This is a truly amazing shot.

The lines on the right building draws your eye all the way to the top of it.

Only suggestion is to perhaps brush out the blue in the sky on the left.

Would be interesting to see a night version of this shot with lights in the windows.

yeah - this is pretty cool, lots of portential in modern architecture Smile

Here you;ve got the beauty of a very angular building and a ro9und one, adding a contrast to the shot.

A couple of ideas...

1, you've very little sky detail here, that's the nature of the beast unless you use grad filters or take multiple shots at different exposures and blend later. I'd suggest in this case taking 3 shots, each 2 stops apart, that way you'd get some extra light in the lower parts, which are dark, muddy and hold little interest as a result, and some more cloud detail to lift the sky

2, try a little more sharpening on the detail in the dark area, just around the lines, as that will help lift the structure out of the dark.

An alternative is to crop a bit of the lower part away

it's very visually heavy and takes my eye away froim the main event really. the ctop could be where the light diagonal at the bottom left starts, that way you get a dialgonal lead out of the corner.

BUT...

all of that said, it's a vey strong, striking composition and one I've enjoyed looking at, the lines on the right are the clincher for me

Cheers

A powerful shot which was simply asking for a B&W treatment. Mod uploaded
