This is the Texas State Capitol in Austin. I wish a photograph could do it justice. It is so "larger than life" and beautiful up close.

Beautiful detail, nice work with the light. (Why is the flag at half-staff?)

If I'd sent you on assignment to take a shot of the capitol to highlight the architecture, this would be exactly what I'd want to see. The clarity, especially for a night shot, is stunning, and the composition and exposure are dead on. The framing at the bottom with the trees, though, is what truly completes the picture. It's classic and it's gorgeous!

Simply Beautiful! The white of the buidling really contrasts nicely with the black everywere else in the image. It is tac sharp and the exposure is spot on. If I had to change anything I might have cloned out the spire on the left and that spot of light in the trees on the far left so that the entire building appeared nestled by the trees. Great Job. 10

Absolutely beautiful!

Magical..... Absolutely think this is a winner for sure.....I see a ribbon and hope it is the "BLUE"..... "WOW" factor, and really love the composition.
A "10" from me and if I could I would give it a "12".
