You rarely show interiors of the buildings you visit. beautiful room and excellent presentation of it. I like the white-gold decorations and nice reflections in the mirror. Nice that you could make photos inside, it is vary often forbidden, like e.g. in Madrid.

Noel_Byrne (26101) 2014-01-22 0:30
A number of words spring to mind on looking at this. Ostentatious, salubrious, the pure luxury of this place seems amazing! everything edged in gilt, and the finest furniture. You really have captured the essence of the majesty of this place, and under such splendid light too!
Thanks as always

what a nice shot here from the interior of this royal palace. I love the in coming lights. Great exposer management. Superb depth and sharpness. Love the composition. Tfs.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-01-22 1:58
Splendid view from the rich interiors of this Palace. The glowing chandelier and the golden designs have given a wonderful golden tone to the photo and created a warm atmosphere as well. I like the chosen angle and POV to show 2 walls of this room as well as a part of the beautiful ceiling. Superb shot with excellent clarity and colours. Thanks for sharing.
trevormoffiet (3112) 2014-01-22 2:22
You have a very nice distribution of light throughout this image. Beautiful colours and thoughtful composition.
abmdsudi (44964) 2014-01-22 3:54
Thanks to the narratives, this is super interior architecture fit for the royalty, apart from the atmosphere, views, colors and ambient, this is incredibly ornatted. There is much more details in this shot and an excellent perspective too with the feeling of height and depth. Pin sharp throughout in superb clarity and the soaring beauty captured perfectly with red to hold the focus firmly. Spectacular in design and functional. Great capture. Congrats
jacquest (18863) 2014-01-22 4:13
This is a very good presentation of this room. The good light enhances the colors and the architectural details are sharp even in the large version. Your image makes us appreciate the richness of this palace.
mirosu (15094) 2014-01-22 4:25
Superb interior photo, the overall arrangement is perfect. You have excellently placed the beautiful hanging light in the frame. The overall light is very good and the clarity perfect.
pierrefonds (58710) 2014-01-22 4:45
The wideness of the room is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the architecture of the room. The surrounding light is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (63901) 2014-01-22 5:21
Une image d'intérieur de très grande qualité. La lumière est parfaitement gérée et fait ressortir les détails et les couleurs. Le point de vue est excellent et va chercher le lustre en double grâce au miroir.
timecapturer (49288) 2014-01-22 6:01
Brussels is a City that I have never really explored, and this shot makes me realise that there is so much rich heritage in your capital that needs seeing and enjoying. Immaculate detail and light management which makes this so captivating and regally elegant. Wonderful!
saxo042 (37596) 2014-01-22 7:26
An impressive room with impressive furniture. These do not look like a purchase from IKEA... Good colours and a very good perspective.
ikeharel (60317) 2014-01-22 8:27
Superb golden light dominating the indoor's shot in the palace, John.
Immaculate lavish walls and art details, the chandelier is outstanding in elements and its mirror view on far side.
Fine taken shot, impressive.
aleXundar (1256) 2014-01-22 8:56
