impressive sense of power...love that we can see a bit of the smaller building, gives the picture a bit of tension...

Obviously not the DPC eye candy, but an impressive shot none the less. Very strong mood and presence. Yes, some different PP would increase the mass appeal, but the essence of the huge monolith fighting a losing battle against the sky would crumble.

Nice, moody shot. Though this does fall outside the Basic Editing requirement, it would be nice to either lighten the building, or take down the sky so that it's not so overpowering.

Too dark and too low contrast. The shape's great, and if it were brightly lit against the dark sky, or dark against a bright sky, it'd be much better. probably bright against dark would be best, to capture the lines going up the tower, which enhance the perspective effect.

This is one where I'd love to see some post-processing and another version of it in your portfolio.
