This is an outtake from Curves - but I figured that the curves in the building (known here as "the gherkin") would be perceived as lines rather than curves. Big toss up between this and a black and white...but went for this because the colours are too appealing. A strong contrast b&w is fantastic and I should submit it but I fear colour will appeal to the voters more (sucker that I am).

PP: HDR from 3 exposures, sharpen, usm, border, selective colour, noise ninja, resize, jpg.

Love the way this looks. Beautiful color and the buildings all seem to complement each other.

You have some amazing colors here. I like the way you used the two buildings on the sides to frame the main building. Very cool shot. -BB

Slightly overdone on the saturation for me.

I love the distortion in the lens as it really adds to the odd shape of the gherkin...a very good image and the reflection is great as well...8
