Got this picture from one of the openings on the mid level. British Museum interior was one of the highlights besides the real historical stuff. On the right with big windows, in there, is where the library is.
Stairs leads to one of cafe. Just a very good place to stay for half a day during the cold winter.

Great angle! So many architecture styles in one photo, and yet they all correspond beautifully. I really like the way the circular roof sits on top of it all.

Excellent shot, Danny. Very bright, very detailed, and like Liora wrote an interesting blend of different styles of architecture. Great angle, with the stairs leading from the right bottom into the center of your picture. I like the roof and the shadow cast on the outside of the café. Well done!

Lovely architecture picture, the angle is very well chosen and you have handled the whites very well. The contrasts between the old building, the new building and the roof mesh is remarkable. If there is anything to correct it would be a little crop at the bottom to loose the red figure and the blue things.

Very good angle ! I like how you composed that pic, it valuates the architecture of this place.
Good light and exposure also, in spite of the main white color.
Good work Danny !

This architecture is wonderful and the angle you took this picture is well chosen. Everything is sharp and well colored. Well done, Danny!

I love the composition in this one. There are a number of architectural styles, yet the tonal similarity means that they don't clash with one another. A little bit of color really makes it work. A minor sugegstion would be to have included the bottom of the signs at the bottom of the shot, as they're cut off in this one.

I like composition. Ancient and modern architecture in the same place. The presence of pedestrians brings warmth to the scene.
Imho the green overcast should be emove. I have donea WS

An interesting combination not only of architectural styles but also of geometrical shapes. The overall composition is strong and harmonious (though, in contrast to ronners, I would be tempted to crop the bottom to just exclude the person in red and the signs). The subtle colours work well.

I visit British Museum back in sep. 2000 and took a lot photos at this site. I like this one much - with the shadows on the wall and the light from the roof.
(It also inspired me to a theme to collect pictures from this great museum)

A very nice architecture and people shot. the roof creats a nice frae to your composition. The stairs add dynamics, the light is excellent as well as the pale colors. a very good job, Danny.

Impressive building! I like the clear atmosphere and the details. Also good exposure control.

Like the light through the glasses to the building...but love the peacefulness and clean from second half of photo. Very attractive composition with different expression at first and second half of photo.

Wonderful photo, creatively conceived and well executed. The color of the sky and the soft illumination provided by the overhead skylight create a wonderful ambience in the courtyard. The lattice work of the skylight not only creates shadows on the library but is reflected in the library window. I delight in the contrast of the classical facade of the building to the left and the curves of the library separated by the undulatiing steps rising to the library. This is definitely candy for the eyes to enjoy. Thank you for sharing your vision with us.
