Here another point of view of the Pink House.
The Casa Rosada sits at the eastern end of the Plaza de Mayo, a large square which since the 1580 foundation of Buenos Aires has been surrounded by many of the most important political institutions of the city and of Argentina. The site, originally at the shoreline of the Río de la Plata, was first occupied by the "Fort of Juan Baltazar of Austria", a structure built on the orders of the founder of Buenos Aires, Captain Juan de Garay, in 1594. Its 1713 replacement by a masonry structure (the "Castle of San Miguel") complete with turrets made the spot the effective nerve center of colonial government. Following independence, President Bernardino Rivadavia had a Neoclassical portico built at the entrance in 1825, and the building remained unchanged until, in 1857, the fort was demolished in favor of a new customs building. Under the direction of British Argentine architect Edward Taylor, the Italianate structure functioned as Buenos Aires' largest building from 1859 until the 1890s.

J'aime beaucoup la diagonale que forme cette immeuble rose dans l'image. Cela lui donne de la profondeur. Dommage pour la clôture métallique devant. La lumière est spectaculaire.

Impressive grandiose Italianate with Romanesque features architecture, with numerous arches and façade columns, and the pink tone from the type of rock used enhances the structure.
Would enjoy visiting in person.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: I tried to open the web address you provided on the rock scenery but Trek Earth's program did not permit.

The perspective is excellent in this shot. Also, the details and colors are clear and beautiful. Your note explaining the history is informative and helpful.

Another view of the Pink House with a wonderful result.
Lovely architecture picture with the decorative facade, a pity of the fence before the facade, not the mistake of the photographer.
Also a nice perspective and depth picture.
Excellent composition, nice of colour too
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
