Keitha, I like the perspective on this one. It almost feels like the building is twisting under the pressure of the dark clouds. Very nice capture.

Lighting that Ridley Scott would be proud of Keitha.

Fantastic shot

You are able to effectively use angle and lightings to your advantage

I admire your skills

Thanks, guys! The weather was perfect for this kind of shot yesterday. In fact, the sun came out at one point, casting these tree shadows on the building, and I was praying that another cloud would blot it out

And many thanks to my boyfriend, who brought me to this location after I said I needed to shoot a building facade that was long enough for me to do two side-by-side shots

Superb photo, Keitha.

The lit window panes on the left of the shot in contrast to the others really do make this image sing.
