I shot this for the Shades of Grey Challenge and ended up submitting another image. This building is currently used by the Art Institure of Philadelphia. I think prior to that it was a center city satellite for Temple University but way back it housed Westinghouse Broadcasting where the Mike Douglas Shows were taped (showing my age a bit...oh well).

I just love the light on this. The dappleas are coming from the windows on Liberty Place. Enjoy.

Nicely done, I like the light, I may have tried to clone out the stray line on the lower left side, but that is a small thing.

The hard metallic sharp edges, sharp and angular, contrast well with the softly curved organic shadows. Lots for the eye to enjoy here.
