Here is a picture of the Grand Foyer of the Opera Garnier in Paris.
The interior consists of interweaving corridors, stairwells, alcoves and landings allowing the movement of large numbers of people and space for socializing during intermission. Rich with velvet, gold leaf, and cherubim and nymphs, the interior is characteristic of Baroque sumptuousness.

Très impressionnant foyer. Toutes ces dorures illuminent l'image qui est d'une parfaite netteté. J'aime voir les personnages dans l'image qui aident à relativiser cette immense espace.

it is often very difficult to properly capture the grandeur of places like this, but you have done it perfectly, the gold and glitter is literally overwhelming, especially since you have included some people to illustrate the scale. well seen and presented, I like the photo a lot.
