Boston Public Library

One of Boston's most famous buildings is its original public library. It is a magnificent building full of many gems. Across the entire front of the building, above its original main entrance, the stone is inscribed with the words:
 
"THE PUBLIC LIBRARY OF THE CITY OF BOSTON BUILT BY THE PEOPLE AND DEDICATED TO THE ADVANCEMENT OF LEARNING A.D. MDCCCLXXXVIII"

Walking through the doors below the inscription you enter into this beautiful hall.

Nice shot, lots of detail in a low-light situation. would have made for an AWESOME HDR. smile
Iain Myrans: Hey Sean,
This is actually an HDR shot, I just post processed it to add back in some contrast. I had to do HDR to keep some of the exterior details because it was so dim inside. The exterior lighting was so intense that even with two stops less exposure the outside was a bit blown out (the sunlight was also a very different colour temperature from inside). This is my wallpaper on my 24inch monitor at work and it looks really nice though even with the intense light outside.
