Interior shot of the Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona.I must say the high admission fee was definitely worth to pay as the Concert Hall is truly wonderful.
Some facts found on wikipedia.org:
The Palau de la Música Catalana is a concert hall in Barcelona.Designed in the Catalan modernista style by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, it was built between 1905 and 1908 for the Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891.The Palau won the architect an award from the Barcelona City Council in 1909, given to the best building built during the previous year.
The design of the Palau is typical of Catalan modernism in that curves predominate over straight lines, dynamic shapes are preferred over static forms, and rich decoration that emphasizes floral and other organic motifs is used extensively.

A most impressive Music hall, an interior with exquisite style, and you had chosen a fine POV from the higher level.
Lavishly in gold and red-velvet, and organ on far wall, sculpture and paintings decorating.
All well collected, mild HDR enhanced the tones.
A great photojob done. Cheers.

You've certainly looked for the best POV and you present us this wonderful interior taken from a good angle.
What a rich decoration! And so beautiful and colourful!
Well detailed and well balanced picture.
I've visited Barcelona and have neglected to visit this Palau de la Musica Catalana. Shame on me!
Best regards, Paul

avevo visto dei bellissimi particolari di questo luogo, ma è la prima volta che vedo tutto l'insieme, fantastico.
Ottima esposizione, il salone gode di bellissime opere artistiche e sono tutte molto dettagliate.

the point of view and composition you selected for this presentation are excellent. It's amazing how comprehensive and elegant your composition is, how absorbing the sense of depth and how good the definition. There's a fine range of tones that vivify the marvelous interior and add to its special mood and character. I was so engrossed in studying the architecture and decoration that I was surprised when I ran into the people. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

The colours and detail here are quite striking Krzysztof. A wonderfully decorative interior with much to admire and discover. Looking at your exif data this must have been hand held but your technique and PP work has rendered the image clean and clear.

What a place :) I imagine when you saw this, it seemed any entrance fee was worth it to view this. The tones and colors of this place are amazing, the deep reds and oranges of the main stage and decorations, while up above the almost Tiffany style glass roof brings in colder colors to contrast with the warmth below, and brings them in beautifully in the most intricate detail. You really chose a perfect view of this to take in so much in one scene.
Thanks as always, great to see you post!
Best wishes from Ireland

Wow, a work of art on every level my friend...this is superb! Not only is the composition impressive, but the depth and dimension you've created from this arrangement goes to show a keen eye to render maximum effectiveness from what fits in the frame. And then there's the richness of color and the clarity within...it's almost like a rustic rainbow. :) You've taken the elegant nature of this concert hall up a notch, virtually into the absurd...and I say that as complimentary, this is outstanding work! Your postings here may not be as frequent these days, but you sure come strong when there's a new one. Great shot, really comprehensive! Enjoy getting back to the full grind. lol Take it easy.
Cheers from the heat filled desert,

Widze, ze wybrales sie znowu do Barcelony. Swietna okazja, zeby poznac to miasto lepiej i widze, ze dobrze wykorzystales czas. :-)
Zdjecie super,ladne kolory i swietna kompozycja.

Fantastyczne wnętrze. I jak znakomicie skadrowałeś, że widac całośc tego owalnego pomieszczenia. Super prezentacja: wszystkie elementy pierwsza klasa. Ta lampa na górze robi wrażenie. I wyobrażam sobie, jakie to przezycie tam byc w czasie koncertu. Koniecznie muszę sie wybrac do Barcelony. Poza Gaudim kuszą mnie tam oczywiscie Trekersi :).

A striking indoor shot this. You have chosen a perfect angle to show us this fine architecture. Wonderful details, and that ceiling is well worth a close-up - did you get that as well? Excellent sharpness and superb colours. Beautiful:) Thanks.
Have a nice evening.
tenretin (2282) 2014-06-08 11:39
How are you after all this time?
Visibly ballad Spain ... beautiful room that you were able to image with application.
The note is interesting.
mjw364 (6998) 2014-06-09 6:25
As you say the high admission fee is well worth it - it is an amazing place - I knew you would like it! You have given this image and warmth that adds atmosphere to the shot and it feels as the light might just before an evening performance is about to begin. So many things to photograph in this building it is so hard to know where to start and you have so little time when you are being shown around too!
TFS - hope you are well and not working too hard! I just heard from Juan - he is sending me shots of Palma.
chrislo (4151) 2014-06-09 13:02
What an amazing and splendid place ! This palace is really a piece of artwork in its own right. You have produced here a wonderful picture with incredible details and sharpness and also managed the light extremely well, considering you didn't use any tripod. The interplay of natural and artificial light is just superb and lends it an eye catching appeal. The whole picture is a symphony of vibrant and magnificent colours. A great artistic result !
macjake (52076) 2014-06-14 17:32
great to be back on TE, and also to check out your shots that i missed.
as you say, this is a wicked subject! I'll have to remember this one when i make it to Barcelona some day.
Too bad you didn't have a super wide angle lens eh! hahaha
but seriously, this one looks awesome. especially the colors, and the open feel of it.
its a winner in my books!
see you around
jhm (135120) 2014-06-21 1:07
This is one of the most beautiful interior pictures on TE, as well light as colours.
What a lovely music temple.
Excellent perspective and depth picture.
Colours and subject make these very attractive.
Excellent panorama, nice captured and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

It really looks like a palace and I believe it must be really worth to see a concert in such place. The decoration is magnificent, with wonderful details from the ground floor to the ceiling. Very good pov and you managed light very well.
swapankumarroy (623) 2014-08-12 8:35
