This shot is dedicated to the start of the new academic year on Monday and shows the main building of Moscow State University built in Stalin times in 1949-1953. It's a 36-storey building and 240 meters high.
Congratulations to all new students, I'm off to Moscow for a couple of weeks to help my kid settle down as well.

What an incredible place. That building is very imposing and very reminiscent of its era, but in my eyes it is no less beautiful than some of the finest in the world. Its sheer size alone impresses me greatly! beautiful composition, subject and lighting, and all topped off with a beautiful sky. Thanks for sharing a fascinating sight.
All the best

sei tornata sulla terraferma con una bella foto di un edificio dall'architettura molto controversa, ma che così come l'hai ripreso appare di grande bellezza, sia per la particolare luce che lo illumina sia per i colori particolarmente brillanti.
Eccellente la composizione che, posizionando gli edifici in una bella cornice fatta di cielo azzurro e di folta vegetazione li valorizza in maniera ottimale.
Complimenti: uno splendido scatto, molto ben realizzato.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

A fine panoramic view of the immense Moscow University which looks bigger than most of our Yankee universities, including my alma mater the California State University at Los Angeles.

ah yes, one of the Seven Sisters in Moscow.
If and when I travel to Moscow I'll have to make sure to visit at least one or two of them, and this one for sure because of the large reflective pool in the front.
So where was this photo taken from?
excellent pov with a sweet blueish/purplish skyline. and the University totally dominates the area.

Très belle réalisation sous cette excellente lumière.Les couleurs chaudes de l'architecture équilibrent bien les teintes douces de ce ciel.

What a gigantic and impressive building this university is!
I specially like its red and yellow colours making it stand out strongly against the blue sky and the many trees along the avenue.
Best regards, Paul

You were absent for long time - here on TE. I'm happy that I can look at your next shot. Yes there is a Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw - a very similar building the same style (socialism) and builded in the same period of time :-)
Wonderful shot, I like the blue sky. The PP is superb!
Have a nice weekend.

Excellent framing to capitalise on the beauty of this striking university building. The perspective and viewpoint ensure the eyes is focused in firmly aided by the array of eye catching colors and the lush trees in the fg are wonderful inclusion for the natural framing. The lighting looks so sublime blessed by fine weather with such subtle colors making this is so pleasant to views. Very elegant shot. Congrats. TFS

I remember seeing this mighty building on the news some 20 years ago, when Russian tanks stood in front an Yaltzin climbed on one and made a speach.
Impressive shot, show well how big it realy is.
Light shed gracefully upon, and there is fine clarity and contrast to green and blue.

Hi Marina. Socialist architecture has the tendency to be purely functional with little or no aesthetic worth, but this uni is quite grand, especially with the sun transforming it into a "golden" edifice. Nice effect. Pozdrav. Klaudio.
