I second Yo_Spiff's tips and would add that you should have played with aperture to get a deeper DOF. I don't like the OOF look of the building in the bottom of the image. Also, your image lacks white, the white on it is not white. But I love the idea and the composition. Hope it helps.

Responding to your "how do I improve?" post in the forums. I looked through your entries and found one that I thought had more potential, but as it is would have probably gotten a 4, or at best a 5 from me. Did my own edit on it. My major problem with it was I didn't care for the dim appearance and strong yellow cast to it. That may have been a creative choice on your part, but anyway, if it helps, the editing steps are in the notes.

I like how it looks like the lines have been drawn in the sky. The only nitpick I have is that I wish the clouds didn't have a yellowish cast. Still tho, an interesting view!

Great sky but the entire building and sky runs all together. Dark. I think it is the reflection at the bottom that is throwing me off.

Title could be less literal, but i love the composition, especially for this challenge.

This really throws me for a loop. I can look at the structure in two different ways and come up with 2 completely different forms. Not sure how this was done but you made me stop and look at it for a bit.

The coloring really works with this photograph. The title needs a little workish, :)but otherwise a good interpretation of this challenge.
