    cool stuff!
    i don't like... the graininess
    and i would like to see some stuff in the reflection that's closer to the glass, that courtyard pushes everything too far back.

    but good job getting all the lines straight. and that's a cool view, not something you would normally see. welcome to the forum!

    kind of off-topic, but i wanna do my arky speech. did you know those buildings are huge environmental disasters? (the glass box ones, i mean). they reflect a huge amount of the heat and light energy from the sun onto surrounding buildings. when one of these glass boxes is built, pre-existing buildings sometimes have to paint their windows black, to block out the harmful radiation. if you exit a neighboring building at the wrong time of day, you get blinded by the reflected light. the new gehry building (steel, not glass, but similar in effect) is a recent example of this. it's burning up hollywood, an already hot place.
