The Palace of Justice is Belgium’s supreme court of law.
Measuring 20,000 square metres, the building was designed by architect Joseph Poelaert, who died 4 years before its completion in 1883. The style is described as Assyro-Babylonian, a mixture of different styles. The building is about 3 times the size of the Royal Palace and was commissioned by Leopold II, one of the first Kings of Belgium; it took 20 years to complete and cost about $300 million in today’s terms.

Beautifully managed and a warm and attractive interior Malgorzata. Your POV does credit to the vastness of the space. I can almost hear the lady's shoes click-clacking as she walks across the marble floor. Super. Warm regards rosemary

A splendid capture of this magnificent interior. The vertical format is very well chosen to emphasise the height of the ceiling. Perfectly exposed with lovely warm tones and very good sharpness. Well done.

Quel impressionnant palais de justice. Quand le juge frappe de son maillet, cela doit se répercuter sur tous les murs. Une très belle composition.

Un cadrage parfait et une superbe lumière dorée pour cette bonne photo de l'intérieur du Palais de Justice.
gildasjan (40738) 2012-08-06 0:10
Très bon rendu de la lumière et ces teintes chaudes sont très agréables.
josepmarin (57465) 2012-08-06 1:14
the mixture of different styles provides an impressive aspect to this architecture, which you offer us by means of a good framing that enhances its lines and its shapes in an elegant perspective, and with a few beautiful golden tonalities because of the interior lighting.
The management of the exposure is good, and this is obvious in the quality of image and of colors that you have reached.
An excellent work.
ACL1978 (7467) 2012-08-06 5:02
Excellent perch you found, Malgorzata, to capture this nice wide view of a stunning hall. The perspective you've chosen really highlights the sheer height of the room itself, and the yellow lighting that begins halfway up the frame enhances the effect well. Lots of great light sources here give a multi-layered effect as well. Well captured!
Cricri (100395) 2012-08-06 8:35
Grâce a toi je vois pour la première fois l'intérieur du palais, c'est somptueux, le POV parfait et des éclairages merveilleusement réussi, très belle image

Witaj dear Malgorzata
Wow! This is a masterpiece in gold, deserving of a gold medal. The symmetry and the exposition are of such high quality. A well-chosen vertical frame and incredible balance and management of the uneven light. Simply stunning. Your architectural shots are among the best I've seen on TE, congratulations.

The title is apt, a grand interior shot with tremendous depth, and the golden color is the winner with wonderful warmer tones on the columns. The pov renders the magnificent details in good symmetry, crispy sharp and superb clarity. Fine works. Congrats.

cieple kolory przyciagaja uwage. W tym zdjeciu rowniez. Piekne wnetrze. Dobry strzal z fajnego POV. Mnie tez sie podoba.
macjake (51436) 2012-08-22 3:39
really really cool!
Supreme court buildings often have this 'over the top' large scale don't they.
makes for wonderful photo's though!
a striking visual for its size and granduer.
lots of height and depth make the photo successful.
clic (13922) 2012-08-22 16:22
Your admirable control on light added to the work for straight verticals and the inclusion of small ants for scaling appreciation compose a poster wich perfection suits well to building's grandeur.
Robert1969 (6832) 2013-01-31 10:24
The title fits very well:-).
Picture has a lots of highness and depth
(great POV and composition) and the
movement of the people makes the picture
exciting. Light management is also great.
