The old Alcoa building in downtown Pittsburgh, built in 1953.

Convert from RAW. Then in PSP X2, channel mixer layer, curves, brightness/contrast, Sharpen, noise removal... To apply sepia, I used a color balance layer and worked the shadows, midtones and highlight separately. This seemed to brighten it up and not make it so one-dimensional. Who knows how this will do...

I love the perspective and composition! The repetition also works really well. Nice.

Amazingly makes you look at it a dozen times to figure out what it is!

I think this is one of the better one's of this challenge, but for me, I would have liked a tighter crop on the right side so as to show just the building. This looks like a building that would be in a world where there is no diversity and everything is the same. Crap, does that mean since it exists that's how we live?

I wish you had cropped off the right side. Still a really cool shot.
