An excellent mono. It has a quite apocalyptic look to it.

An excellent angle on the building, long exposure works well and in mono you've nailed it.

Congrats on the EC

Hi Billy,

Have you dropped the sky into this shot at all? It's just that from this angle, I'm pretty sure I remember the Crowne Plaza hotel being in the background. I'm not trying to catch you out or anything, I'm just curious - it's still a lovely shot regardless.

Michael.

I was thinking the same thing about the sky....but only because the shutter speed is 1/80......definitely faster than that used in the image.
Agreed though...excellent photo.
