A view from the second floor up to the dome of the Michigan Senate building.
The legislative power of the State of Michigan is vested in a bicameral (2-chamber) body comprised of a Senate and a House of Representatives. The Senate consists of 38 members who are elected by the qualified electors of districts having approximately 212,400 to 263,500 residents.
Senators are elected at the same time as the governor and serve 4-year terms concurrent with the governor's term of office. Terms for senators begin on January 1, following the November general election.
The House of Representatives consists of 110 members who are elected by the qualified electors of districts having approximately 77,000 to 91,000 residents. Representatives are elected in even-numbered years to 2-year terms. Legislative districts are drawn on the basis of population figures obtained through the federal decennial census.
The state legislature enacts the laws of Michigan; levies taxes and appropriates funds from money collected for the support of public institutions and the administration of the affairs of state government; proposes amendments to the state constitution, which must be approved by a majority vote of the electors; and considers legislation proposed by initiatory petitions. The legislature also provides oversight of the executive branch of government through the administrative rules and audit processes, committees, and the budget process; advises and consents, through the Senate, on gubernatorial appointments; and considers proposed amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The majority of the legislature's work, however, entails lawmaking. Through a process defined by the state constitution, statute, and legislative rules, the legislature considers thousands of bills (proposed laws) during each 2-year session.

You beat me to this state capitol, Mesut! Beautiful shot of the dome in Lansing, the capital of Michigan. The bright light from outside illuminates the scene nicely, and the warm colors of the dome itself are expertly rendered here. Nice angle to capture the majesty of the building. Thanks!
PS - I hope you don't mind my adding this to my State Capitol theme!

so all of a sudden you've become an accomplished architectural photographer! haha! :)
I wish I had taken this photo!
its wonderful how the scene seems to 'rise' up the frame, and gain height/depth.
lots of details, and attractive mixture of shadow/brightness.
keep it going

Hello dear Mesut,
a beautiful architectural shot with great dynamism and elegance, wonderful light and well considered framing. I like very much the perspective of the dome and the recurrent architectural and decorative patterns that you have captured so well. The play of light and the harmonious colours are most delightful and make the image very vivid. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Your short series about domes is interesting, and this one is most impressive picture.
Fine view upwards, good clear details and fine outside light gave the place it's grandeur.

Superb! Excellent result, although f/2.9 is not the best setting for a good DoF. But I like this result, well done, Mesut! Perfect quality!
