Post challenge
I took this shot at the end of May which didn't qualify for the June Free study so I ended up reshooting it...the day before the Urban Landscape challenge was announced. I could have reshot it again but I figured I had already done it twice so I opted to do an entry for the Rural Landscape challenge instead.

This is my second personal best in less than 2 weeks. Cool!

I think you're getting better. :-) But in addition to that, I think this is an excellent B&W conversion of a very striking subject. Very well seen and processed, and congrats on a good placement in a FS and yet another PB!

Great POV and love the reflections of the clouds. 8

excellent! the richness of this image, the richness of the tones in the reflected cloud, and the bold use of negative space are just perfect. Cloning out the cloud just above the building might enhance the graphic feel of the negative space, or it might not. 9 from me

Beautiful eerie glow, the reflection in the black building has a very ominious feeling to it.
