Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia, Canada.
Elegant was my first impression to this cute city. The evening stroll along the Inner Harbour was a pleasure.
This picture shows the Parliament Buildings on the Inner Harbour. There is a story behind this beautiful architecture. In 1892, a 25-year-old young man arrived on the west coast just as an architectural competition for a new Legislature Building in Victoria was announced. Francis Rattenbury had no professional credentials but was blessed with both talent and ambition. He submitted a set of drawings and, to the surprise of all, beat out 65 other entries from around the continent.

La lumière éclaire cette architecture de façon sublime et les teintes douces et délicates de ce ciel créent une très bonne partition de couleurs.

Shining domes and a beautiful view of the wide facade, with exquisite clear details collected.
Taken from an adequate distance, depth well maintained.
Impressive moment on scene.

Hello Tiffany, very nice image here. Interesting colors in the sky. Good contrast with the darker tones of the building. Amazing light on the top. Good take.

WOW! You've certainly captured the Parliament Building with the most beautiful light!
While the lower part of the building is already in the shade, the setting sun creates pleasant warm tones on the upper part and let all the green domes shine fabulously.
The different colours of the clouds make the sky to a wonderful backdrop.
Very beautiful !
Best regards, Paul

Interesting dark view of Victoria's Parliament Building with late sun striking the upper floor and domes.
When visiting Victoria, I always enjoy visiting not only the outside but the interior, especially for the artistic stain glass windows.
Thanks for sharing,

l'architettura è molto bella, ma la luce lo è di più.
I raggi caldi del sole colpiscono la parte alta dell'edificio creando una bellissima immagine.

Hello Tiffany - How attractively the light paints the upper portion of the shot with warm tones and how wonderfully well the domes stand out against the beautifully tones sky. A composition that in itself is good but because of the light is raised up to greater visual appeal.

A cracking shot and very "alive" with that catchlight, What a magnificent architecture when you are presented by such quality light at right time when the glowing green domes with a 'different' look - makes it interesting and eye catching. This looks so delicate. you've also handled the exposure and saturated colours expertly and the sky colour is an icing on the cake to finish off. Simply delicious to savour. Fabulous! Congrats

Le détour par l'Île de Victoria vaut vraiment la peine. Le parlement et les jardins sont de toute beauté grâce au micro climat de l'endroit. J'aime beaucoup la lumière qui frappe le toit de l'édifice en diagonale.

Intéressante architecture, un beau moment capturer avec la lumière qui réchauffe le haut, très belle réalisation

An impressive architecture this taken with superb sense of the moment! The warm light tonality created a charming effect here and the scene looks really unique. Very well seen and done.
