This shot was interesting for a few reasons. To get the shot, I spent about 1 minute composing this and took one photo before security came out and started harassing me about taking photos of the building. I argued with him for about 3 or 4 minutes to kill time while I took more shots with my remote shutter release, then decided to go home. I knew he really didn't have the right to stop me, but I really didn't have the time to deal with the police on the night a challenge was due! I initially took this photo for the "From the Ground Up V" challenge, but the shots came back with some flare due to a cheapo UV filter I had forgotten to remove. Since that challenge was Basic Editing, this pretty much got squashed right there.

Very nice perspective, is that a windmill or flag blowing/spinning at the top?
