The Rotunda in the Texas State Capitol. Taken on a very fun day I had hanging out with Jutilda last Friday :)

And of course inspired by Yanko's original (I think it was the original). It was the first one I'd seen like it anyway.

Sometimes your pictures almost make me cry.

Not only because of their wonderful intinsic beauty but also because I realise my own inadequacies

I have tried to take an image like this of a building in the UK loads of times and have never produced anything that comes even within touching distance of this

Wonderful dof gives sharpness throughout, the lighting gives the image a luminosity which is breathtaking and the pattern itself is just incredible

In our offices we have a number of large framed B&W shots of abstract architectural patterns and let me tell you that none of them are as good as this

Another one of your images that is heading straight to my favourites

Although the focus is nice, the contrast could use some work.

the lines in this photo define the positive characteristics of this image.

Beautiful photo. Crisp. The perspective is extremely effective in making what was potential a dull dome photo into something very dynamic. Congratulations on producing a stunning photo.

Fantasic exposure. You have done really well not to blow out any highlights.

Wow, I've seen this shot from a lot of different photographers, and I gotta say, I think it loses a lot of it's interest as a b/w. I do like everything else. Nice tonal range and framing. It looks like everything is in focus.

Nice. Fine lines and great detail. I may have done the comp so as to have it angled differently and off toward a corner a touch, but that a personal pref.

The asymetry did not work for me.

I really like how you took this at an angle. It adds a lot that you wouldn't have captured otherwise. great subject also.
