The slow shutter has really helped to produce a lovely sky. Great work.

What a fantastic sky you got here. The tone and the long exposure have made it really stand out.

This works really well, the warm tones in the sky compliment the red banding on the tower and the rush of clouds enhances the feeling of strength in the comp. I'm sure it's just an optical illusion but I'd be tempted to crop to straighten the tower slightly; it has an apparent lean towards the left side of the frame.
I'm surprised this hasn't got more votes, I wonder if you lightened the exposure a bit, maybe half a stop, without causing burn out on the whites of the building, whether it would get more impact? Or possibly cooling the colour temp a little to make the white bands on the tower more white and less rose-tinted? Just a thought because a strong, minimalist comp like this really ought to be getting more votes IMHO! Smile

What a novel spin on such an ordinary idea. I Like it.

Al, I must admit this is a darker version of the original, I was playing a bit with layer masks, on another version, I removed the mask on the tower itself and managed to bring the whites out better, but of the two, this version has seemed to be more popular.

Thanks for all the kind comments!
