    Awesome shots. I really like the card cataloges. Though it goes to show how much more money is allocated for engineering programs compared to liberal arts or fine arts, eh?

    I couldn't pick a definite favourite if I had to! (Except maybe 6, I must say that photo is amazing). Every photo is uniquely beautiful.

    Nice shots. I'd stop down 2-3 stops to improve bokeh and gain some DOF on #4 and #7

    You've achieved some great perspectives; makes the building look very nice.

    My only question: what are those funny little drawers in #4? :lol::wink:

    This is a cool looking library. I love its architecture.
    And you captured it nicely.
    My favourites here are the "broad views" that so nicely depict the architecture, i.e. Photos 1, 3, 5 and 6.

    #5 gets a bonus point for nice lines!

    And I also like the shallow-DOF-close-up of the card catalogue.

    #5 for me for sure. I love the look of the air conditionar in the window through the window. #6 is a very close second though.

    Wonderful pictures...thanks for sharing!
