Converted from RAW, crop, curves, a little color shifting. noise ninja, save for web.

This is a detail from the Oracle building south of San Francisco in Redwood City. It's a mirrored campus of striking buildings. I went on a Saturday, when I had the place to myself. It was overcast; the building changes color, seemingly, with the weather.

I like the composition here, the adjacent buildings fit together nicely. The coloring in the photo, though, seems a bit off to me, whether it's over-saturated or something similar, I'm not sure. It looks very processed to me (there is a hint of yellow, for example, on the lower horizontal stripe on the left building, and I don't think it's belongs there). A pretty nice shot, though, on the whole.

I like it. A little sharper would make this more impressive.

Pitty, you are loosing some focus at the background. This would have been ideal for a crisp and sharp picture

Excellent conception. Crop down (or reframe) to the circular building.

very nice - I like the juxtaposition of the curved and angular shapes in an essentially monochromatic space
