Hi dear TE friends
Place: Monaco-Ville – Monaco
Theme: (Trip) Charms of Europe (XVI)
The Prince's Palace of Monaco is the official residence of the Prince of Monaco.
Built in 1191 as a Genoese fortress, during its long and often dramatic history it has been bombarded and besieged by many foreign powers. Since the end of the 13th century, it has been the stronghold and home of the Grimaldi family who first captured it in 1297.
The Grimaldi ruled the area first as feudal lords, and from the 17th century as sovereign princes, but their power was often derived from fragile agreements with their larger and stronger neighbors.
I visited Monaco, when he came to Nice. It is a beautiful place and is very rich. I found that it wasn't as magical as I had imagined, but still quite pretty. There were many shiny cars and large yachts, driven generally by older men who looked as though they spend more money in one day than my entire family will spend in a lifetime.
I hope you like it, a big hug to all the friends of the TE

how nice yellow -and blue- here in this picture!Very well saturated.Excellent depth given by the strip delimited by ropes and notable details.Monaco must to be visited in its most hidden parts to appreciate it in full, leaving aside the false sirens of luxury.In the old town centre the glimpses are many and very picturesque.There the atmosphere of my land, Liguria, is perceptible.

I had never seen this palace before...
the yellow colour makes it stand out well against the blue sky creating a very appealing chromatic contrast and the path in the centre gives a fine perspective.
Good that you could photograph it free of people.
A lively postcard of this famous place.

Nunca tinha visto uma foto desse Palácio antes!
Não me parece muito suntuoso, ao menos por fora!
A foto está linda, com destaque para o controle de luz, as cores, o formato horizontal e a composição!
Parabéns, abraços e até logo,

I can honestly not say that I find this castle beautiful but your picture certainly is.
The strong light and the yellow colour gives it a Mediterranean impression (logically for Monaco) and creates an interesting strong contrast with the blue sky.
You POV is good with the road leading to the entrance and with the rocky hills behind the palace.
The many visitors add life to the picture.
Best regards, Paul

The outstanding yellow colour really grabs the eye here!
Good contrast with the blue sky too, and the walkway makes a great lead to the gate...
A well balanced composition, good details!
abmdsudi (50440) 2011-06-05 21:13
This must a great place to wonder about, such a classic place well depicted and you have captured a character and charm of this sight. Well exposed and impressive composition, great depth and this makes a very interesting capture in particular love all those detail textures of the palace in rich color. The path guides the eyes through to the main entrace. The main subject is a great draw to the eyes and stunningly contrast to blue sky. Human presence add extra interests, life and scale ref as well Great shot and excellent narratives. Great effort, well done and Congrats.

se si compongono delle cartoline si può cadere nel banale, ma le tue immagini questo non lo sono affatto perché sono sempre ben composte ed hanno colori eccezionali. bellissimo il contrasto tra il giallo dell'architettura ed il cielo blu.
Un caro abbraccio.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-06-07 2:24

jolie carte postale aux couleurs bien vivantes et fortes. Des lumières excellentes un ciel tellement nuancé. Le POV bien choisi dans le prolongement de ce chemin rouge.
C'est un travail net et soigné.

beautiful capture, the only thing i hate about your picture is that i never been in Monaco :))
all the best!
ikeharel (67153) 2011-06-08 2:04
3 different tones of yellow on the palace, Filipe, standing out the surroundings in a good contrast.
The tourist flocking from all side addind a dynamism to image, lovely taken.
JCG (35129) 2011-06-09 22:07
I visited with my mother, the city of Monaco, in 1988... And in August !!! It was hellish, not very good memories, lots of tourists, but I remember this famous square and the palace. A beautiful shot here, with good depth of image and a nice range of colors and contrasts. I really like the sharpness of the image as well. Filipe well done.
With all my friendships and a very good day
fabianoleite (10460) 2011-06-11 8:23
Gostei da arquitetura desse prédio amarelo, que ficou muito bem enquadrado. A montanha atrás ajuda bem na composição e na profundidade da foto. Bom trabalho, parabéns!
Nard (6972) 2011-06-12 3:18

Many thanks for your visit, Filipe.
Nobody can miss this elegant building, while in Monaco!
Appears magnificent here, despite its unusual flashing color, so crowned of glorious skies.
And I remark somebody unroll the red carpet for my visit!!
subhendu_bagchi (26083) 2011-06-14 22:32
a beautiful palace and you presented it nicely with nice POV and with fine depth. The path nicely brought our eyes to the palace. Beautiful sky to assist this excellent composition. Tfs.
mkamionka (34581) 2011-06-15 2:49
beautiful postcard. Monaco is so famous yet I don't remember seeing this wonderful palace before. Surely the excellet summer light makes it look very colorful and shiny and eye catching.
Great well saturated colors. Nice composition with the red carpet like path in the center making a nice intro to the main entrance.
Very well done,
shevchenko (19444) 2011-06-21 0:45

Fantastica composicion con este bonito palacio y su mezcla de estilos, el bonito colorido del edificio junto con el bello azul del cielo potencia mucho la fuerza de esta imagen, un magnifico POV con una adecuada gestion de la luz y del color.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Muy buena perspectiva del palacio, con una luz extraordinaria y un gran contraste de colores.
Muy buena definición y dinamismo.
Buen fin de semana!
maloutim (9639) 2011-07-17 20:16
Good morning Filipe,
I didn't realise the Palace of Monaco had such a bright colour ! It looks quite original with its more modern part making a good contrast with the medieval building and the rugged panorama of the "Rocher" behind .
Good POV with the drive leading the eye to the Palace and great sharpness.
Interesting introduction to the event that was to take place a month later.
Worthy note too about the inhabitants of Monte-Carlo. Rather sickening really.
Thanks for sharing.
kordinator (20453) 2011-07-20 2:20
Very attractive composition with perfect light managment
Vonderful architectural details

A spectacular photo of this colorful palace. I like the yellow color.Nice view of the mountain in the back. Nice walkway leading to the entrance door. Well composed and framed.
pierrefonds (63290) 2011-07-21 7:45
The path is leading my eyes toward the palace which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the architecture of the palace. The morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
Angshu (56748) 2011-07-22 5:54
Very attractive palace & castle. The warm lemon tone contrasts well with the blue sky & you've used the path well for lead-in. Good shot...picture postcard perfect!

josepmarin (58325) 2011-08-17 11:55
espero que tus vacaciones hayan sido muy agradables. ¡Bienvenido de nuevo aquí!
Mientras no presentas nuevas fotos me he fijado en ésta, por su buena luz y el bonito color de la elegante arquitectura del palacio, que se destaca sobre un cielo azul muy bien decorado por algunas nubes.
El encuadre es bueno y la composición está muy bien equilibrada gráficamente.
Un bello trabajo, amigo.
francio64 (39864) 2011-09-01 13:17
ottimo punto di osservazione con una buona profondità data dal vialetto in FG.
Luce ben gestita e resa cromatica ottima.
Bella l'architettura dell'edificio.

the view of the Prince's Palace of Monaco is very well presented with the corridor to creates depth in the image.The Brilliant light enhance the vivid colours of the image.The contrast of the colours is excellent.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-12-04 11:14
This is an interesting image as usual in your gallery. I like the different colours used to finish the group of buildings. The colours of the image are stunningly effective. A very nice POV also, I have a feeling that I have been invited to the prince's residence. The inclusion of the immediate surroundings is also a very welcoming part of the image. The blue sky and the yellow palace, how much more can any building be so strikingly presented? You have it all in one photo.
With my best regards,
Have a very nice evening, Filipe
