    Is this a crop? Something doesnt look quite right. I cant put my finger on it but other than the blown lights something isnt quite right.

    It's not a crop...def agree with the blown light and def could be a lot clearer. The court house is across the street from my college; and had my camera on hand..so I just decided to take a quick shot; cuz it was really cold out. I"m gonna try that shot again with a tri pod.

    How much PP work did you do to it? Could be sharpened and a little more contrast added. Play around with it.

    Oh, I like the new watermark.

    Yes, and it's a good shot, but you should try a longer exposure and a narrower aperture.

    It's the wrong time of night to take that shot, IMO. YOu need to do it earlier so there is more ambient light. That way the difference between the street light and the building in close and you can get both to register without clipping the street light. Also, that way you would have some kind of sky for a background, instead of boring black. There's a very sweet spot for building photography with constant light sources in the picture where the fading daylight and the constant light balance perfectly. Same deal with trying to capture Christmas lights and such.

    I find the foreground isn't lending much to the image. Some street, bushes... nothing really interesting.

    Have you tried crossing the street, getting closer, maybe even in front using a wide angle, aiming up....
