The style of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, built in 1684, is based on Les Invalides in Paris with a formal facade and a large elegant courtyard
It was built as a home for retired soldiers and continued in that use for over 250 year; after lying closed and unloved for a number of years, it was restored by the Government in 1984 and opened as the Irish Museum of Modern Art in May 1991.
Beautiful photograph! Excellent b/w & shadows.
Très jolie photo. beaucoup de sobriété . Bravo
The perspective of this hospital is magnificent with its slept shadows and the sensible angle of recording with the bell tower which emerges from the arch of the cloister. Very beautiful angle and black and white
Nicely framed, great composition and contrast.
Fantastic use of strong light and shadows to create a highly graphic image.
Looks like a nice place to visit. I love the view through the arches and the deep shadows leaving a lot to the imagination.
nice play of shadows and light here.
Love the chiaroscuro in the columns.
An excellent architectural study, beautifully composed, with great tonal range and intense use of light and shadows. Simply beautiful.
Un jeu de cache cache dans ce lieu monochrome. Une lumière qui se croise avec des ombres très prononcées. Magnifique.
tout simplement magnifique !
One day I want to explore every square inch of Auld Dublin, George. You should get a commission.

Such brilliant framing… 3 subjects in each third of your image. And those rich blacks of yours are awesome.
Perfect framing, and a very dramatic image.
