A trip to Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna gave me an opportunity to shoot something for this challenge. I was hoping to take a shot from on top of the Gloriette on the top of the hill, but it's closed in December... darn. I expect this will place in the middle of the pack... it's not the most imaginative picture. Still, it was interesting learning how to create the "miniature people" effect :-}

Hey I was right, you did finish on the front page, one of the tiny few I gave 10's to, well done on a new PB. Oh yes and I've been there.

I don't think Grace has much to worry about, fine bunch of miniatures, good perspective.

You found the perfect POV for this shot from the Gloriette up on the hill.
I doubt, that the Emperor would have cared.

I really like the composition of this image. Filling the horizontal frame with the building really gives a sense of infinity.

The blurred building is disturbing, but overall nice

Big Government will... until it takes over completely and goes bankrupt. Then, the people will be left with nothing and will fear for their lives. They will riot in the streets and physically steal for their existence.

After a while... it will all begin again.

The people will begin again... and will begin a government again... just giving the government a little.

Then, they'll give them a little more... and before you know it... here we are again.

Oh! But... I rant. Sorry.

I do love this image... PERFECT for the challenge. I can see this being a miniature scene. Even the colors are wonderful.

But... alas! I'm not voting in the challenge. *sigh*
