    I shot this about 30 minutes after I shot the little girl biking, which I also posted here. The light was changing quickly, and a storm was moving in. I like the saturation in this one, and the spot of blue in a darkening sky...

    Cool shot. I really like the bright yellow building against the dark sky.

    I love it. Wouldn't change a thing. I love the proportions, the blue, the drama in the clouds, the symmetry and artificiality of the yellow building. Even the graininess.

    Well done! Yellow was the perfect colour choice. I love the patch of blue sky. The perfect photo would have that patch closer to the center of the frame. I know that cool light moves fast. I wish I had a dollar for every time I missed the shot because the camera was in the car.

    Let us know if the noise is due to compression or what.

    The photo has alot of 'noise' in it. What type of camera are you using?

    Nikon's D70... Some of the noise comes from pushing the saturation some. It doesn't really bother me much.

    The noise really does not bother me, it is really neatly framed shot with dramatic perspective.
    Well done!

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    actually the noise bothers ME :)
    Try something like Neat Image or even ps to clear it a bit. It is not a nice grain but a fake digi noise. Very nice picure!

    I'm wondering how it would look with more of the building in it with more focus on the building than the black sky. The colors work really well though.

    A wee bit more building wouldn't harm a bit but it's already a nice picture.
