Default 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.


Thanks for putting a smile on my face.
Zig

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??

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.
