Excellent look at the mounted police outside the palace. I went on a palace tour whilst living in Spain and remember being ordered not to take photographs inside.

@Shaun: Didn't go inside, though we did have a walk round the gardens. Too many other things to see and too little time to see them in :)

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Great framing with a ...photographer ?

The B&W really gives the feeling of a fortress.

An interesting composition where the windows appear to line up with the lines of the wrought iron fence!! It creates a nice sense of rhythm!

@Steven: well observed

The squatter adds an extra touch of interest to this already worthy scene. I like the black and white choice, too.

Lol - not great guards - they didn't stop the guys behind them getting to the other side of the fence! Seriously - lovely shot. The Black and White is ideally suited.

A wonderful image of these guards and their horses against the background of the high fence. The other person seems totally engrossed in these horses. A fabulous scene.

The mounted guards seem very impressive.
