Begun in 1899, this is our local county courthouse. The building is of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture featuring stilted arches and elaborate stone carvings. It was completed at a cost of $100,000. Imagine that! I duplicated the layer of the image, changed it to sepia, and then erased the sepia from the rooftop. Even though the building is a sandstone color to start with I think the sepia gave it a softer and richer look.

The red slate roof stands out so well. The sepia toned the look of the building down, and is in character for this building. The roof thus is a great focal point of this fine old structure...

What a grand looking place! I like the sepia tones and the red roof makes it really interesting looking. Good job!

ROSIDAH said...

I just had to smile. You are a little girl with a high tech box of crayons, and your coloring is lovely.

Looks like a church to me. Whereever this place is, it's a beautiful piece of architecural :)

Very powerful effect; well-done.

Dylan said...

Amazing work in those old buildings, even the type of day "overcast" adds to the effect of the shot. Great picture...

Mike said...

Not sure who's this quote is...

That red roof is so pretty with the sepia coloring of the "castle." It looks like a castle to me, anyway. :-)

I love buildings that were built around the end of the 19th century. We have some gorgeous architecture in Connecticut in the older cities and towns. I need to photograph more of them!

Gorgeous shot! Love the way this was processed.

Jew Wishes said...

What a beautiful composition, and the sepia tone gives it a classic look, contrasted with the red roof.

Mojo said...

Dial 1-800-SEPIA for reservations!

This almost looks like a (really really big) gingerbread house with the richness in the toning.

Annie said...

What an impressive building. Beautiful reddish roof.
