      This is understandably the highlight of a visit to Copenhagen: to see so much history:

        I certainly hope and pray that I'm able to convey even a tiny bit of how special it was to visit the Royal Palace, with these images.

            This was probably my favorite room of the palace:

                      This is also one of my favorite shots from the trip to Copenhagen, done in a similar way to the one Dane did in Amsterdam from his holiday apartment.

                      I envisioned the Queen peaking out at the Royal Court from behind her curtains and window:

                        With this, we thank the Royal Palace for having me, and for giving me the experience of seeing so much history:

                          When I return, giving you all some time to digest, we will continue our walk from the Royal Palace and back to town:

                            I was just writing some thoughts when you popped up pakarang, hope they are now not too out of sequence to still post .

                            And then I can already see that I am in for an ABSOLUTE TREAT in the palace. I’ve been in the Rosenborg, but never the Amalienborg…

                            I’ve been thinking that I am also learning things about myself from the comments on pakarang’s photography.

                            As he said, taste is individual, but it is interesting to note we all agreed in a dissatisfaction with 85/3 !
                            But whereas Ivy is doubtful of 85/1, that is one I couldn’t possibly do without in making a compilation of Tivoli in winter from this collection.

                            I felt this image captured the magic of being there in the quick instinctive manner that is so a part of pakarang’s natural style. He has confirmed the spontaneity of taking that photo, but the picture told me that already - just look how the person with the pram is standing still, pin-sharp, while there is movement in the other figure and the child both still –having brought everyone to a halt in the first place – foot firmly planted, and moving at the same time to point to the hearts.

                            But then I found myself imagining this image if the trio of figures wasn’t there, and I feel I would still like it and have no complaint with the composition – indeed I’d go as far as to say that I’d have taken it from that very spot, my lens zoomed to exactly that framing.

                            Although I’d have been satisfied with the result, I might possibly have hung around, just to see if anyone happened to walk into the picture. I sometimes do that – thinking of it as waiting for a “suitable configuration”. In a way that would be the opposite of what pakarang did grabbing the moment (and you have to be what I call “fluent” with your camera to be able to do that – get all the right settings without having to think about it).

                            An example of my opposite approach recently is the one of pakarang working the ropes on Korsfjord’s arrival in Molde, where I was set up on that lead, anticipating he might be seen through it.

                              Jan-Olav, I have so much enjoyed this trip through Copenhagen in all its aspects. You asked if anyone had ever been in the Royal Palace - I have never been to Denmark so I found this tour particularly attractive. You can always find things of great interest in something like this, if the country is known to you then revisiting it through the eyes of another is magnetic, opening your own eyes to things that perhaps you missed or raising a discussion on relative likes and dislikes. Whereas if the viewer has never been to the place portrayed then there is everything to wonder at and enjoy.
                              If you have time I have more comments!
                              Going back to the hotel lobby room in #116.1 : as a picture pure and simple I love it. The shapes, the colours and the composition are just right.
                              #124. 1 and 2 : The arcaded walkway at the palace. I'll fall for any arcade pic. with its receding arches and I think they are popular with everyone! I put one of my photos on Flickr of an arcade in Rhodes that I'd taken years ago, and it was scarcely posted before someone commented on it with great delight in the composition and perspective. So yours is a winner for me. And I like the second one, also, the arcade burrowing away into the shadows and the way the tyre marks echo the curve of the building.
                              #130 Your cosy Christmassy pic. is fun.
                              #131.1 Complete contrast - sombre colours which leave the viewer able to concentrate on the composition without distraction, which I like. I can see you waiting, camera poised, until that solitary walker reached just the right spot before you clicked.
                              That guardsman - has he a flask of tea in that back pouch??? But he has his arms folded - a guardsman! Is that official?
                              As for the palace interior photos, they are a feast, aren't they?
                              At #143 I like the third one best because of the angle at which it was taken. I love diagonals.
                              #146 Reading room. I wonder if the Royal Family ever use it? Look at all the distractions!
                              #156 Now that I like, as a room, it has a more lived in feeling though, again, whether the Family use it is another question. I know I'd rather read there than in the proper reading room! It's beautiful and comfortable, opulent but not so overburdened with objects. You say it is your favourite room, why is that, J-O?

                              Thank you again for these memories that you have shared.
