A view on the 19th century built (1884), Prussian architecture style, of the Palais du-Rhin in Strasbourg. Located on the western-edge of the perfect circle of Place de-la-République, see it on the map: 48.5875, 7.7531 .
A short walk from Quai Schoepflin, and a northward stroll from the square to the Contades-Parc, along the impressive buildings on the wide boulevards.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Très belle présentation du Palais de Strasbourg. L'architecture typique du dix-neuvième siècle est fort bien mise en relief et ressort joliment avec cet environnement végétal d'un magnifique vert.

You're capturing well this garden/building by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the elegant architecture with Prussian style in 19th century and courtyard often taken care of in front of it. It keeps a good symmetry.

Hello dear Ike,
You've utilised here a perfect central pov when capturing it.
The dim, soft light allows the viewer to see every single detail.
TFS and have a nice weekend

An interesting architectural study this taken with a great symmetry of the composition. Like the strong saturation of the green parts which gave a nice contrast to the building and cloudy sky. Well done!

Fine view through the parkway in varying greens towards the classical and ornate Palais du-Rhin. The low level light helps focus on the details and textures, avoiding the glare of sun.

un altro pezzo di Alsazia, ben presentato, nonostante il cielo non fosse al top.
La presenza delle persone ci offre uno spaccato della vita quotidiana, oltre che a mostrarci le dimensioni.

The distance between the statue and the palace is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the palace. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Nine view on this palace, good frame quality
To bring more details on the sky, I try to use a grad grey filter on my lenses or making an exposure braketing

Bonne précision dans le cadrage mettant le château au centre de l'image, cela fonctionne bien ici, avec les arbres sur les côtés et les parterres vertes sur l'avant plan, belle présentation

This Palace is much less photographed from Strasbourg but also worth seeing. Nice symmetrical composition. I also made a stroll there.

this is an excellent presentation of an elegant and important building. You have composed and framed this picture very effectively, the balance of your composition matches the symmetry of the architecture and the landscape. The green tones are deep and attractive, the building's colours are impressively well defined. I also like the presence of the two people on the left and appreciate the effect of the shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A super photo of this gorgeous Palais du -Rhin in Strasbourg.
Quite a history, splendid Pov, over the manicured gardens.
Have a pleasant Sunday.

A very elegant building (palace?) from Strasbourg taken from a good POV with excellent symmetry. I like the flower beds arranged like an arrow pointing to it.
adramad (50038) 2014-04-29 7:40
Certainly, splendid and elegant facade of this building very well captured with trees on both sides of the image and the beautiful garden in the foreground.
A colorful splendid, which enhances the beauty of the image.
Very well managed lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
I wish you a good day.
All the best.
macjake (73063) 2014-04-29 13:58
this reminds me of the type of Capitol buildings that our dear TE friend Andrew would show and present to us.
this would be right up his alley.
Personally I'm not a fan of white sky photos, but the more i view them the more i appreciate them too.
looks fine this way, and the greenery provides a fine supportive covering.
enjoy your day
nikkitta (17068) 2014-04-30 11:26
Just comment a post from Silvio and here are yours about this awesome city
Well chosen POV to present the palais with the gardens at the front and the palace emerging at the back from the vegetation with good contrast
Like to see people visiting the gardens and also the hanging french flags
Miguel82 (27752) 2014-05-12 19:18
You select a perfect pov to capture that picture Ike, the park is well maintained : beautiful green spaces and high trees, a brillant architecture, regards
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-05-15 2:16
I have never been to this castle while visiting Strasbourg. Shame because from what I can see it is lovely architecture. I like it photographed this way when the building seems to emerge from the surrounding it trees and bushes. The pretty lawn create good focal point in the foreground and symmetrical composition works very well in here.
Nice colors and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
fotka (4877) 2014-05-20 5:17
The photo has classic composition with attractive architecture style. I like the trees on both side to fill in the picture. With the cloudy sky quality of photo is great.
jmdias (69340) 2014-06-15 7:27

swapankumarroy (2849) 2014-08-29 7:19
Very nice composition of famous architecture partly covered with lush green, well color control specially green is more vivid in this frame. Good contrast and well sharped image.

nice the view of the Palais du-Rhin in Strasbourg with the beautiful garden in front of it to adds depth and perspective in the image.The vivid colours enhance the beauty and the clarity of the image even more.
Royaldevon (43985) 2016-01-29 12:53
I don't think that this palace has been posted very often!
Neither do I remember seeing it when I was in Strasbourg!
You have composed the photograph well, the symmetrical format perfectly matching the regularity of the architectural style. The neatly manicured garden and the marble statue, make a lovely prelude to the palace.
The figures add scale and human interest
Have a great w/e,
