I would like know how to improve this to the point that it would blow your socks off It is probably not a very popular subject, but there must be a way to elevate it a higher level.
I used a texture layer to break parts of the image, especially the shadows. I've also used a blue tint for the shadows and a yellow-orange tint for the highlights. Both these techniques have been used quite subtly, imo at least.
What I'm after from this critique is to find out better or different techniques, opinions, good or bad to improve this.
The composition will be improved once I can use a longer lens and take the shot from across the road. Currently there has been a car parked in front of the building for about two weeks.
Thanks for any help.
