Customs facade 1

The facade of Customs House is dominated by four ornate columns standing proud about the main entrance. I particularly like the way that the early morning light washes back off surrounding buildings to softly illuminate the intricate detail of this most magnificent building. This shot is intended to convey the quality of the work that is evident throughout the structure. (OM4, zuiko 135mm f3.5, f5.6, FP4 @ 125)

Beautifully metered and lit! I like very much the ethereal glow around the ornamental knob. Composition is great with all the detail neatly contained. Would be nice if the tip of the final E were in the shot, but as is, this is a grand representation of a grand building. Well caught!
