A view along the length of the Royal Pavilion and the surrounding gardens in the City of Brighton, East Sussex, England. In the distance, is the North Gate, which is the northern entrance, created and designed in a decorative Indian style. This beautiful gateway is constructed of both Bath & Portland stone on top of which sits an onion shaped copper dome. It was erected, in the same style as the pavilion, by Joseph Good in 1832 for King William IV, and is adorned with pillars, minarets and a scalloped ogive arch forms the gateway. On 4 October 1837 Queen Victoria made her first visit to Brighton and the Royal Pavilion so the North Gate was duly decorated with flowers and turned into a triumphal arch to welcome her into the city.

This photo presents wonderful lines and structures, highlights and shadows and therefore very good contrast. Well done.

I like the symmetry of the red & green turrets & the repetition of the minarets. Nice to have this conveniently located in England too. Saves you the airfare & a possible upset stomach, travelling to India & back! Good sharpness & a nice warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky & reddish yellow tinted stonework. Tfs!

i wrote a critique, but I lost it after I clicked 'useful'..not very easy for me to write in English:-).. Mainly, a beautiful image, with wonderful colour and light, ( your image's colour is very unique, I can tell from thumbnail even I have't been here very long). Only one tiny matter, please forgive me, if I'm a bit picky:-D, I just thought that your photos are too good not to be perfect, but this 'perfect' is only my opinion, it doesn't affect the picture as a whole is an excellent one. The little red colour 'thing' distracted my attention a bit. Really, I don't know much about photography, I never know what should be or should not be on the photo. Just a thought, hope that you don't mind.

Architecture particulière (et pas très britannique!) que tu as parfaitement mis en image dans cette belle composition verticale où on admire lumière, couleurs et qualité d'image.

Thank you for an interesting note - I even had to look up the word "ogive" because I had never heard of that before. We live and learn!
A beautifully composed shot in which you have made best use of the opportunity to demonstrate the strong perpectives in this building, aided by the strong oblique lighting. The colours are glorious, especially of that creamy stonework, and the exposure and sharpness are perfect.

I really like this one too!
Lots of interesting architectural details surrounded by beautiful nature!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov, vertical format and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

The Royal Pavillion is a sumptuous building. I really liked your previous shot and this extends my knowledge of it, for I have never seen it from this angle. The good use of converging lines produces a fine sense of perspective as well as leading effectively to the strongly positioned gateway. As always, the shot is well saturated.
Have a great day,

I've never seen this "exotic" monument in Brighton but it is quite curious and you have captured it masterly, as usual.

A nice corner, with a pleasant prespective driving on the Indian arc, half-hidden by the bushes.
What a sky you had in March...
