I take a photo here - A photographer colleague before the Museum of Fine Arts (Just a Lucien Hervé photo exhibition visible in the Museum).
The Museum of Fine Arts (Hungarian: Szépművészeti Múzeum) is a museum in Heroes' Square, Budapest, Hungary, facing the Palace of Art.
The millenary session of the Hungarian Parliament in 1896 passed a law whereby art collections previously held in different institutions were to be unified and placed in the newly-established Museum of Fine Arts.
On the basis of a competitive tender, Albert Schickedanz and Fülöp Herzog were commissioned to design and construct the building, which opened in 1906. The gallery displaying original paintings was placed in the first floor halls of the neo-classical building; however, only plaster casts were available to illustrate a complete history of European sculpture. It was for these life-size copy sculptures that the Doric, Ionic, Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque halls on the ground floor were designed, imitating the styles of individual periods of art history. However, as the number of original works increased, so the plaster sculptures were forced out of the building (the only one remaining, a copy of the group in the pediment of the temple of Zeus at Olympia, can be seen on the tympanum above the Museum’s main entrance), and the ground floor galleries are now also used to display original works of art. On the ground floor are the exhibitions of the Classical Antiquities and of 19th century paintings and sculptures; the Renaissance hall, where in addition to Renaissance frescoes and fountains items from the Sculpture Collection may be seen; the Prints and Drawings Gallery with temporary exhibitions; and the Marble and Baroque halls.
Due to the continuous renovation work on the building, individual permanent exhibitions of the Old Masters’ Gallery may temporarily be moved. (Source: vendégváró)

Je te souhaite une bonne journée.

A nice shot of this photographer taking the shot of the facade of the museum. It is a well balanced composition with great quality and sharpness.

Always interesting to watch fellow photographers at work and perhaps get some tips A well framed symmetrical composition with good colours and sharpness.

Le photographe photographié est un thème qui revient souvent mais dont on ne se lasse jamais.Ici, je ne comprends pas trop le trépied, mais il doit savoir ce qu'il fait.

Hi George, Nice vertical shot, beautifully composed, very pleasant colors, really liked your colleague in the foreground working silently with his camera while the people bustle around in the shot beyond.

This is a nice idea to give us the perspective of another photographer. The vertical format is nice emphasizing the height of the building. The symmetrical composition is very nice here.
