I was very influenced by an image done by Victor Servent whose work I admire. The similarities are the comparitive architecture in each shows a classic style, his is ancient Roman, by a modern style. I have done comparitive shots before but seeing his image help me see and do this one. So a homage if you will, to Victor.
This is a small portion of the Reading Terminal Building by the Aramark Tower on Market Street in Philadlphia.
Post: Layer adjustments for Levels, Brightness and Contrast, Hue and Sat. USM. Crop. Bump saturation and then felt it was a tinge to much so I desaturated a bit. A nit pf pin cushion distotion adjustment was done as swell. Resize. USM.

Congrats on the top 10 finish. I like the blue versus yellow, but the photo doesn't speak to me (sorry!).

Wonderful contrast between old and new, both of which are each complex in its own way.

Lovely architecture with great subdued colors agaist the blue-;oke glass. Bumping up on compositional value.

I really like this composition and the elements in the image. Great find - well done.

Excellent contrast in archtectural styles; If I'd been smart enough to take this I'd probably have titled it Yin/Yang

Good idea of composition making diagonal line. But hard copetiton here...

Nice juxtaposition

Wonderful composition. I really like how you cut the frame in half diagonally - it echoes the divide between the old and new styles of architecture within this city. I also like the two golden window lines of the new building - they definitely add to the overall pattern for me. This is one of my top 10 for this challenge.

love how you composed this making it more complex, great idea, nicely done IMHO!

Good juxtaposition of old world complexity and modern simplicity. Behind both is most likely another kind of modern complexity.

Nicely done. Old and new complexity.

Interesting contrast. I like the diagonal

Good eye, good composition, I'll be on the lookout now for similar photos to take. What hurts the picture though is the blurriness of the central dividing line created by the edge of the 'intricate' building. If it had been razor sharp would make the photo really pop.

Contrasting architectural styles in a very fine image. Quality is exceptionally good and fine detail without pixelation makes this one of the top images of this challenge.
