One of the larger buildings in the Sandy Springs area of northern metro Atlanta.

Thanks for the votes. 5th place is my best finish yet. The original shot was rotated about 32 degrees counterclockwise. After straightening it and cropping, I added to adjustment layers. One levels and one curves. All this was done in PS CS2.

The shot was taken from a lying position in the building's parking lot with all the listed settings. ExpoDisc was used for the custom WB and the shot was spot metered. NEF RAW was used to store the image on the camera.

Again, thanks for the votes and comments. Criticisms are ALWAYS welcomed.

Man, I can't believe I missed out on giving this a score (I also can't believe that one person gave it a "1," and that another gave it a "2" [I'd've given it a "9"]). Among a slew of building-photographs, submitted in this challenge, this shot manages to stand out as one of the best. Great job!
