Overgrowth by alexiuss Overgrowth by alexiuss
Cathedral buildings are beautiful, because they work well with nature, not against it.

thanks goes to for contrast advice!

Of course, the "nature" we see here is what separates the stone from the mortar and brings the cathedral to the ground, but the cathedral doesn't harm nature, so to say. :D

Agonizingly intricate.
Such a different angle, capturing the beauty
and cold greatly

I love this piece because often in person I find the vines on old building like this to be very cool, however over time when you continue to look at something from the same perspective it gets old and mundane. The Overgrowth changes the point of view, which is almost like seeing this for the first time... again.

Great work.

aye. Twas mighty hard to get the angle.
Snowflakes kept attacking and landing in my eyes.
Also people looked at me suspiciously from the road while shaking their fists and muttering something about "thems damn photographers"

Impressive shot. The blue tint to the window pane and the leafless vines match perfectly with the age of the building.

O crap that is nice. Gothic style is the big deal ^^. Supergreat shot man. The angle also improved the entire pic. I turned it right for another view but it's nicer this way.

this photo is awesome in the fact that there is lttle to none photographic manipulation, yet it as if it was something like that. like some others have said, it's definately the angel of execution- 'cos it defies the norm- thus refreshing and interesting!

gr8 work!

This is an awesome shot. It looks like it would make a great opening to a horror movie because of the creepy gothic look.
