    This is a shot of the Crazy Horse visitor center. Taken near 8:00 pm. I like this one for the florescent lights in the building and the sky. I think I caught a moment in a generally lifeless building. I am not sure so let me know.

    As always the colour is a little curious. Tell me how that looks as well.

    1600 ISO ƒ2.8 @ 1/10th focal length = 24mm.

    I think you captured what you were going for nicely. Only suggestion I have is to dodge the sky, it's too dark atm.

    i like it naturally but i think the distortion is a bit bothering, the building is curved just a little bit and well i find it a bit discomforting. it may be solvable either by cropping or perspective adjustment in photoshop but that i don't know.

    also i don;t like it that the shot ends to t he left if you see it with a little bit of not white :D and i think that should be cropped out it has no reason to live :D

    you could also try a crop from about the middle up, it looks interesting.

    unfortunatelly, due to the high iso, editing is probably out of the question.

    and i also think that if you take at least that bottom black out the shot will look more ballanced. or maybe just keep a bit.

    anyway, i enjoy it and it looks to me more like storm, you know, like it's coming down on those unsuspecting inside...:D
