Hola Treklensers,

This is my contribution to today's theme: "Architecture"!

I took this shot inside the museum of Instituto Geológico y Minero de España (Geological and Mining Institute of Spain, IGME). This is a fantastic architecture and one can feel when you are inside. The light was falling from the top glass window of the building and it was illuminating the rest of the building beautifully.

You can visit the homepage of the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain at http://www.igme.es/ to get more information on this lovely museum. You can also watch the 360° view of this museum at: http://www.igme.es/internet/GaleriaFotos/MG_FotoEsferica2012.swf

Have a nice weekend.

This is great! Nice indoor architecture photo. Good light and lots of details. Well done. TFS Julie

Hello Paras,

This is a very nice presentation of this interior architecture. The framing is well done and allows to see the galleries and the nice glass work at the ceiling. The rich colors are well rendered and the sharpness is remarquable.

Best regards

Hi Paras,
I like this POV from the inside of this fantastic building.Great use of available lighting casting such a warmth. A beautiful composition divided into three layers.
A very sharp and neat presentation.
A wonderful contribution to the theme.
Good shot!
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Paras,

The way that you took the scene is allowing me to see the architecture of two side of the interior of the museum. It is clear and sharp. The surrounding light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Bom dia Paras
I like your choice...Spain is one of the countries where I must like architecture...remember for instance Barcelona and António Gaudi but many others...even today architecture is global thing .
Beautiful inner space with a good sharpness and good light msnsgement.
Um abraço

Ciao Paras, fanbtastic interior with fascinating architecture, splendid light and wonderful clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

A grandiose building indeed ! What grabs me is the precision of detail you have managed to gain throughout your compo despite the sole ambient source of lighting passing through the glass roof alone but what illumination the whole interior reaps nonetheless , exquisite .
Well exposed Paras, clarity and definition are first-rate , a fine contribution to the theme ,tfs,
Cheers ,
