palace ballroom by castor-lycan palace ballroom by castor-lycan
This was inside the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. I'm not sure if it was a ballroom or not, but it was my favorite room in the palace.

I would love that my fair Princess to Descend from the Palace of the Heavens of the Stars to Gently Weaver to My Hands under the Stars twinkling in Harmony and to hold her waist gently as i try to Endure into her eyes to see her Beauty,but my pupils fall as feathers to the Ground bathing vision to her sweet Radiant Feet.In a Brilliant Blush She lifts up my head and Steals the Wings of the Ethereal of my Lungs to the Realm of her Angelic envelope While we Dance as the Moment Reveals a Fanatic Scene that is so Vivid I cant feel alive In This Ballroom under the Ordainment of God.-Israel Valencia.(Me)hehe :33

i think i like this better than the blue one. this has an antique, washed out feel. and i like the people in the back.

this looks like a ballroom to me. i think you are right by the way.

a very nice shot. :)

I wrote "Winter Palace" in "Search Art", because I have never seen photos of this building on DA before. In addition, I am very interested in history of Russia and I read a lot of books about it. Because of this I would like to visit places that are connected with tsars...I would like to be here, in ballroom and feel atmosphere of old days of history :heart: !

I love this photo, and I'm not just sayin' it either. I seriously do. My friends looked on the screen and were like, "Woah! A REAL PERSON took that picture?" So then this whole conversation about whether or not you were some kind of photography divinity came to life... but that's besides the point oh master photographer Castor-Lycan *bows repetedly* We worship you! Grant us powers! We want the gift!

wow...not too much you can say about this kind of architecture, eh? i can imagine it was amazing to be there. i love the way the pillars frame the shot, and the detail in them is amazing. also, the chandeliers are beautiful, and they lead the eye very well down the corridor. the light coming from the windows is very nice too...it's a bit overexposed, but i think in this case it adds a great atmosphere to the shot...if we were able to see detail of the outside, it might change the grand feeling of the shot. i also like the sepia...it's a very...regal? tone. :D very nice!
