    Took this one last week while walking by the place.
    Would love to hear some comments, tips and things to look at differently

    Not much cropping, just mainly darkening the blacks to get the foreground darker.

    Thanks for looking!

    Very nice picture, did you try to bump up the saturation a bit? I think it would be nice and more vivid.

    Thanks for the comment Al-Wazeer.
    I usually do bump up the saturation on most of my images, so I'm thinking I did with this one as well. Might have done some vibrance in Lightroom.

    Arg, I need to keep better track of my changes haha.

    I'll play around with more saturation and such and see what I can get, without making it too sureal.

    Great shot! The difficult challenge for that building is to isolate all the visual clutter and surrounding background from the building.

    I took a different approach, which is in my gallery. Not exactly ideal or what I wanted but for a grab shot given the limitations, it was at least "different".

    thats a nice shot in your gallery, thanks for mentionning it.

    I did take a few with only the multicoloured glass panes as well, but they didn't come out as I really wanted them. I'll have to try earlier in the morning (I was there around 5pm).

    I'd like to try and shoot from inside out as well, but I know the security peeps are a bit strict with photographers inside.

    Thanks for the comments! :)
