Zig would tell you Faneuil Hall is in Boston
 
but don't believe him - it's in Angola, Indiana.

Well Ted,

I learned 2 things with your post.

I did not know that there was another Fanuiel Hall outside of the one found in Boston.
I also thought that Angola was on another continent.:rolleyes:


Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

I figured you'd smile about this.

It is the Steuben County (Indiana) Courthouse. It was built in 1868 as a replica of the original Faneuil Hall, and is still in use as the courthouse today. I thought that was pretty interesting plus this one's a lot easier to photograph, not being hemmed in by other buildings. Although it did take me some 20 minutes, because I'm standing in the middle of a busy traffic circle (the only place to get a good shot of it) and they were repaving the asphalt in front of the building. It took a while for a break in traffic coupled with the friggin steamroller being out of the photo.

If you have a photo of the original Hall it might be interesting to post it.

:) Ho hum; Just another well composed, perfectly exposed, perfectly straight building, with super details in what should be in the shadows. How does one compete with that?? :cool2:

Well done Ted. Another photo which again shows that you have much better patience than I do to compose a shot.

Believe it or not, I didn't need to do an HDR here - the Fill slider in ACR managed to bring up the shadows enough. I was surprised.

But thanks for the compliment. :)
