I have already Palacio Legislativo in my TrekEarth gallery (click here to see it). This is a presentation from slightly different angle.
Palacio Legislativo in Montevideo, Uruguay, is the name of the working place of the General Assembly of Uruguay. The construction of this building started in 1904 sponsored by the government of President José Batlle y Ordoñez. It was designed by Italian architects Vittorio Meano and Gaetano Moretti, who planned the building's interior. Among the notable contributors to the project was sculptor José Belloni, who created numerous reliefs and allegorical sculptures for the building. The General Assembly building was inaugurated on August 25, 1925, presided over by President José Serrato, to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Uruguayan Independence; before then, the Uruguayan parliament assembled at the Montevideo Cabildo.

spectacular the view of Palacio Legislativo with the statue on the left to makes the scene even more effective.The excellent light management enhance the vivid colours as the beauty and the clarity of this postcard from Montevideo.
Have a good weekend,Danos

peccato per la presenza delle auto che sisturbano la visione perchè la foto è di altissimo livello sia per la composizione con la bella contrappodizione tra l'edificio dall'aspetto grandioso e il monumento in primo piano.
Straordinaria anche la luce che si posa su entrambi i soggetti.
Favolosa anche la definizione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Excellent POV, capturing both the original monument in the foreground and behind the magnificent building, great architecture and great visual appeal, a splendid day with a pretty sky that contributes to round result.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.

a superb POV with amazing DOF. The palatial building is outstandingly detailed and the intricacy of its façade just beautiful. Wonderful capture.
Have a good week - B.

you have chosen a good visual angle, in order to reach a good soft perspective and a good juxtaposition of the sculpture and of the elegant neoclassical architecture of the palace.
The light, the colors and sharpness at top level.
A beautiful work.

What a building! Majestic and imposing, and very very impressive, you have captured its spirit brilliantly well here. The flags are flying perfectly in this scene, and the statue gives brilliant depth, and is itself an impressive work. A wonderful sky behind to present it against too.
Thanks for sharing this Mariusz, a building I was not familiar with!
All the best

A very impressive building, indeed very monumental. You have chosen a good angle and the included statue is well placed.
ikeharel (72971) 2014-01-12 8:23
The diagonal POV on the impressive Palacio, and with the previous post on its facade, gave a comprehensive perspective to the size and imposing virtue of this building, Mariusz.
Exquisite and marvelous carved statues on the upper beam above the entrance.
A fine shot.

Twoja urugwajska kolekcja jest dosc zaskakujaca. Budynek wyglada bardzo europejsko i przez chwile myslalam ze to raczej Francja. Wlasnie dlatego lubie TE, ze przelamuje stereotypy mysleniowe.
Dobry POV i prosta i skuteczna kompozycja z rzezba w cetralnym punkcie i bydynkiem, ktory wyraznie nosi slady rzymskiej architektury w tle. Ladne kolory i bardzo dobra ostrosc.

Another grand capture! A majestic monumental image in all respects gorgeous, with useful narrative taken from from good vantage point to give such large size and depth to the scene. The detail captured in particular the statues is brilliant with some wonderful rich tones and strong contrast. A fine piece of architecture given its age and really looks great. Superb capture and tfs

I thought we wer in Italy with this architecture and then I read it was designed by Italian architects. It really reminds me of the Vittoriano on the Capitoline Hill of Rome. There was no doubt in my mind that this was a House of Parliament. Beautifully composed, with the imposing statue to the left and excellent colours, contrasts and light control.
Excellent, and Uruguay is calling me!

Excellent shot of Palacio Legislativo in Montevideo .Nice colors and sharpness.Very well done.TFS.

Un angle de prise autre de celle présenter sur le lien, ici qui inclus les sculptures mis sur l'avant plan tout en laissant une vue intéressante sur ce magnifique bâtiment, sous une belle lumière
Waylim (25502) 2014-01-15 8:56
You could have fooled me. This looks like some European cities with such beautiful church full of wonderful statues and roman collumns. Great light with beautiful sky and clouds. Excellent inclusion of the statue in the foreground. Excellent quality as always.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2014-01-16 23:40
with this p.o.v. you give us also the depth of the building. nice colors and excellent sharpness as usual.

What a majestic place. Wonderful architecture, good point of view and great capture.
emka (100059) 2014-01-18 5:21
cześć Mariusz, Rzeczywiście monumentalna architektura. Choc calkowicie to jest rózne, a jednak przypomina mi Altare della Patria z Rzymu, też takie białe i majestatyczne. Klasyczne wpływy są wszędzie i pewnie zawsze będa. Piekny tympanon,ale najbardziej tu mnie zaskakuje ta konstrukcja z tylu, z rzeźbami. Na poprzednim zdjeciu były urocze aksamitki, tu ciekawa jest ta rześba w zielonkawym kolorze.

You chose a perfect angle, you place this statue perfect out of the centre, of the picture.
On these way see we nice the building in background.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Lovely architecture and perfect presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

This is a very ornate building with an impressive bronze statue. Interesting POV and good DOF, allowing us to observe both subjects in detail.
Periko (5550) 2016-05-22 22:51
The building and the sculpture are great.
The light was fabulous for this picture.
I didn't saw this building when visited Montevideo 8 years ago!
