I dedicate this to the guards of One Oxford Centre in downtown Pittsburgh, one of whom came up to me as I was shooting this and asked, "Can I help you?" When I asked for a tripod, he escorted me off the premisis. Well, it didn't go quite like that -- but I was told I needed management's approval to take pictures. At least I got a few shots in.

Convert from RAW with EC down -1 and a color balance adjustment. Then in PSP X2, channel mixer (sunk blue, boosted green), levels, curves, resize, USM, JPG.

LOL! Love the comment about the tripod. I think I'm going to get a shirt made that says "I'm a photographer, not a terrorist!" or something to that effect. Probably won't help, but eh... Anyway, glad you got the shot and I always appreciate reading your details to see how you've processed things, so thanks for adding that info!

This is a spectacular composition--all the edges and corners are just right, and the placement of the tops of the skyscrapers is perfect. You have certainly accomplished "contrast" in this, as well. I think it might be possible to raise the values across the entire image, still have dynamic and interesting contrast, and a little more "snap" to the image, too. But being wrong is one of my 'strengths' and this is great just as is. 8
