Photographer's Note

The Treasury Building is concidered to be the best example of Italian Renaissance architecture in the Southern hemisphere. It was erected in three stages between 1886 and 1928. The material is sandstone.

In the 1890s and early 1900s the imposing Treasury Building served as a symbol of self-government and as a focus for celebratory and patriotic displays. The treasury building would be home to many government authorities such as the Registrar-General, Premier, Treasury, Security, Mines, and the Police and the Queensland Government Cabinet met in the building until the 1905. However, from 1989 the Registrar-General was the sole occupant of the building, as other members of the government had moved to newer, more modern, quarters.

Nowadays the building is used as a entertainment center by Conrad Treasury Casino and contains several bars, restaurants and function rooms. (Wikipedia)

In PP I warmed the colors, added some shadow and contrast and sharpend the photo.
