The Woburn Public Library is a building with an interesting history. Built in the late 1800s by renowned American architect H.H. Richardson (also partly responsible for the New York State Capitol in Albany, NY), it is now a National Historic Landmark and a centerpiece of Woburn's picturesque town center.
Richardson is also responsible for my favorite building in Boston, the Trinity Church in Copley Square. I don't yet have a really good shot of Trinity, but here is a nice one from almost 5 years back of Trinity reflected in Boston's John Hancock Tower.

You give us an interesting glimpse of the architecture and also managed to have a jet stream roughly going parallel to the roof. It's funny how a thin white line could mean such a lot to the composition.
Have a nice weekend,

The golden brown tones of the architecture make a splendid contrast with the lovely blue sky behind. I like the unusual angle of view and framing; it makes excellent use of the graphical lines offered by the architecture.

I like this upward and close-up perspective you used here.It presents us excellently the beauty of the Woburn Library.The other thing I like is the soft,warm light and the way it illuminates so lovely the old,stone walls of the building.
Have a nice weekend

I like the play of lines and intensity of colours, this unique building makes a very eye-catching picture. The compo is well worked out to extend the perspective and depth. Work of art with geometrical effect so well captured indeed. And you have the extra line in the sky too! Great observation and nicely taken. TFS
