The St. John the Baptist Cathedral also called Lublin Cathedral It is the name given to a religious building that is located in the city of Lublin in Poland. It was built between 1592 and 1617 as a church of the Society of Jesus. It was one of the first baroque churches in Poland. Since the early 19th century is the cathedral of the diocese and since 1992, is the cathedral church of the Archdiocese of Lublin. The church was built between 1592 and 1617 as a church of the Jesuits. The design was modeled after the iglesa Il Gesù in Rome comes from Giovanni Maria Bernadoni. It is a three-aisled basilica with a wide nave.
Lublin is the ninth largest city in Poland and the second largest city of Lesser Poland. It is the capital and the center of Lublin Voivodeship. Lublin is the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River, and is located approximately 170 kilometres to the southeast of Warsaw.
Lublin, until the partitions at the end of the 18th century, was a royal city of the Crown Kingdom of Poland. Its delegates and nobles had the right to participate in the Royal Election. In 1578 Lublin was chosen as the seat of the Crown Tribunal, the highest appeal court in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and for centuries the city has been flourishing as a centre of culture and higher learning, together with Kraków, Warsaw and Lviv.
Although Lublin was not spared from severe destruction during World War II, its picturesque and historical Old Town has been preserved. The district is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments.

A splendid ensemble of architecture beautifully captured despite the menacing sky. Ideally exposed with excellent colours and clarity. The dark sky makes a lovely contrast with the golden tones of the architecture, clear evidence that you don't always need a blue sky to create a successful image.

Bonjour, cher Christophe,
Ces édifices ressortent magnifiquement sous ciel gris et lourd.
Ces édifces en retour d'équerre sont prestigieux.

The yellowish tones of the cathedral make the building stand out nicely against the heavily overcast sky.
It really looks like a storm is coming.
Good clarity and sharpness of the cathedral.
Best regards, Paul

J'aime de plus en plus ces ciel très nuageux et presque noirs car ils offrent de belles textures dramatiques. J'apprécie que tu aies coupé la tête des voitures.

The point of view is showing the details of the St.John the Baptist cathderal. It is clear and sharp. The cloudy sky seem to be bringing rain. Have a nice day.

Excellent POV, cropping out the cars like that. The post processing looks like a slight HDR, which has managed to retain the dramatic sky and also bring out the colours and details of the architecture. An excellent photo, thanks for sharing.
