Saints Preserve Us

Uploaded: May 05, 2013


The domes of Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Youngstown, Ohio, have long fascinated me (the beautiful church was dedicated in 1925). Finally, one sunny day as we drove past, we stopped long enough to get a few photos. Busy Sunday here - have a wonderful day, everyone!

And I can see why Monnie. I seldom get a chance to do buildings and would love to be able to do some more work with them especially if I could get some beautiful pictures like this. I love the tone and I enjoy that you did'nt push the colors to bold, this is perfect. Amazing details and you did outstanding with composing the picture. Gorgeous work my friend.
Have a wonderful Sunday. #10682913
