There are 2 twin towers and I was on the roof of one of them. Expect some more shots from the same perspective.

In the aftermath, they sat stunned. It had been a battle for the ages. It had drove through the city bringing death and destruction like none before it. Now, with skyrises flattened or gutted, with the fires finally only soot and ash, with wide swaths of the city leveled to dust and powder, they could only pick themselves up and try to begin anew.

Many thousand miles away, the battle that had torn the city asunder still raged. Mr. Fantastic and Captain Happy raged in combat. All their powers were brought to the fore. All their energy was released upon each other, and the areas and civilizations around them.

And all this over a pair of hot leather pants for sale at Bloomington's.

Your processing makes it look like something from a futuristic movie. Very dramatic.

normally i hate edgy hdr's like these, but i this case i think it works great, because it gives this cool sci-fi look to the picture matching the futuristic sky line. great perspective and comp also. 8
