I spent several days to assemble and edit some 10 photos I took while I was there (no fisheye, no autopano!). The original image is big.

The Brussels Palace of Justice is the most important Court building in Belgium and is a notable landmark of Brussels. It was built between 1866 and 1883 in the eclectic style by architect Joseph Poelaert.

The Palace is the most massive building constructed in the 19th century. It is bigger than St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The building is currently 160 by 150 meters and has a total built ground surface of 26,000 m. The 104 meter high dome weighs 24,000 tons. The building has 8 courtyards with a surface of 6000 m, 27 large court rooms and 245 smaller court rooms and other rooms.

Situated on a hill, there is a level difference of 20 meters between the upper and lower town, which results in multiple entrances to the building at different levels.

PS: The streets are really like shown above!

The above image has been created with photos taken with the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

Beautiful. My favorite part of the photograph is the lower left corner because of the way the light shines between the buildings. I also like the the contrasting textures including the trees, the cobblestone street, and the smoothness of the buildings.

Wow, that DOES look like a drawing! (I think it's the black & white and the angle, etc) It looks amazing, great composition and I love the different textures (the sky and buildings create a great contrast!) :)

Hmm I like this a lot, but what is the focus point supposed to be? I mean like the .... subject of the picture? there's a lot going on, am I supposed to focus on the building, the distance or the white car parked sideways?
