Looking across the Viaducto from the Santa María la Real de La Almudena to the Basilica di San Fransisco El Granada and the multitude of roof tops beyond the cathedral.
There is so much to see and admire in the 'Almudena' Cathedral that one rarely climbs the high stairs to the roof and look beyond the narrow balustrade. This is the view I got and I would admit - it wasn't a surprise!

hello Arunava - A beautiful vista where the colours and details are rich and lovely. I do like the sky; softly washed colour like a watercolour painting. Warm regards Rosemary

I personally love these rooftop type of views, i will climb and climb them many times :)
You did so here with a sweet romantic light, cant beat it. The reds, greens, and hints of yellows work so well together. Good sense of depth too. I wish to see Spain in the near future.
Good quality photo

Madrid is not the city that would spring to mind when I think of the word skyline, but you prove here perfectly the reason why i should. the dome of the cathedral looks beautiful breaking the sky like this, and the colors of the buidlings are very attractive, especially the red roofs (i love red on blue). Beautiful view, and great note too. Cheers.

A splendid panorama over the city of Madrid. Captured under a good light and making good use of the Basilica as a focal point. I like the lighting and contrasting tones.

Spectacular cityscape it is!
The colors, clarity and composition --- with such a beautiful skyline and the greens at the bottom ... superb.

A nice view of this huge and in many ways impressive city. The colours are good but there is a slight tilt that you could have adjusted.

Stunnng city skyline with everything seems to work your way with the imposing domes indeed hard to ignore and brilliant light are lively contributing a great deal. A well thought out shot that combines simplicity and colours really well. I have only one minor critique; since the dome is the central subject, the compo shot would look better if your subject is a little to one side by changing the viewpoint. That's my sincere opinion, nevertheless its a nice shot and tfs

Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
