I sneaked away from our loge in the middle of the second act (we listened to Mozart's "Cosi fan tutte") to take a few photos of this magnificent building without those pesky opera fans marring the view :)

if you are blinded by all this gold, here is a more quiet BW version

Nice work Lev. You pulled some beautiful crispness from that lens.

The PP in indoor light is fabulous. I don't like the distortion at all but for a magazine/article it's fabulously well done. 9

A magical place and a terrific lens choice that really draws me in to the glitter and luxury. The symmetry is almost perfect. A personal favorite.

Excellent fisheye image.

This is pretty cool if only because of the white blooms on the light - not overdone at all and just on the edge providing a very nice artistic touch to the image. Again, not a huge fan of HDR, but the tones and color are very pleasing.

Oh wow what amazing architecture!! Love the wide-angle look. My first thought was "The Sound of Music" house, then I googled the title and found out this is in Austria. Cool!
