The Spiral  (1st place, Circles Challenge)

The Spiral (1st place, Circles Challenge)

Washington, D.C.

The incredibly ornate National Statuary Hall in the US Capitol. The House of Representatives met here for 50 years, but the shape of the ceiling caused everything to echo, making it hard to conduct business, so they moved out. Now it houses statues of prominent people from all the States.

Super shot of the ceiling. Good even lighting, very sharp, and beautiful graphic features. V
