The Hellenic Parliament (Greek: Βουλή των Ελλήνων; Parliament of the Hellenes; transliterated Vouli ton Ellinon), is the Parliament of Greece, located in the Parliament House (Old Royal Palace), overlooking Syntagma Square in Athens, Greece. The Parliament is the supreme democratic institution that represents the citizens through an elected body of Members of Parliament (MPs).
It is a unicameral legislature of 300 members, elected for a four-year term. During 1844–63 and 1927–35 the parliament was bicameral with an upper house, the Senate, and a lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, which retained the name Vouli. Several important Greek statesmen have served as Speakers of the Hellenic Parliament.

The low POV including the steep steps underscores the impressive image of the parliament. The person walking up the steps gives another strong accent to the foreground and also gives the view a fine depth. The conversion to B&W is very well done with a fine greyscale.

An impressive and very unique vision of the parliament building, I really like this. The black and white treatment suits it very well indeed, and its a great idea to include the woman walking up the steps to the building. A great result!
All the best

Dans ce format image notre regard est bien capté par cette personne montant cet escalier.Le b&W donne une touche artistique à cette réalisation.

C'est une présentation sobre et artistique de ces grandes marches. Le noir et blanc est parfait pour ce genre de composition, et met bien en valeur le personnage sur ce grand escalier.

This is a beautifully clean and simple composition, and presented in gorgeous monochrome, allowing us to appreciate tone and texture and the subtle nuances of the cloudy sky. The figure is vital!

This POV that shows the parliament right on top of the stairs being climbed by a citizen emphasizes its role in daily life. Very nicely done.

J'ai d'abord l'impression que la dame monte l'escalier d'un pas décidé pour aller régler quelque litige personnel au parlement qui se montre tout petit, face à la colère anticipée de la plaignante!!

What a strong composition to accentuate the importance of the main subject! The steps and the human figure moving towards it, guide the viewer straight to the building in question. And yes, no color was required for this outstanding composition. A great frame.
With best regards,
