    I don't live in a city with huge tall skyscrapers but even in a small town or city here in Vermont, there are ways to get some sort of a city architecture type shot.

    I like the contrast, but I feel like I'm missing the whites here...

    Looks way darker on the forum and on Flickr than it does in Lightroom. I'll make some adjustments and reupload it and I'll post a direct photo below (just in case the embedding is being funky).

    Hopefully this is a little better.

    I feel like it's ever so slightly off center. With this type of symmetrical shot it's throwing off my eye.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Nothing I can do unfortunately. I tried and tried and tried to get it perfect. I'm not sure if the building was even perfect, or I simply suck.

    I might just delete it honestly...

    The problem is that the left of the building goes down at an angle because it's on a corner of a steep hill.

    I mean, I'll try to mess around with the transform tool. Not sure if that will do anything.
