la foule sur glace apporte une touche vivante et dynamique à cette belle architecture.
C'est bien composé.
Un bon dimanche

excellent use of the vertical frame, superb sense of depth and perspective and perfect sharpness make this composition very interesting and appealing. I like very much the combination of an architectural presentation with a delightful daily life scene. The sense of movement and the peoples' naturalness are lovely. The way you've captured the variations in lighting, the details and colours is great. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Very interesting shot of this museum with a great architecture. The place was crowded and very cold but the people seems to be very happy.

This picture really conveys the feeling of being in the middle of a crowd. Nothing is arranged, people are walking or skating all around, and the blurred head of a boy in the corner increases this sense of "being there". This may not have been a very bright day but the sparse light is well used.

Skating in front of such a fine historical building must be fun. You convey the joy and fun in this one nicely, as one feels part of the mob.
have a good sunday

Taking the grey sky into consideration, Miguel, the outcome is fabulous - just about the tilt, I will regard this as an artistic approach.
Fine happy faces, fantastic Ghotic architecture, and good light managed.

The composition of all these elements makes the photo .....so interesting.
I like it a lot.

Hello Miguel - I like it when public buildings and places set up rinks like this, it's a wonderful way to get people out and social in the dark winter months. A nice candid shot here of the crowd gathered, with the young couple and camera creating a good FG presence here, and the impressive building a beautiful backdrop.
Thanks and have a good Sunday!

Superb image of this great architecture, good POV with a tower in the foreground and the other at the back, gives us a good idea of its grandeur and style, the presence of people give a cheerful vital touch to the composition.
Have a nice day.

nice the view of the Natural History Museum woith the lot of people to enjoy more the snow than the Museum.
Excellent hte clarity of the image.
kim_gwan (418) 2013-06-03 6:09
This is a well composed shot with fantastic vividness of the museum and plentiful of human activities.
You introduced an innovative idea of partying besides a magnificent architectural building.
Your picturesque depicts so much life's in it especially the couple checking on their camera LCD and the sisters holding hands learning to skate.

I just love this building. It reminds of the Shivaji terminus in Mumbai which was called Victoria before. I found lots of similarities, Gothic style of architecture.
Nicely done, good moment of people skating.
