Vajdahunyad Castle (Hungarian: Vajdahunyad vára) is a castle in the City Park of Budapest, Hungary. It was built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition which celebrated the 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 896. The castle was designed by Ignác Alpár to feature copies of several landmark buildings from different parts the Kingdom of Hungary, especially the Hunyad Castle in Transylvania (now in Romania). As the castle contains parts of buildings from various time periods, it displays different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum.

Bonsoir, cher ami Ovidiu,
Eh oui ! il faut toujours qu'il y ait un véhicule dans le paysage !
Ce n'est pas grave, car l'architecture de l'ensemble demeure majestueux.
De plus, les effets d'ombre et de lumière sont bien répartis.

Credit your work Ovidiu, your architectural shot is getting better and better, the more I look at it and this is no exception. The exposure control is so refined and nothing appears to be over-exposed or under-exposed even there's some highlights retained in shadowed areas. A fine composition which leads the eye through to the prominence in some nice natural colors and delicate detail which together hold the focus strongly. A well thoughout shot and so much delicacy to absorb, My congrats.

Beautiful building, and a perfect choice of frame layout. I like the long path leading up to it with its shadows and teh colour of the building is very nice indeed. Fine building in a magical city.
All the best

you have controlled the logical distortion of vertical lines in this efficient shot with a wide angle lens.
The elegant architecture of this castle is caught-well in a good framing, and you have managed skillfully the light and the colors, for to obtain a beautiful composition.

I love the welcoming, nearly sucking look of this building. the layers that lead you to the eye are constructed with such percision and the detail is amazing.
Have a nice evening,

Beautiful and attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, black & white borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent and really pleased me with just one "but": maybe a bit less of that pavement would be better!
TFS - congrats,
