    Actually, the processing aside, what impressed me most about it was the perfection of lines. Whether this was achieved in camera or PS, it really makes it feel more like computer modeling, and that certainly works for a shot like that.

    The other one has a great sense of urban drama and style, good job!

    Thank you. :) I do quite like how the window reflections contrast with the building color. :)

    I like the tones in the second shot and of course the slow shutter speed.

    The second one is terrific, really conveys the idea of fast life in the big city.
    The first one is very nice but this pic really rests on symetry and, unfortunately the center axis is a little off.

    Sorry.
