Nice shot, I know this building well as I have had antennas installed on the rooftop, yet I have never stood outside and just looked up. I will next time I am in London. You should share it with the Sifton family who own this building, they may buy your print.

Congrats on the blue ribbon Peter. You had me confused though, this looks like the gold RBC building on Bay street in Toronto :)

Nicely done! And how weird is this...not 24 hours ago, I was Google street viewing this building, and I had no idea why.

WD! I didn't realise sepia could look orange? And yes my monitor is calibrated...

If only the tree in the upper left corner was gone, this shot would be perfect! It is very distracting.
However, since this is a Basic Challenge, there really isn't much you can do about it unfortunately.
Very dramatic, very cool shot otherwise! 8

Lovely image, really good PP, colours, contrast, very little if any visible barrel distortion. Only fault, those damn branches top left. 9.
I hope to see your PP techniques at rollover to see how you got the orange sky. GL.

The sepia works well for this, which I find surprising. I don't usually like sepia tones with such modern subjects.