And now, an interior shot! What a spectacular room and what a spectacular shot! The fine details of the wall design, the glowing chandelier and even the frame of the painting... so wonderfully captured. Great composition with the furniture and the mirror showing the length of the room. And most attractive is the color tone.
Thanks for sharing a truly 'Royal' shot.
With best regards,
bona (13181) 2014-01-22 10:43
I love inside photo of palaces and old houses. The design always attract me. you got a good light here. This chandelier is really pretty, it remember me the ones I saw at the Golden Hall in Colon Theater.
Corry (4508) 2014-01-22 11:34
Belle prise de vue de cette chambre magnifiquement décorée. Point de vue bien choisi. J'aime bien la couleur dorée que donne la lumière. Belle qualité d'image. Salutations.
TRB (13844) 2014-01-22 13:28
Perspective, la netteté, la lumière et l'intérieur de l'image avec une excellente photo.
PaulVDV (23409) 2014-01-22 14:02
Daar ben ik nog nooit binnen geweest.
Alle gouden tinten schitteren in het kunstlicht. Rijkelijke versieringen bovenaan de muren en aan het plafond.
Ik keek even in die spiegel en was beniewd of je niet tegelijk een zelfportret gemaakt had ... maar neen,
't is een dame.
Vele groeten, Paul
ourania (34357) 2014-01-22 14:10
I like very much how you have captured and rendered the style, details, colours and atmosphere of this room. Its style is quite simple and discreet, but the details and colours of the furniture, the painting and the decorative patterns are clearly...majestic. The clarity of this interior view is exquisite, artificial and natural lightings mingle so nicely. Another quality I like very much is the great sense of depth and space. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
Alco (7026) 2014-01-22 19:36
Very nice shot of that room.The angle is perfectly well chosen.The sharpness is very good despite the low speed used.Very nice colors.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
SWEETFREEDOM (23064) 2014-01-23 0:17
beautiful interior shot, good exposure and details.
tyro (21104) 2014-01-23 1:42
Yes, I remember your previous photographs from inside this beautiful Royal Palace.
You have managed the mixture of artifical light and daylight extremely well here as the colours appear very natural and true adding to the warmth of the wonderful décor in this sumptuously appointed room. Your composition is superb and I particularly like how we can see further details of the room, the chandelier and even another visitor reflected in the distant ornate mirror.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
yquem46 (38746) 2014-01-23 5:15
A top photography for the magazines !
Bravo, have a nice day
Graal (99088) 2014-01-23 5:42
beautiful room in palace here. Amazing details. I like the architecture and image (portrait) on the wall. Good informations and photo-work.
Have a nice day.
Royaldevon (31763) 2014-01-23 7:37
It is an interesting glimpse into the past to realise that people lived in such beautiful houses with such fine pieces of furniture. It's not surprising that lots of servants were necessary to maintain this standard of cleanliness!
You have captured this indoor shot with excellent clarity and with a fine sense of composition. The settee makes an interesting lead to the portrait and to the interior, whilst the table and chairs are strongly placed, linking nicely with the chandelier.
My warm regards,
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-23 8:26
una foto d'interni dalla nitidezza straordinaria e molto accurata anche nella composizione.
Ben scelto il punto di ripresa che aiuta a comprendere la magnificenza dell'edificio.
Uno scatto di alta qualità.
Ciao e buona serata
danos (88819) 2014-01-23 9:26

