I'm not sure about the slant from the lens distortion in the distance and the fact the building doesn't look straight either. Both would be easily rectified in PS or something similar.

I can understand why you've kept the sky in the shot, but it seems to have been at the expense of 'chopping' off the bottom of the building and chopping the people in the fg in half. Maybe waiting until it was clear might have avoided this.

Maybe trying a slightly different view point, maybe towards the 'Nicky Clark' salon (no I don't go there lol, I was there at Urbis with my nephews the other week! Smile)

Sorry if that seem very negative, it isn't meant to Smile

Cheers, Sean

I like it even if it is a little unsquare, looking at this photo, makes me think of buying a Starburst filter, for that reflective ball of light at the top, I dont have one yet.
In colour, with your practiced sky preservation, that could have been a very effective addition to the shot. Chen.

thanks for your comments. The sky was the important factor in colour the building looks transparant I cropped for the building not the people (it was sat morn and packed) the perspective was used to emphasise the height as it was taken from about 20' away. Again thanks for taking the time to comment and view.
thanks I'll post a colour version
