The Passage of the Bourse in Charleroi was built between 1890 and 1893 by the architect Edmond Legraive.
Witness of a prosperous time for the city of Charleroi, the district that surrounds it is now full failed.
The passage is now protected and must be kept in state while many commercial spaces are closed.

amazing picture. I would probably cropped a bit away from the top becuase the bend in the lower part is so eye catching? Nevetheless great sharpness and totally mindblowing.

Very very interesting photo. It feels like I am stuck in a tube.
The lines are interesting. I wonder what it would look like as a square photo ?

Beautiful composition and balanced exposure. This is difficult shot but you have executed really well. :)

Wonderful architecture photograph! I think what makes a huge impact is the twist to the left at the depths of the scene.
Beautiful long lines and illumination too.

Très bonne photo de ce Passage de la Bourse. Très bonne maîtrise de l'exposition, toujours délicate dans ces lieux, et très bonne perspective sur la verrière et son original "virage".

the construcion of this roof is amazing and certainly a superb subject for abstract photography.I like your upward perspective,which enhances well the details of the roof as well as the architectural details of the facade.
Creative and really successful approach to the subject!
Have a good day

This elegant and historic interior image makes me giddy when scrolling up and down Patrick! The illusion of movement can be felt with a really hypnotic effect full of powerful strong lines and contrasting colors. Lovely shot, Congrats

An interesting photo of this interior. I like the perspective and repeating patterns. The colours are good and I like the brown shades in some of the glass. A graphic shot with immediate visual impact.
Kind Regards, Ann

I am attracted to both the modern baroque like architecture and your lengthy vertical view emphasizing the curved arch glass ceiling.
PS: With my Martinelli Ranch posting I was forced into low contrast by Nature's approaching storm, covering the sun with a thick cloud layer. I over-exposed a bit to allow more light.

En scrollant l'image le mouvement donne un certain vertige, c'est très intéressant, une prise de vue risquée pour les cervicales
