PALÁCIO DA ALVORADA
I took this picture when I first visited Brasília back in 2008! That's the PALÁCIO DA ALVORADA / DAWN'S PALACE, "the official residence of the President of Brazil. It is located on a peninsula by the Paranoá Lake. The building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer and built between 1957 and 1958 in the modernist style. It has been the residence of every Brazilian president since Juscelino Kubitschek. The building is listed as a National Historic Heritage Site. (Wikipedia)" Therefore, as I wasn't in any guided visit, I couldn't enter, so I had to take this picture from a certain distance! As I saw the pictures taken by that time, I decided to use this one as a hommage to OSCAR NIEMEYER, one of the greatest architects in the World, interrupting for a while my previous series!

Hi Ney, Nice hommage to the lately dead Oscar Niemeyer. Probably Brasilia was his most famous work. Interesting view of the Presidential Palace. Strange that it is so flat and low.

unusual minimalist shot this. But one that works so elegantly. Love the layers of colours and shapes that make the shot so original and compelling. Well done!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

The expanse of lawn gives the image depth but I can't help thinking that the composition would be strengthened by cropping a large part of it to produce a panoramic image composed along the rule of thirds. Just a personal point of view. Good technical realisation.

a really fitting tribute to the great architect of Brasilea that was Oscar Niemeyer.
it is a mininalistic view that works so well here.

O homem era mesmo um artista único em sua especialidade. Tudo o que ele fez é belíssimo.

nunca puedo resistirme a las obras maestras de uno de mis arquitectos favoritos.
Me gusta cómo has estructurado esta composición, con el increíble y funcional diseño de Niemeyer, la potencia y la sencillez de sus líneas, y su perfecta integración en el verdor del parque.
Es un trabajo magnífico.
