This is an excellent capture of this magnificent interior. Your high vantage point gives a superb overview of the hall and visitors, who offer a good sense of scale. Perfectly exposed with top class colours and clarity. A great piece of photography. Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend.

Une mangifique photo, avec une bon point de vue dans l'axe. Et comme résultat une symétrie parfaite.
Ce volume est remarquable, avec une bonne lumière.

this place looks amazing and you have achieved such amazing levels of detail in this capture, no matter how close I zoom in or where, every brick is visible in the finest most intricate detail. That combined with the sheer architectural majesty of the hall itself makes this a really beautiful capture
really nicely done

I love that light is coming from all the different sources and how you handled it... Everything is very sharp and clear and you managed to keep plenty of detail... Looks like a great building and you captured it with a great photo...

Tu as su trouver le point de vue idéal sur cet escalier spectaculaire et sur le hall majestueux. L'ensemble est très symétrique .Le cadrage vertical donne beaucoup d'ampleur et la lumière est parfaitement gérée.Aucune déformation due à la lentille.

A striking symmetrical image of that centrall hall of the museum. Only the many visitors and some details break this symmetry.
An excellent sharp and wonderful detailed presentation.
Best regards, Paul

Some buildings retain the lost splendour of former times and they are real jewels of architecture. This museum is the right example and your picture does justice to its true beauty. With its high ceilings, its Romanesque-style and stained-glass windows, it reminds of a church. I like the atmosphere and the way you've composed this image, based on the symmetry of the architecture with a quite artistic result. Your light management is just perfect and there is a great amount of detail in the building. An excellently composed and framed image.

wnetrze robi niesamowite wrazenie-zarowno swoimi rozmiarami,ale jeszcze bardziej architektura.
Kamienne wnetrze stwarza troche "zimny"charakter tego wnetrza,co natomiast swietnie kontrastuje ze sztucznym oswietleniem,ktore nieco ociepla calosc.
Wyglada jak miejsce,ktore mozna by fotografowac godzinami.
Pozdrawiam i zycze milego weekendu

Magnificent interior details!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, large vertical format, slim black borders, contrasts, chosen pov and symmetrical composition are all excellent photo qualities that I truly enjoyed!
TFS - congrats,

molto bella questa foto, mi piace come hai inquadrato questa architettura, un'ottima esposizione e un ottimo controllo della profondità.
Sono molto belle le vetrate, mi piace la simmetria delle scale ed è molto piacevole tutto il movimento di persone.

Wow! what a fantastic place and an equally top class photo. I just love the balance and symmetry in the composition. The size of the visitors show us how huge this hall is. Superb view of architecture and artwork all over the frame. Excellent photo of rich interiors. Great work, I like it! Apologies for missing this one before. Thanks for sharing.

Très belle prise de vue du hall de ce musée. La lumière est parfaite et permet de bien voir les détails de l'architecture. Très bonne netteté de l'image. Bien fait.
ourania (32049) 2014-03-16 7:45
the composition and quality of this photo are marvellous, the viewer doesn't only get a description of the grand hall but also the experience of being an observer actually standing at your excellent vantage point. The symmetry, the definition and the depth are amazing and offer so much to the viewer to explore and dwell on. I also love the colours and the atmosphere and enjoy watching the people. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

A marvelous indoor's scenery of the museum, beautifully taken from the high POV and show from the bottom of the staircase up to the iron beams and glasses of the magnificent ceiling.
Fine photojob done, with people moving around the hall.
jcpix (13688) 2014-03-23 9:08
This sure packs a punch at first sight! A grand, wide open view over the spacious hall, wonderfully composed to include so much of its natural beauty. The detailing is exquisite, so many lines, shapes and patterns for someone like me to thoroughly enjoy...I'm having a great time scanning over every little facet. Love the slight golden tones projected from the artificial lights, accenting the entire scene from top to bottom. A real beauty! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.
jemaflor (85456) 2014-03-26 0:05

Thanks for sharing

This is one of my favourite places when I go to London. In fact I really like all the museums you mention in your note. This is a classic composition of the great hall, balanced and symmetrical, which captures the scale and size of this place.
rigoletto (34269) 2014-05-01 6:47
such an attractive interior and very nice photo of it. being at the top floor gave you a truly comprehensive view of the hall. the sharpness (esp. of the stained glass) is incredible for f1.8 and 1/40.
