Its walls and vaults were painted by Raphael's pupils after his sketches and under his supervision. The Hermitage gallery was created at Catherine II's wish.

The people add scale and I like the reflections in the polished floor. Good sharpness and superb repetition of the curved ceiling arches. The intricate patterns on the columns at right add interest. Excellent colour and saturation. Tfs!

Merhaba dear Deniz
What a great shot. The off-centre POV is artistic and unique. I like the asymmetrical quality to it. Superb colours and sharpness. The HDR is restrained and very attractive. Nice work, it's a beauty.
Thanks for sharing, have a good weekend
