Great potential, but your composition is very wrong fo me. Not enough church and far too much tree. You could easily crop half the image, removing the left side, but better recompose in the first place to put the detail on the left.

A very attractive Austrian church, Petar.
With that tree in front of the church, I find myself wanting to see more of the building, and wondering about the two spires, how they are connected, etc.
Was there an alternative viewpoint from which you could have included more of the church's architecture and perhaps simply using the edge of the tree as a framing feature for the church?
The church is your subject and should therefore be the largest and most dominant element in your frame. You want a photo where the viewer's eye is drawn to the main attraction.

There is good light on the front of the church, and I think it could be quite atmospheric without the use of such a high ISO. Sticking to ISO100 or 200 will give you better quality images. However, earlier in the day the lighting on buildings doesn’t appear quite so strong, and there might still be some colour in the sky which is often more appealing than a very dark one. It doesn't have to be totally dark for you to have a try at night photography. Late dusk when there's still a little light left in the sky will give you scenes with less contrast as the light that's still in the sky will illuminate areas not lit by artificial lights. So when considering your subject give some thought to the time of the day.

Although you did well here with hand-holding the camera, a tripod is the better option, or finding something solid on which to place your camera.

Pamela.

Hello,
My idea for this photo is, that the Christianity at the moment is closed from the every day problems. But, I have to make new photo of this church, because I have to make it better.

Thanks a lot!
