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

The battle was getting closer...


-[:pencil:]-[]-----------------------------------------------------------------
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
