Everyone has heard about Ceausescu's Palace, about the size of the building- second in the world,but do you know all , absolutely all materials used are 100% ROMANIANS?
This is the only one thing which makes me proud, because there you can find the rare rose marble, expensive wooden essence and the huge carpets were made specially for this palace
That day , the House of the people was really crowded....
here is one of the principal halls, at main entrance

I understand the mixed feelings, as expressed in your note. Palaces in general are beautiful, but never fair. The presence of the crowd of people is a plus here, I think.

I wonder if I have seen interior pictures from this palace before. The staircase is an excellent location to show wide angle view of two floors. This also makes me think that all big architectural landsmarks have been terrible waste of money and effort during their time of construction.

Majestic palace very well framed, good sharpness and depth of field. good work!

I was here last year and no doubt it's an impressive place, in some ways. Not entirely tasteful, to my mind. Still, this is a fine picture from a very good POV, with two floors in one view and a man – in a typical Ceausescu cap! – coming towards us. Good light and good sharpness.
(I was, of course, on the huge balcony where the urban legend tells us that Michael Jackson greeted the crowds. Surely it was at the National stadium he said "Hello Budapest"?)

Hi Isabela, A great interior photo & a wonderful POV allowing for excellent symmetry, the light is very good & superb detail, TFS, kind regards Wilson.

Your note isn't exact, as the yellow plastic ribbons for queue barriers are made in China, not Romania... :-p))
Hey! This place is quite impressive... At first sight - quick, quick - I thought it was one of the passages at Manhattan's Grand Central station, which in fact, as nothing to do with this richly detailed palace.
Looking at the glass roof and colonnades, I can understand how the Conducator had a troubled personality cult, judging by the ostensible luxury and exuberance of this palace built in the 80's, while the people was craving in the streets.
A good shot, showing a glimpse of this orgy of marble.

Hello Isabela - This is an impressive POV that really shows the scale and grandeur of the palace very well. I like the way the frame is divided into two distinct yet related areas. The light management is good considering the huge variation between the upper and lower level of the building. Well done and TFS Rosemary

O poza reusita,foarte bine incadrata,culori perfecte.
Am fost si eu in Palatul Parlamentului si am ramas uimit din ce am vazut acolo,o arhitectura foarte frumoasa.
O zi buna

A clever photo that shows two levels of the building and the glass ceiling. Good sharpness and light balance.

Great image of a beautiful interior. The dark upper area and the brightly lit lower area adds interest, as well as being somewhat reverse of what we normally expect.
I also notice that people in Romania seem to love wearing black, or similarly dark color. Ceauşescu was a horrible man, but he apparently had great taste in architecture.

I like this kind of picture with levels and here you did a great job in framing the palace interior including the beautiful 'glass ceiling'. Exposure is also fine.
