Another shot from my trip to the college. This time I got in front of the trees and laid down on my back. It may look a little tight in the frame but I couldn't get any further back.

Really like the way the building cuts through the frame like an arrow. I don't think it's tight in the frame, it feels rather as if it fits it.

The best of the series. What makes this better is that it is a dramatic rendering of the building, enhancing the scale, angles and shape by the position youve taken, and the lens used. the distortions introduced by the lens work in your favour here too. I like the warmth of the evening sum on one side, and the blue tone of darkness encroaching on the other side. Im not sure if you have added some blue to the clouds or they were like this, but would think a little less in the clouds might look better, while retaining it in the building.

Building like this, with lines and sharp angles, are well suited to mono, so I suggest you think about that and have loaded a mod.


Regards


Willie

Thanks Willie, I was actually going to delete it as I thought it was overcooked in processing and it has a distinct cyan cast (pointed out by NewmanP on the previous shot). I was just working on another version where I have adjusted white balance (reaping the benefits of RAW). I had a go at a mono conversion but I wasn't too sure.
Cheers,
Phil

Phil, - if you used the Topaz filter on this it might introduce the cast?

There is a cyan cast on the left, but it looks like its perhaps a result of the light on that side of the building?

You could be right Willie, it has almost certainly made it worse, but there is evidence of it in the RAW image.
Cheers,
