i like the way the building penetrating the dreamy clouds.

nice choice, and nice scene.

Wicked! This shot is very inspirational to me. I love the tower and the sky is just superb..... I didn't really like the bottom of it though, I thought it was a little busy maybe?.?. Apart from that big tick, ten out of ten, keep up the good work tiger!

Oddly enough, I've taken a very similar picture of Wall Centre, myself. It came out a lot grainier than I would've liked, though, for whatever reason. (It was taken on film, not with my S40.)

As I stated below, Lynn, this is a fabulous shot! Congratulations on your ribbon! It's an honor getting a ribbon the same time as you.

Congrats on the second place ribbon. You captured this at such a dramatic moment. The sky simply adds to it. There really isn't much you could to do improve it except possibly removing the white part of the building that sneaks in on the right side of the photo.

Well deserved ribbon. =o)

Congratulations! It's great to see ribbons won with the Digital Rebel. It proves to me that it's me why I'm not getting any ribbons and not the camera. LOL!!! Congrats! Keep it up!

Congrats on your first ribbon! Definitely one of my faves for this challenge. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 12:03:53 AM
wow my first ribbon, thx all, it is the Sheraton Wall Center, for those who asked. I did think about cropping bottom half, it just lost way too much of the perspective and I liked the diagonal line. Thanks again, I am so excited! : )

Amazing Photo! I love the clarity of the building combined with the motion in the sky!

NIce use of a long exposure to create the interesting cloud formation. 9

Nice shot. I would have liked it even more if the building at the bottom had been croped out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 04:45:45 PM
this is one of my favorite photos in this challenge, nice , clear and sharp
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 12:25:54 PM
The title is very appropriate - the building just sails at the viewer and appears as if it will never stop. The reflections at the bottom were a distraction at first but seem to add to the impression of the building having a life of its own
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 09:09:32 AM
Cut some of the stuff off the bottom and I think this is a much more successful image. I would've just left the tower and nothing else. Great contrast between the tower and the sky. The sky makes the image and you did right by making the title describe the sky.9

Spectacular
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 11:03:13 PM
excellent capture. I assume this is a long exposure looking at the sky. colors are terrific and the shot is tack sharp with no noise. I really like the angle. I haven't decided if I would like this better or not if the reflection of the other building was absent, but either way this is a terrific image. 9

Ahh, the fas-moving clouds were definitely your friend. Great effect. Like the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 09:02:46 PM
What a very odd building, great focus though
Interesting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 09:11:40 AM
Wish I could find this sort of building near me :-(
It`s design must make it a very prized subject for photography.
You have taken advantage of it`s assets very well indeed and the motion blur of the clouds works very well with the overall sharpness of the shot. I think that the other buildings (in the foreground and to the right) help the composition by adding a splash of contrasting colour. Excellent shot..well done....9

I like the look of the skyscraper and the sky...very nice...but the bright center foreground is distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 02:01:50 AM
Not sure I like the angle you have the building at, but love the night time tonality, lines, cloud textures and little bit of extra detail to help give some size perspective! What building is this?

Very nice. Wonder if it would be better with the bottom cropped.? I dont know really, just a thought......great photo though. 8

wonderful angle, nicely done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 12:44:32 PM
I think less exposure, or darkening in the post processing, would have made this a more dramatic shot. As it is, the low point of view and the scattering of lights does make the menacing mood of your title and an interesting composition.

first place!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2004 03:07:48 PM
This is a very cool, ominous image! Might like it even better if the bottom yellowish glass structure wasn't visible. Sky is great. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2004 02:22:30 PM
Wow, great shot ! Is that a reflection on the right side of the 'Menacing' tower?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2004 12:38:57 PM
Menacing indeed! Fantastic clarity, especially for a night shot. Great lighting and composition. Did you use a long shutter speed to capture the movement of the clouds? The blur of the clouds against the sharpness of the building really makes this shot for me. And even though there isn't alot of it, I like the coloring of the picture! Great Photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2004 12:24:25 PM
nice pov. the look created is pleasing to the eye. this would probably be strong as a b/w too. Nice work.

This is such a cool picture - looks so futuristic - like something out of a star wars movie!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2004 10:13:07 AM
I love the perspective in this photo. The effect of the building against that awesome sky in the background reminds me somehow of horror films, don't ask me why (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2004 09:07:41 AM
Brilliant, great shot, really fits the challenge. This looks quite futuristic, the reflections on the glass are really nice too. The clouds add a nice extra touch. 10

i absolutely LOVE this shot. it feels so post-apocalyptic. the boxey building at the bottom is a TAD distracting, but the way the clouds are moving and the exposure and tone are stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2004 10:30:55 PM
Very well done. I'm guessing a very long shutter opening, in order to get the movement in the clouds. i almost feel dizzy looking at the sky, while the building is so still and sharp. Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2004 09:47:48 PM
Very beautiful. I love the way the clouds are in motion. Slight rotation to the left would fix the leaning of the building. Colours look very natural. Very nice shot.

Quite the dramatic colors! I love it!

Love the tones and the crop. Well done. 8 from me.

Great perspective! Very cool shot...though I may have cropped out some of the bits on the bottom and concentrated more on just the tower...8

I suppose that this could be menacing to some. I find it engaging and lovely! Very nice composition and super use of a long exposure to get the right light. 10
