    I recently visited a Baton Rouge landmark. These photos are all untouched small (2.5 megapixel) JPEGs, straight out of the EOS 40D, shot with the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.

    Exterior views:
    The state capitol building is an imposing edifice.

    Grand hall:
    I was quite pleased with how well these came out, considering that they were shot hand-held in a dark hall.

    Senate Chamber:
    This room was a dark hole with bright windows on the opposite wall. I used a bit of exposure compensation.

    House Chamber:
    The ceiling in the house chamber is made of bagasse, and is much lighter than in the Senate.

    Vista:
    The real reason to visit the capitol building was for the elevated views that it provides of Baton Rouge.

    Hmmm. Three and a half days without a single comment or criticism? Are my photos that boring? :raisedbrow:
