The front of the South Dakota capitol building in Pierre. I said a lot yesterday, so I'll keep this entry short. My apologies for the lack of decent photos recently...I've been slightly busier than usual. Hopefully my 20D will see some action soon!

Obviously an overcontrasted look; kinda trying to find something interesting to do with rather boring images. In this shot I think the high contrast emphasizes the lines and perspective.

I like the choice for B&W and the symmetry.

Interesting picture, yes somewhat bland but it has an overpowering feeling of authority to it that makes the photograph work- probably what the designers intended for everyone to feel while walking up and seeing the scene. Brings up an architectural point, just why could they carve out a "D" but not a "U"?
