Bom dia Tsilla,
WOW, what a luxury! ;O)
Great panoramic shot with very good frontal POV and exceptional DOF.
It's a capture at the level of the subject.
Have a good Sunday.

Wonderful capture of this elegant room Tsilla. The lighting makes everything shine so much and gives us an idea of how this room must have looked in the past. The inclusion of the pianos at the end show the scale well and I am sure I can see people dancing in the background. Is this a mirror, a picture or a view into the next room?

A fantastic golden ambient in this rich Grand Ballroom.
Perfect light management and a lovely play with shadows. Impeccable sharpness and such a neat presentation.
My best regards,

A beautiful room, the inlay within the flooring is stunning. The amount of lighting hilights the gold ornate work to the walls. tfs

Technically a very good photo, considering the size of the hall and the light conditions.
The opulence displayed is amazing. I think this palace was very heavily damaged during the WWII. Nice to see that it has been restored.
One can almost visualize a grand ball with the Czar in attendance and group of dancers gracefully moving to a waltz by Tchaikovsky.

Russia has some of the most ornate and gorgous Palaces I have ever seen. The images are stunning, and yours is know exception. Awesome POV and use of light to capture this. Thanks for sharing history with us.

I'm presuming you shot this in natural light? You have captured the reflection of the windows on the parguet floor well, their shapes blend well with the decor of the room.You have captured the eloquence & artistry &^ the colours of this Grand Ballroom very well.TFS
