[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was Tsar Peter the Great's summer palace in St. Petersburg on the Baltic Sea.

In 1924 is was renamed Leningrad and in 1991 changed back to St.Petersburg.

It was seriously damaged by the Germans during WW2 but is now restored to its original state.

Our tour guide was called " Anastasia" how great was that?
Anastasia was the name of the last surviving child of the Russian Royal family

Hello Jack

Tac sharp and full charm and beauty with all important clouds to give character. Would be a good book cover. awesome pro work here

Nice tones but the left most cross is over exposed. The POV is awkward, especially near the bottom. I think getting closer to a 45 degree angle or going for symmetry would have been wiser. Good luck.


Love this b&w.
I love the light that sparkles on the left cross, beautiful, inspiring.
Excellent work, superb tones.
