The first draft

By JackAllTog      
The Gherkin tonight in London from Bishopsgate, I liked the shapes and perspective combining together.
As colour was not adding to the shot i went B&W.
The odd fade out shading was from a dummy hdr profile in LR where contrast and clarity were maxed out, then applying a white vignette of 12 seemed to start eating into the black in quite an unexpected way. (V2 is the same with a 0 vignette if you wanted to see).
The title is because it looks a bit sketch-like and perhaps a bit phallic in the early stages of a design to improve on.

I really like the accidental version gives great emphasis to the Gherkin