Another excellent interior photo from a palace, no less! The sharpness and lack of noise is remarkable.

Great interior shot, richly decorated chamber, excellent light management, perfect Classic composition
Miguel82 (25453) 2014-01-24 8:47
I never go inside of the royal palace of Brussels John, a simple and beautiful interior not so luxurious, like it, a value painting on the left, excellent report, thanks, see you!
carper (96) 2014-01-24 10:31
heel mooi gemaakt fraai interieur shot John.
mooi neergezet hoor.
mesutilgim (87272) 2014-01-24 10:34
Hello dear John,
This time something different in your gallery; a nice interios capture.
With perfect pov and ligth management.
Good sharpness and many interesting notes.
TFS and best regards
holmertz (43275) 2014-01-24 11:37
This is a very elegant room with lots of fine furniiture and a nice floor. You have handled the combination of natural and artificial light very well. maintaining what I feel to be the natural colours.
photoray (12968) 2014-01-24 12:41
From your Royal Palace image it is obvious that "royalty does have advantages". The crystal chandelier dominates the articulate interior with art work on high and even the ceiling.
Thanks for sharing,
Fis2 (87979) 2014-01-24 12:43
Beautiful interior picture with not much deformation, this is sometime a problem, but here excellent done.
Good colors and light.
I like it. TFS.
Buin (42354) 2014-01-25 2:18
What a splendour! You managed the difficult light here really skillfully and your photo transmits the atmosphere, the pomp, of this hall perfectly. Also the colour of the golden decorations is rendered wonderfully.
However, the "deformation" of the candelabrum - the tilted position - is a bit disturbing here.
Have a nice weekend!
Greetings from wet, hazy and cold Westphalia - but winter? Negative report!
chrislo (4155) 2014-01-25 6:56
Alweer een mooie interieurfoto van deze prachtige Koninklijke ruimte, waarin de tijd lijkt stil te staan. Je hebt een perfecte hoek gekozen om ons dit uitstekende decor te laten beleven, vanaf het ingelegde parket tot het cassetteplafond en de majestueuze kroonluchter. Wat hier de aandacht vestigt is het evenwicht tussen licht en kleur dat een rijke, verfijnde en luxe sfeer schept. Technisch gezien is het uiteraard uitstekend. Het licht is echt geweldig, de belichting zorgvuldig gebalanceerd en alle details zijn fijn genomen. Heel mooi gedaan.
Nog een fijn weekend verder.
clic (15574) 2014-01-25 13:07
Well, I presume this is the rich visitors-on-stand-by anteroom who were waiting for a private audience with Emperor Napoléon!
What stylish expensive decorations, hand-held-masterly captured, showed in this sumptuous cabinet!
UlfE (14641) 2014-01-26 0:29
Very nice to see the interor of the Royal castle. I have passed it many times but I have never been on the inside. You have taken a billant photo of it. Your light mangement was excellent. You really show how us how beautiful room is with its elegant funiture, chandelier, oil panting and gilded details in the celing and on the walls. TFS and have a nice Sunday!

Ciao John,, great view of fantastic interior, excellent exposure, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
Schnappilic (9690) 2014-01-26 11:32
A huge presentation of this room of Royal Palace. I like the two kind of light and very good sharpness in difficult conditions. Good frame! Congratulations!
adramad (39442) 2014-01-26 12:36
A great composition with this beautiful image inside one of the rooms of the palace, an elegant decoration and the high image quality enjoyed with each item.
Very good management of both the brightness and the sharpness.
The color is great, very well balanced.
I wish you a happy start to the week.
williewhistler (14995) 2014-01-26 12:37
you have handled the exposure of the interior ever so well, the intricate details of the room are beautifully sharp and very clear.
The rich colours are also well reproduced,it`s a fine photograph.
Lord_Of_Chaos (0) 2014-01-27 5:48
Hello dear John.
Like really your photos.
The quality and sharpness are excellent and the lighting.
Hello dear friend and all the best
eldancer1 (29990) 2014-01-27 7:32
Looking at those golden colors I don't have to see the title to know that this is royal palace. Such beautiful and ornate furnishing. Nicely captured with good details. WEll done, tfs.
jcpix (13724) 2014-01-27 15:23
Such exquisite detailing and elegance here, this must be quite a treat to see in person. Also impressive is the fact that this was taken hand held, it looks sharp and well defined. Although the wide angle does present some skewed lines in this case, it's completely understandable given the limited spacing options. It's just as beautiful no matter the perspective, and the mixture of artificial and natural light is so well balanced that all is forgiven. :) Not an easy task to take interior pictures with all of the variables, but you've managed anther terrific one. Thanks for taking us inside for a look around. Have a great day ahead.
mkamionka (31457) 2014-01-28 6:23
beautiful interior so elegantly decorated. I admire the high quality especially because it was handheld at the higher ISO value. I like perfectly straight perspective. Very well done!
Oumar (26) 2014-01-28 8:15
Sharp picture! Well cropped! Wonderful architecture! The luxury is well represented with the red and golden colors that stand out.

Your interior shots are always spectacular, well exposed, great colour and fine detail. This is no exception my friend, it's a beautiful capture.
ChrisJ (101718) 2014-03-15 2:18
Missed this one. A superb interior shot displaying the ornate and intricate decorations, with a fine diffused light and superb sharpness. The red sofa and plush chairs contrast well against the blue tinted white walls. The portrait on the wall is a good focal point. Tfs!
fritzi007 (7506) 2014-03-20 11:54
