questa foto è incantevole per via di una omposizione perfetta, dei colori molto saturi ma senza alcun eccesso e della luminosità superlativa.
Un insieme di fattori che unendosi gli uni agli altri la elevano nettamente al di sopra della media, tanto più che il soggetto rappresentato è di notevole impatto.
Ciao e buona giornata

A perfect capture in lovely saturated colors. An ideal postcard, very well taken.
Have a good day.

well, this may not be baseball related but I still like it! haha
I know of a couple of TE members that will truly love this photo simply for the subject of State Capitol Buildings!!
lovely photo all around, especially with the long perspectives drawing our view inwards.
excellent and vibrant skyline with the contrasting white dome and colors in the fg to blend a bit.

Your fine view of the Minnesota Capitol, including the colorful flower garden foreground, reminds me that many States have mimicked the Washington D.C. Capitol including my home, Sacramento.

wonderful presentation of this impressive building. You got fantastic well saturated colors here, I like the dark blue sky contrasting nicely with the white color of the architecture. Well selected foreground too. I am glad you share it as I had probably never seen a photo from this state.

Missed this one the first time around, Gregory, but now I want to see the Minnesota Capitol even more; the gold statuary at the front is wonderful, but I don't know that I've ever seen a shot of it that gave me a good sense of the grounds. Really a beautiful building, and you chose a wonderful angle here. Do you ever go inside the buildings to look around?
