The Corn Exchange, Leeds, UK

Today's photo is of The Corn Exchange in Leeds, England (click to enlarge). Built in the mid 1800's, the building was originally used as (surprise) a corn exchange. It was converted into shops in the 80's (fetching a strong patronage from counterculture clients) and is currently being renovated (i.e., ruined) into a food plaza. It is a beautiful building.

Fantastic shot. I take it this was a very wide-angle lens?

Indeed, it was -- I use a Canon 10-22mm lens on an EOS 20D. :)
