This is the music hall building of Chicago's Symphony Center, adjacent the hall where the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs. The architecture in there, with its grand central staircase, is very unique and modern, while still in the Chicago style. What enhances it is the fact that you can hear the echo of musicians practicing their instruments in the various practice halls throughout this space.

For this shot, the white balance setting on my camera was set a bit differently than it usually is, and I found the result to be pretty neat. So I enhanced the temperature a bit to see what would happen.

Excellent shot of an architecturally beautiful interior! Love the lines and color on this one! I never even knew this hall existed, thanks for sharing this one!

I really like the yellow coloring. I especially like all the soft round curves, both the actual curves and those created by the lens.
