Hello friends and colleagues, today I present a view of the facade of the City of Cadiz on a nice spring day, I hope you like it, then some interesting letters on the building.
The current City of Cadiz was built in 1799 on the bases and location of previous Town Hall and is the result of two stages: first, neoclassical, initiated in 1799 by Torcuato Benjumeda, and a second for the Elizabethan style of Garcia Poplar in 1861 and would affect the interiors.
"The face that presents the main facade of the Town Hall is the result of two major reforms, a neoclassical work and other Elizabethan Benjumeda conducted Manuel García del Alamo in 1861." Its composition is based on a large central body, composed of four Ionic columns, with garlands between scrolls and Attic base. The basement will cushion and side bodies decorated with pilasters of the same order of two rows flanking veins. On the horizontal between pairs of overalls and presents rampant garlands discs reproduce reliefs reasons Phoenician coins. Over the central body opens a fronton whose apex line exceeds sill. In the center tower rises three bodies, first square, with a vain on every front. A balustrade with shots transit serves the second octagonal. Balustrade tops together with eight other columns supporting a small hemispherical dome.

I know this square in the center of Cádiz.
This is absolutely a splendid picture of it. Excellent sharpness, luminosity, colours!
From on the thumbnail I saw already that the sky behind the tower looks so beautiful.
I also like the shadow of the palmleaves on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

tutti i colori dell'Andalusia concentrati in una magnifica piazza.
Splendida nitidezza , bel punto di ripresa e soggetto di grande effetto.
Un'altra eccellente proposta dall'Andalusia.
Ciao e buona serata

This is a very nice présentation of the town hall with it's wonderful architecture. Your POV gives a good perspective and the light gives very good colors and sharpness. I like the inclision of the lampost.

Une bâtiment imposant et d'une architecture riche en détails. Belle lumière sur le haut de la façade.

i'm a big fan of these tilted architectural scenes, they add something that our natural eye just doesn't get to see.
lovely colors overall, and lovely architecture.

Very beautiful postcard from that square. I like the architecture and the composition. Well taken.
Have a great day.

Cadiz seems to have a multitude of interesting buildings to capture. I really love those large plant containers, cascading with colourful flowers.
The tree shadow makes an interesting lead into the square, where the buildings are pin sharp and the presence of the figures both animates and gives a sense of scale.
Have a lovely day,

A fine capture of this impressive City Hall built along classical lines. I like the point of view, which shows the façade to such good effect and sets the building in context. The image is well lit and has good colours and sharpness.

This is a very fine square with impressive buildings. The very nicely saturated colours contribute a lot to the general beauty of the view.

The more I see of this wonderful icy the more I want to visit there. You have taken this shot from a good angle showing the wonderful facade of the town hall and the adjacent building. The little square outside is delightful with the palm trees and coloured bushes along with the beautiful lamps. Nice lighting and colours,splendid presentation.

C'est le genre de photos que je recherche lors de mes voyages. Cela aide beaucoup lorsque le ciel coopère d'aussi belle facon, que la lumière est magique et que le bâtiment est aussi photogénique.

Elizabethan Neo Classical! It seems every week I discover new designs of architecture here on TE. This has created a beautiful result, its a very impressive building, and especially so that you have composed the scene so well. The burst of color from those huge flower pots make a very interesting addition too.
Thanks as always

Muy buena captura con gran angulo para presentar este edificio y la plaza con bandera y flores en contraste con un espectacular cielo azul
Me gusta la distorsion dada por el lente, da personalidad a la captura,GPC
Te deseo una muy buena semana desde Argentina

This certainly has the feeling of a delightful Spring day indeed, the abundance of bright blue skies with a trace of high clouds fill the scene with warmth and an air of casual enjoyment.
An architecturally striking town hall, this is beautiful! A good angle taken to show its design and prominence in the square. Sharp, detailed and well arranged for best exposure all around. Very well done!
yquem46 (38688) 2013-11-28 10:02
une image d'excellente qualité, travaillée avec soin
Belle lumière et couleurs franches et nettes, sans excès
Bien composé, même si personnellement j'aurais enlevé les branches tout en haut à gauche et au milieu à droite
Bravo pour ce beau travail, bonne soirée
serp2000 (39604) 2013-11-28 11:28
I am not sure, but this building seems so familiar to me. Could I see this place on the TE before? Anyway, excellent postcard from Cadiz, good choice of the point of view, perfect quality!
All the best wishes,

Que bonita es esta plaza, y en esta esplendida imagen el Ayuntamiento luce con todo su belleza en este magnifico edificio, un precioso dia muy luminoso con un bonito azul en el cielo, que es un gran bonus para la composicion, los colores estan geniales.
Magnifica nitidez, para disfrutar con los detalles.
Que pases una buena noche.
Un abrazo amigo mio y que tengas una buena semana, por aqui seguimos con sol, pero tambien con mucho frio.

A richly saturated blue sky with punchy light contrasts and superb sharpness and density levels. Well composed with excellent control over perspective. The verticals have been well positioned in the centre leaving the sides to fall where they will. Tfs!
