Hi TE friends
This picture is from a famous Palace in Vienna.
I hope you like it !
Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna is one of the most important cultural monuments in Austria and since the 1860s has also been one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. The palace and gardens illustrate the tastes, interests and aspirations
Following the downfall of the monarchy in 1918 the newly founded Austrian Republic became the owner of Schönbrunn Palace and preserved, as a museum, the rooms and chambers.
After WWII and during the Allied Occupation of Austria (1945-1955) Schönbrunn Palace, which was empty at the time, was requisitioned to provide offices for both the British Delegation to the Allied Commission for Austria and for the Headquarters for the small British Military Garrison present in Vienna.
Later it was used for important events such as the meeting between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev in 1961.
UNESCO catalogued Schönbrunn Palace on the World Cultural Heritage List in 1996, together with its gardens, as a remarkable Baroque ensemble and example of synthesis of the arts ( Gesamtkunstwerk ). From Wikipedia

spectacular palace and the atmosphere is so beautiful. You have managed the bright light. Great depth and colour. The people made it lively and colourful. Inclusion of the lampshed and the tree at right gives nice contrast to that building. The green in FG completes the composition. Very well done. Tfs.
Have a great weekend.

Very clear and sharp image of this famous palace. I spent a whole day there long time ago.... at that time I used to take slides...
I like your very well cut composition with the grass, the tree and the line of the street lamps which create a fine sense of depth. The empty square but for few people conveys a feeling of space and the clearly defined façade with its brilliant colour seems nearly tridimensional and create a beautiful chromatic contrast with the sky. Really a very fine image.
All the best,

Se promener dans les allées du parc de Schönbrunn sous un tel ciel bleu est un véritable régal. Les couleurs ocres de la façade ressortent superbement sur ce fond de ciel et la composition est agréable.

Fine details in the classical architecture!
The colour palette is lovely, as the ochre building stands well on the blue sky and green foliage...
Fine details, and the streetlamp creates depth!

We see a very nice building in background, also the carrier and the horse depth in background before the entry. It empty square but for few people conveys a feeling of space and the clearly defined façade with its brilliant colour .
Excellent composition with great atmosphere and lovely colours.
Quiet and fine picture.
Splendid light and presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Splendida foto di architettura con colori e dettagli magnifici. perfetta la composizione con l'aiuola in primo piano a dare profondità, l'albero ed il lampione in secondo piano e lo splendido Palazzo sullo sfondo. Bellissima immagine.
Un caro abbraccio e un buon week end.

Very crisp image. At first you see only
one lamp post. On closer look there are many.
The line up looks very nice. Some lovely colours
here. Specially the blue and the yellow stands
out very well.
Have a nice week.

this is a very pretty postcard from Vienna. I had the pleasure to be there but such a long time ago that I don't have any photos taken there, and consequently I don't remember anything about this place. Very picturesque view, well composed with the stylish lamp.
Great colors too,
