Award Shortlist

Originally colour, but given the treatment in photoshop. I may have gotten carried away with the unsharp mask-what do you think?

Lovely shot - great tone, composition, the lot. A superb addition to an already impressive portfolio.

Obviously the unsharp mask wasn't a problem! The composition is excellent and the brightness in the clouds above the centre tower is either a happy coincidence or careful planning.

Great comp and tones.Congrats on the award.

About that unsharp mask, it works well on the facia ,but the halo around the building is a little distracting.I think it would benefit being cloned out.

Nice Work

Stunning picture!
All OK with unsharp mask as far as I am is tricky knowing how far to go with it on some images though isn't it?

Congrats on the award well deserved.

As others have indicated, I think this could do with a little more PS work. The building itself needs to be given more contrast (the sky needs toning down).

A good basic image but could easily be improved further.

This is a terrific photograph. Full of drama (that sky is superb) and an exciting viewpoint. The colour of the toning suggests strength .. wow you do take some stunners don't you! Grin

This is amazing.
Power, authority, domination, retribution.

I keep expecting to be struck down!

Well done,

Yep! this was taken in a mall town called Sakai Minato. Most of the town is very low-key, but this building (ferry terminal) stuck out like a sore thumb.
