Casa Batlló, built between 1904 and 1906 in the heart of the city of Barcelona, is the most emblematic work of the brilliant Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi.
Gaudí gave Casa Batlló a facade that is original, fantastical and full of imagination - with a new composition of stone and glass. He ordered the external walls to be redesigned to give them a wavy shape, which was then plastered with lime mortar and covered with a mosaic of fragments of coloured glass and ceramic discs.
As a whole, the facade is a joyful and allegorical representation, full of organic elements and colours and charged with symbolism, a wonderful spectacle in the city which inspires the most sublime sentiments in all those who gaze upon it.
The house is a dialogue between light and colour.

This is very attractive and reflects your love of contemporary art. I like the way you have composed the shot, with the coloured glass curving sinuously across the frame.
The negative space is just as important as the positive.
My warm regards,

in this composition you offer us a beautiful detail of the interior of the Casa Batlló, by means of this difficult shot on the stained-glass window, in which you have created a beautiful dialog between the light, the colors and the darkness.
The graphical reached effect is fantastic.
An excellent work.
Happy New Year!!

This is a well composed and sharp image, with great colors. All the details of Gaudi's glasswork can be seen. You have done justice to Gaudi's creation.
