PPG Place, downtown Pittsburgh.

Convert from RAW. In PSP X2, separate sky from building. Sky got level adjustments (RGB and blue), curves, color balance, USM, noise removal. Building got levels and curves. Merge, resize, JPG. Something like that anyway -- cheap Corel software crashed a few times during the process.

This is a great shot. I'm curious how it would look in B&W. Not a suggestion, just REALLY curious.

I've actually had security people at PPG tell me not to take pictures like this (paranoia at its best...!). They got all worried when I was pointing my camera upwards at the buildings last time I was there. Gosh how I love the post-9/11 mentality!

Nicely done shot!
