The Atheneum in Bucharest
I was just looking into Isabels photo from the inside of the Atheneum in Bucharest and was reminded that I had this outside variant from my visit to the same place last year.
We had a splendid day in Bucharest which included the passing of this fine building, the Atheneum:
Inaugurated on February 26, 1888, creation of the French architect Albert Galleron. The 8 ionic columns of the main entrance have similar proportions as Acropole 's Erechteion and the interior has four stairways made from Carara marble. Very beautiful and original.

the deep blue sky offer a great contrast against the facade of the Atheneum; contrast that is even more enhanced by the green of the grass. The central compo works well, quality is good throughout with well visible details.
Thanks for sharing it.

A beautiful architecture shot against a wonderful polarised sky. Lovely colour and contrast, with the green grass making a pleasing change of tone from the white and blue. Good sharpness and a centrally placed building that works well in that position.

Really nice colours, deeepness, sharpness. One of the best faces of Bucharest with the charme of the in-de-siecle. Many thanks for sharing,

The deep blue sky forms a nice backdrop for the building. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF. The centered composition works well here yielding nice balance. The inclusion of the gardens in the foreground adds nice color and texture to the shot.

Un monument impressionnant ! J'aime bien la toiture et la façon dont la lumière tombe dessus ! Cela fait parfaitement ressortir les détails de ce dôme !
L'entrée monumentale est très belle et bien présenter ! La zone d'ombre de gauche dérange un peu !

Majestuous architecture, nicely enhanced by this deeply blue sky. I like the natural frame provided by the vegetation.

the similarity between Erecthteion and Atheneum is great! The architecture is really amazing! The polarized blue of the sky is so beautiful and the definition of the details is fine. Thank you for sharing and the informative note.

Excellent details and rich colours!
Point of view results in this fine classical composition, where the fine piece of architecture is well framed by the evergreens...
Lovely sky in this attractive deep blue!
