Excellent idea Walter to also show this as an example of the power of the magic hour and dusk photography.   There is to me no comparison as your night version displays so much more life, power, drama and impact than this one.   Many people always wonder why I go out at dusk to shot as it does not make sense to them, but these two photos really show why.   Thanks!

Thanks Richard. The night time version really does provide a more impressive presentation. The artificial lighting, the rich blue dusk sky, and the lack of visible surroundings all combine to give a most impressive view of this beautiful building.

Based on the two samples posted, how could I disagree with the above observations? But I bet that at the right (late or early) time of day, with a full low lying sun, this edifice is bathed in an irresistible golden glow which breathes a life and story into this image that artificial light never could.

Just speculating! And I do like the exposition of these two images, thanks for posting them.
