Beautiful shots. The brick red colour of the palace blends well with the clear blue sky.

The red colored painting gives a very vintage'ish look to the building. Very appealing too! Lovely flowers and eye catching colors!

Among the pictures of the buildings, I like photo no. 1,5,6. Its very difficult to make a building look good, and you have captured it in the best angles there. Flowers/plants always look good.
