Utah State Capitol

The last place we stopped - OK, not really the last place because our guide still had to take us to our car - on our tour of Salt Lake City was the Utah State Capitol.  It is quite an extraordinary place.  From the outside, it looks pretty much like any other capitol building you might see in other states, but the inside is quite spectacular.  A lot of it is made of marble and there are these great painted murals of different moments in Utah state history.  It is really worth a visit if you get out there.

I'll have more pics of the inside later, but as you can see, this is the exterior of the building.  I think it's not as nice as say the Texas Capitol, but it's nice nonetheless.

It was a cloudy day which made for some pretty flat light, so I tried to punch it up a little.  I processed this shot mainly in Lightroom and gave it a split-toned look and the I added a little Tonal Contrast with Nik Color Efex 4 in Photoshop.
