Thank you for all your comments from my last post, but haven't been able to get back to you because of illness.
This photo is a continuation of our SF trip through the Golden Gate Park. There are so many things to do at the park and this is one of them.
The Conservatory of Flowers is a greenhouse and botanical garden that houses a collection of rare and exotic plants in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California. With construction completed in 1878, it remains the oldest building in the park, and the oldest municipal wooden conservatory remaining in the United States. It is also one of the first municipal conservatories constructed in the country. For these distinctions and for its associated historical, architectural, and engineering merits, the Conservatory of Flowers is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the California Register of Historical Places, is a California Historical Landmark, and a San Francisco Designated Landmark.
Golden Gate Park, located in San Francisco, California, is a large urban park consisting of 1,017 acres (412 ha) of public grounds. Configured as a rectangle, it is similar in shape but 20% larger than Central Park in New York, to which it is often compared. It is over three miles (5 km) long east to west, and about half a mile north to south. With 13 million visitors annually, Golden Gate is the third most visited city park in the United States after Central Park in New York City and Lincoln Park in Chicago.

Hello Buddy ,
An attractive white building (almost like a mosque !) ; in a colorful park . Like a lot the contrast provided by the green trees The composition and the angle of veiw are excellent , but , may be , if you have moved a little to the left , you would have placed the domeperfectly betwen the palm trees .

Hope you'll get better soon. Regarding this photo, I liked the diversity of splendid colors here. Especially the pure white gate and the walls looks very eyecatching and makes strong contrast against the whole scene. And the people seem enjoying the beauty of this charming park. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

Hello Buddy! Perfect clear photo viewing your personal gallery, this photo stands out very well.
the colourfull park with flowers really adds alot to the scene, gives a buffer for the blue sky and white.
the sharpness and overall quality of the subjects are very good.

I'm waiting to see your butterfly photos! Took pictures of wild butterfly this morning but my selection is very limited. Great capture of this white building against the clear blue sky (you have clear blue sky in SF? It's always cloudy when I go there.) Good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

A beautiful white pavilion and a nice white wall crowned with tiny battlements. And the wall by the stairs wonderful flower discounts. Palm trees add to the exotic. Excellent image quality.

these gardens are really fantastic, I like the splendid light and the beautiful colors of the plants and of the flowers, in this elegant composition.
Also I love the strong chromatic contrast between the green tones, the whiteness of the architecture and the intense blue of the sky. Everything works to a great aesthetic level.
A great work.

I was intrigued with the title - and astonished with the photo when opend.
Vivid colors and fine ambiance on the park with the white greenhouse on BG contrast well onto blue sky and verdant surrounding's, flowers and palm trees.
People in pic. gave a good scale. Lovely shot.

Festival de jolies couleurs fortes Buddy, une météo parfaite faite pour la balade et bien entendu la photographie. La pureté des blancs est un autre point fort de la photo.

A very attractive shot with so many colors combined look very nice. I like the white washed building surrounded by beautiful palm and other trees and blue sky as a nice background. I like the beautiful flowers with different colors in the foreground. I have been to this park long time back.Saw the Japanese garden too.
