And so they stood,
facing each other with dim eyes
full of tears and regret.

The battle was getting closer...

Binnenhof Court, Den Haag.

The Binnenhof houses the Parliament and the Governor's offices, and it's really a big complex full of gothic architecture. Our visit was unfortunately very short, because we were late on our schedule, so we just took a walk through its court and through the park that lies in front of the big pond at one side of the complex. I took some shots that I'm not very proud of, but anyway it was quite an interesting subject imho.

Btw, I almost forgot about this one! This is a panorama composed of multiple shots (about 6 vertical ones) I edited a while ago to see how the outcome would have looked (I took this handheld, so the quality isn't great but overall the shots were fairly aligned). It took near 2 hours for the program to complete the stitching, and it is overall the biggest photo I've had on my hard drive (600 megabytes for the uncompressed 16-bit TIFF, about 34 megapixels or more!). I liked the results, though the photo is nearly unprintable! :XD:

:jarklarge: I have lived here for 33 years, but to see it like this is really amazing. Very nice title as well, City vs Forest (it's just 1 line of trees but that doesn't matter... ;).
Well done

The fact that u took this hand held is truly laudable......
love the colors and specially the buildings on 1 side and the trees on the other
