Short description from the website waymarking.com:
The Delaware Legislative Hall is the state capitol building of Delaware located in the state capital of Dover on Court Street. It houses the chambers and offices of the Delaware General Assembly. This building was dedicated in 1933 when it replaced the Old State House, which is now a museum and located nearby. Additions took place between 1965 and 1970 to give each state legislator their own office.

I like your composition very much showing the beauty of the architecture where the beautiful steps add rhythm to the shot. But the colours are somewhat strange, guess it is a HDR shot, but if it is so, you have handled the level just perfect adding a special atmosphere, kind of eerie to me, but still beautiful.

Very nice house this Delaware captitol indeed. Great how the staircase is leading us up to the entrance and the building itself.
Did you desaturate the sky and the tower or was it really that monochrome up there? Anyway I like that brooding sky very much.
have a good sunday

Very nice viewpoint on this fine architecture, the stairs lead perfectly up and into the picture. I agree that there is an eerie feel to this, the building could be the centrepiece for a horror film. Beautiful architectural take.
All the best

Hi Gregory - you and I just missed each other in Dover! I visited Legislative Hall on the 14th - #19 in my attempts to get all of the State Capitols. You had much cloudier weather than I did, but you put it to good use here with what I assume in an HDR shot. I like the angle a lot - sadly when I was there, vans were blocking the stairs somewhat so I couldn't get too close, but I'm glad I saw this one.
I've added it to my State House theme. Thanks!
