By Paul65
This building's so big you can't see the top from this angle.

Were this me, I would have cloned out the building encroaching at top right Paul; easy to say but, looking at the 'flat sky as this size, it seems to be an achievable option here that (for me) would have improved an already impressive image.

I love the lines + shapes achieved by a clever angle of capture. but i do agree with Mike the building to the right does nothing for the image, and its a pity to spoil such a very good shot. - gary

Thanks guys. To be honest this was the questionable part of the image in my opinion too but thought i'd leave it in for comment - distracting building v's too much sky??
I've had a go at cloning out the building but I'm having some problems as I can't get the gradual change in sky saturation to match. In other words, you can see the join.
How do I get rid of this to make the job better? I'm using Elements 5.

Whoops! Sorry Paul - didn't see the question there...

Not being a user of Elements 5 I'm afraid I can't help here but might I suggest you ask the question in the Forums using a link to this image and calling out the concerns you identify above in your question.

This would be a useful and worthwhile exercise for many members IMHO...
