Parking garage in downtown Pittsburgh. I fear some might see it as seven levels, but it's really six large spiral tiers and a roof.

In PSP X2, NI, channel mixer (boosted red, sunk blue), HSL for crimson appearance, curves, USM, NI again, resize, JPG.

POST: The "six" part of this structure is more apparent from a distance where the roof is more clearly incidental to the six concrete levels. But it took some doing to get a good angle on this. The color choice was probably kind of daring, and I maybe should have toned it down a bit, but I still think it kind of works with this. ALso, I didn't realize at the time that I could size this at 720/200KB.

Thanks all for the comments.

I'm personally fond of high contrast architectural shots. For comparison, I'd really like to see this also without the tilt or without the right hand building too.

i love the curved shapes and how they lead my eye from the top left down to the "PARK" sign - I am not sure about the tone of the sepia - a bit too pink for my taste, but it is a cool image

I like the color values you chose. The sky is a bit on the dark side for me, but otherwise a good photo.
