Perfection. Elegance. Beauty to the core.
Have a great weekend.

That is quite impressive...both the architecture and your photography. Brilliant in black and white.

Dimple said...

An image of the sun in black and white. (So to speak!)

I like the way you've captured the entire range of tones including the marvelous grays. Nice composition of course.

Really nice! It looks like an etching it has such detail!

RennyBA said...

Breathtaking Rune - again!

Btw: Hope you had a great St. Hans celebration :-)

Lekkert! Og smakfullt i sort/hvitt!

This is a perfect symmetrical photo! Beautiful and impressive! Now I have even more reasons to go to Berlin!

Great view, it aways pays to look up.

Very impressive ceiling, love the dome affect....
It does remind me of some old postage stamps, it is the design in each square, but then they are Russian. :/

Gry said...

Flott bilde! Trodde det var Pantheon i Roma med det samme. Skjønner det er flere som har samme designet.... :-)

T. Becque said...

So nice! I love patterns in b&w.

Tulsa Gentleman said...

This would be seen very differently in color. Here it is about the pattern of repeated rectangles.

Dharma Shots said...

This photo in b/w tells us so many things..and yeah it pays to look upward and be mindful of the things we see.

imac said...

Nice one - stiff neck.

paul said...

Well seen! That's a great pattern.

Serendipity said...

Fabulous! (I would have got dizzy taking that!)

Så snyggt! Perfekt i mono. Jag gillar bilder med motiv som bildar snygga mönster.

EG Wow said...

You had to really bend back to get this photo! (Or were you flat on the floor?) Wonderful photo so it was worth whatever you had to do to get it. :)

I can just about hear the echoes bouncing back from on high...

Very neat looking ceiling, RuneE.
