Stunning architecture masterly captured, warm tones and very good management of light. i like the human presence to have a reference of the huge dimensions of this monument.

what a wonderfully symmetric composition. the detail and depth of field are stunning. i like your inclusion of the figure in the corner, the red coat contrasts well with the natural stone colours, and they also give the picture a sense of scale, emphasising the size of this magnificant building.
ashres (1453) 2012-05-13 2:23
great capture of the monument. The composition is nice and that man looking towards the idol is adding more life here. Nice symmetry. nice capture.
SnapRJW (23656) 2012-05-13 2:27
Hello Malgorzata - What a cracking shot. I can quite see why the lady in red is craning her neck to look at the architectural detail, it is incredibly detailed and fine. Your shot has such good light management that every one of those details has been well captured. A top class image where the small figure really highlights and amplifies the majesty of the building. Warm regards Rosemary

Ciao cara Malgorzata
This photo is exquisite and the architecture is equally beautiful. The person at the bottom of the stairs provides an excellent contrast to the uniform colours of the architecture and the details are just amazing. Incredible symmetry, sharpness and contrast. Congratulations on this and your 300th photo on TE, I wish you many more.

Wow! This is stunning. Such amazing detail and I can see why it is being admired. Your light management here is flawless as is the clarity and sharpness. The sense of scale is magnificent and the result is compelling. Awesome!
I wish you a peaceful Sunday - Brian.

This Palace of Justice is a real masterpiece of architecture and you took a great shot of the inside, showing a mix of different styles that work surprisingly well together and bring up sensations from the past. As a matter of fact, you could almost think it's a huge cardboard temple for an Indiana Jones movie ! Did you notice the red marks on the stairs ? Could it be Cesar's blood ? ;)
Great mystery atmosphere.
Sergiom (45441) 2012-05-13 7:37
J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image qui met bien en scène ce visiteur qui semble bien petit devant cet escalier monumental.
npecanhuk (56368) 2012-05-13 7:39
Everything here is perfect... I love it all: sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and, above all, composition with that person there are all oustanding features here!
TFS - congrats,

a wonderful and suggestive picture presenting the marvellous rhythm of the architecture with astonishing sharpness and clarity, superb and effective lighting. The soft light and the precision of the contrasts offer a fascinating elegance. The lady captivated by the sight couldn't stand on a better spot or wear a more suitable colour. You've really made the most of your theme, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

no to jest wspaniala i imponujaca architektura, zapiera dech w piersiach. Pieknie wykonane jak zawsze. Fajnie ze wlaczylas te osobke, bo mazna miec skale porownania.
Ta architektura robi ogromne wrazenie. Piekne zdjecie i pieknie wykonane zachowujac wspaniala symetrie.
Podoba mi sie bardzo,

Witaj, bardzo ciekawe zdjęcie, wszystko w tym samycm kolorze, poza jedna zainteresowana turystką w czrwonej kurtce. Znakomita prezentacja - świetna ko mpozycja, super kolory i ostrość.
abmdsudi (32505) 2012-05-14 3:22
A grand interior shot from excellent viewpoint, so pin sharp with splendid details in superb clarity. A fine interior architecture well taken in good tones, depth, contrast and wonderful ambient. A lovel touch of human element to anchor the eyes in. Great capture.
photoray (6672) 2012-05-14 17:42
Impressive architecture, Greek and Roman style in a collage of columns, like a multi-plex of ancient temples. And everything on a larger than human size scale, as evident by the statues.
Certainly a masterpiece of the 19th century, reflecting ancient empires.
The sepia tone and the comparison with the red coat are also attractive.
eldancer1 (20792) 2012-05-14 21:04
It still amazed me to see buildings built hundreds of years ago and not only still standing but are able to maintain their beauty. Awesome capture of this great architecture with good lighting. Good dof with sharp details. I'm you included the person for sense of proportion. Very well done, tfs.

bayno (18334) 2012-05-15 21:58
very nice architecture and your POV shows it well, is almost a monochrome picture except the red jacket of the woman well positioned in the frame, there is something red on the stairs I do not understand what it is, very sharp...
have a nice day...
jemaflor (74044) 2012-05-16 4:25
Great architecture perfectly presented, light, tones and sharpness, Well too the human presence, a good detail to give a scale at the photo.
mauro61 (52545) 2012-05-16 13:29
la profondità dell'immagine è eccellente e mette in risalto l'architettura e i suoi tanti elementi.
Mi piace l'inserimento della donna a creare un punto di colore,

Very good architectural interior capture with nice effect.
Almost nill distortion and nice framing.
The visitor at right part with red jackets fits well to the scenery and adds life.
TFS and best regards
patdeph (35744) 2012-05-17 3:50
impressive and splendid picture!The monument is magnificent, I love its harmonious colors enhanced by a wonderful light.I also love the presence of the lady in red.Difficult to describe what I like, I am speechless in front of such a beauty.
ChrisJ (91286) 2012-05-17 9:47
Wow! Magnificent neo-classical Greco-Roman architecture & at first glance I thought you had desaturated & added a soft red sepia tint. With the solitary person at right thoghjt I am not so sure. The effect is startling! Well done! Sharpbess & framing are outstanding. Tfs!
annjackman (15533) 2012-05-17 10:59
This is a very sharp and well taken architectual shot made even more interesting by the woman in the red jacket. I like the colours and depth to this image - excellent.
macjake (45588) 2012-05-18 9:31
a very imposing visual.
having that person on the side really gives us a true sense of scale and granduer of the subjects.
love the classical subjects and atmosphere.
I can almost hear the echos of voices in the halls.
pierrefonds (51018) 2012-05-18 18:27
The length of the staircase is givin depth t o the composition. The pointof view is showing the details and colors of the interior of the Palace of Justice. The sharpness is very good. Have a nice day.
ikeharel (44023) 2012-05-19 7:53
Untill opend the picture, not realized that a woman stood there, and what a scale she gave to thoas mighty pillars...

ebingul (1814) 2012-05-22 3:18
This is a wonderful photo and I'm glad that I'm the one who gave 100th points for it.It's really an admirable architecture and you captured it very nicely from a very good POV that creates great DOF and perspective.Having the ladywith a red jacket in FG is a fine and must have touch,otherwise the photo wouldn't be as good.I like it very much.Congrats and best regards.
jmdias (48351) 2012-07-17 3:00
in this area the building looks more like a classic revival than an eclethic building. fanatastic details, the sculptures at side of the stairs are very interesting and huge, very nice idea include the personage, without her we wouldn't have a sense of scale. TFS.a surprising view of this part of the town I never had seen in photos.
rigoletto (32758) 2013-11-10 1:04
hi gosia. impressive, isn't it? you had the good light of may, mine was done on the first day of 2012 and a rainy day, when nobody cared about visiting the place :) you had a good deal of admirers here. i expect a maximum of ten people for my version :))
