Well, I promised a second photo of this beautiful looking Wilanow Palace in Warsaw Poland, so here it is.
We are now off to the side of the Palace, into one of the rose garden areas. There are a number of sculptures that you can kind of play around with in your composition, so i did just that.
Take a look in the WS for a couple more wide angle views too if you like.
I highly recommend visiting this Palace if you're traveling in Warsaw!
Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi Craig. In fact, we are neighbors today. No question, your photo is of course much more elegant and aesthetic. Our photos are real opposites. But everyone photographed what he finds in his surroundings.
I wish you a nice and relaxing weekend.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

really beautiful continuation.I like this photo,but also other two you added in WS are great(wide-angle lens paid off in both cases-the views are magnificent).At first I thought you did it in HDR-both the color saturation as well as the details reproduction are excellent.You did a great job here and were able to bring out the best out of this scene and the weather conditions.I like also the composition and the way you placed the angel in the frame.Well considered composition.
Have a nice weekend

Some of us are into sculptures today, but we're all very different. How nice that is. i'm not quite sure what to say about this angel. I think the building is nicer, but they go together quite well. You have balanced the photo very nicely so the angel seems to hold a protective hand above the palace. Lots of nice plants in between and superb light and sharpness.

Amazing view on the palace with an extremely beautiful sculpture of angel! Love it! Perfectly seen and composed view with great attention on details. Bravo!!

This is an overall elegant scene and composition. I like the way the angel on the right is reaching out. The garden and architecture are also very nice and colorful.
BTW, there was a dedication photo for you today. Check out the photos from Boston and you will find it. :-)

Hi Craig, what an unusual view from Wilanow! The angel on your photo seems so huge, it dominates all the view. It seems to protect the palace. I know so well Wilanow but have never noticed him. very interesting and beautiful. Excellent composition, I like it very much. Fantastic sharpness, the rose garden is so nicely presented. Warm regards

A splendid composition featuring this magnificent Baroque palace. The grey cloudy sky is especially attractive and enhances the beauty of the architecture. The statue of this angel makes a fine foreground that also blends well with the rest of the scenery. Amusing detail : it looks as if this angel was using its laurel wreath like a frisbee and was preparing to throw it to the the black statue opposite ! A well framed and composed shot.
Have a nice weekend.

Hi dear Craig
Another great postcard image! The usage of widefocus lens is the best choice to fit with this marvelous situation. Outstanding sharp and clear image as usual. Peaceful and tranquilzed atmosphere is so tasteful. Many thanks for you sharing and have a good day!

Hello Craig - I really like this composition, the angel leans towards the palace and the visual connection between the two is very clever. It seems to work on an emotional, implied level as well as compositionally. I am also impressed by the soft light falling across the angel, the detailing in the wings and robes is super. A fine composition and elegant piece of work. Have a good weekend. Rosemary

Tes vues plus rapprochées nous permettent de mieux admirer la beauté de ce palais aux typiques couleurs jaunes et blanches. Très bonne composition avec une belle utilisation de la statue.

Excellent shot of the palace and the statue of the angel.The composition is perfect with regard to framing and depth of field.The color of the palace in contrast to the sky has come out properly.The sharpness and light are perfect.Very well done, TFS.

The POV is just great; featuring it from the angle of the sculpture makes it much more interesting!

Wonderful composition.. I like the angel on the right, it seemed that she was going to fly to the other figure in front of the house.. well balanced image, beautiful colour. Personally, I would like to give a slightly space on the right and make the base of the angel vertical.

Now this is just a perfect composition. Everything in it works and balances well with each other. The palace with its pleasing colors, the beautiful gardens and the statue leading the eye on towards the palace.
have a good weekend

very nice place you did right to post some more picture, it deserved more. very nice contrast of colors and architecture.
mirosu (5507) 2012-10-29 23:05
A great use of light and colors. The deep depth of field is perfect. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the statue. The great light on the palace and the flower beds in the foreground also lends a lovely contrast to the scene. Well done.
