Clarifying the Cornice

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 8 March 2011 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Nothing spectacular captured here, but thought I'd illustrate what I was referring to about that "floating cornice" that was cropped out of view when capturing the barrel-vaulted coffered ceiling inside the concourse of Union Station in Chicago.

Photo captured February 8, 2011.

So glad you didn't just point the lens upwards, as many others might have done. You worked well to include as much as possible from the floor to the ceiling.

Have never been in there so the extra shots of architecture are much appreciated. Definitely a nicely made structure.
