Terrific architectural capture, Richard; I love the soft greys and the lines and curves, with that skylight punctuating like a full moon over a branching tree.

The skylight's a show stopper for sure, Richard, and I love Chris's simile. Terrific textures, tonal range and lines in this shot.

An excellent EOD entry and a well-deserved Finalist and Gold Winner! Warmest congratulations, Richard! (And how about Gabby Giffords emotional appearance at the House yesterday to cast her vote on the debt-limit bill? What a remarkable woman - a way to go therapy-wise but what a fighter she is...God Bless her!)
