This picture shows the banking hall of the building I previously described with the picture of its top. This cathedral like banking hall is famous for it unique ceiling with its vaulted gilded moldings. It is modeled after Bath of Caracalla in Rome, This hall is a much photographed site in Toronto's financial district, and described in many ways. I like the story that the architect selected the shade of blue paint for the ceiling to match the colour of the shirt of one of his construction worker.

Beautiful architecture and presentation with a great architecture, well exposed the interior and ceiling, nice colors and perfect sharpness.

Great presentation, the split shot like this is perfect to show great levels of detail of the main hall and the central artwork. The colors are very regal, blues and greens, and I can certainly see this being inspired by a bath. How cool that you are allowed to take photos in here too, if this was in Dublin you would not be allowed.
Beautiful light and central composition in the left hand picture.
