The RBC Building - West side.

I found this perspective more interesting than the normal bottom-up view. (see one of my outtakes)

WOW, less than 20 min for rollover and this is making a new PB (unless the scrapping works backwards...)

Good work gg.
I work right across the street and look at this building every day, but this puts it into new, nicer perspective

As usual, I am the only one anal enough to see compression artifacts. Congrats on the HM.

Tons of visible JPEG compression, though I am not sure how, as your filesize is 141k, which should be sufficient for a nice smooth image. It is possible that you could have been saving your working copy as a JPG. Repeated opening and resaving of a JPG could cause this. Always save working copies as an uncompressed format, such as TIF or the native file format for you photo editing application. (Such as PSD for Photoshop or PSPIMAGE for PaintShop Pro)

Looks like golden glass stairs. Good idea. You have got an eye. This picture has a lot of potential. I imagine it with dark blue sky or at night. Very nice. Good luck.

Nice perspective with a somewhat unusual but very effective composition/framing. The gradation of color really makes this an excellent image. Could you have lost the solid portion along the top edge? 8

We have buildings pointing ever which way in this challenge. Err... AH... I think it's a building.

It would maybe have had more impact if it was rotated 90 degrees anti clockwise

Very cool - I like the way it moves from concrete (literally) to nearly transparent, almost sketched in nature. Very nice interpretation of the challenge.

Great colors and good focus. Wish the left-hand building/structure wasn't there. I love that building.. got a similar shot when I visited Chicago.
