View of the parliament building in Budapest, Hungary.
The photo is taken from the other side of the Danube river, at the blue hour, just a couple of minutes after the lights illuminating the building were turned on.
This is the second largest parliament building in Europe and it was constructed between 1885 and 1896, specifically designed for its final use. According to Wikipedia, "About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used.".

Wonderfully pleasing blue hour shot of this impressive parliament building in Budapest. The light, the clarity and the colors are sublime. Only the passing boat on the Danube has created a little bit disturbing element here, but here I am hair splitting.
have a great day

Beautiful building (finally without scaffoldings!) and fantastic photo to show it in all its glory... In my opinion the movement of the boats is a very nice touch... Great!
