Towering Corinthians

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 March 2011 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Commuters are awed as they enter this 20,000 square-foot classic Beaux Arts style room which boasts eighteen (18) soaring Corinthian columns, terra cotta walls, a pink marble floor and is crowned with a spectacular five-story barrel vaulted atrium.

My apologies to Curly when I said I had a shot of many commuters captured in a "motion blur." Obviously not many here.

Captured February 8, 2011.

SONY DSLR-A300 1/2 second F/22.0 ISO 100 18 mm

I suddenly find myself wondering about the acoustics in there . . I imagine the sounds of voices and footsteps echo around ?

i side with roman - a terrific series of this classy building! this photo strikes me as particularly successful in conveying the dimensions of splendours of the place, and the motion blur adds considerably to its charm!

Oh well, not to worry. This shot gives a better overall impression of the size of this great hall.

I think the motion blur is just perfect, though Steven....not so many that it becomes a distraction...just enough to put the point across and draw additional interest. The promary subject here is the beuatiful building and columns and the people add interest and draw attention to the primary element...so beautifully rendered as always Steven!
