way. Oversharpened? Well, I did that specifically for your monitor Karen! It looks fine on mine... };>)

Superb image from a place we seldom see here at DPC. Lovely balance, light, composition with the dark tree and golden domes juxtaposed.

Love the building and clouds in the back. tree in the front bit dark. Border distracting. Building looks skew? Good photo
