Thanks Dave. I never would have thought that the slight color differences in the brickwork would show up so well, but as I said before, the lighting just did some magic on this building.

Dave Chinn is exactly right, the download provides the best vantage. Nice!
Wondering how it might look with that black background you've used before.

Thank you rjay. It turns out the sky had just enough fancy clouds in them that I wasn't even tempted to try a low-key approach. I may have to keep that in mind though, as a rainy day project. I haven't done any of those in a while.

It makes you wonder what might have been in the void above the door.

Your conjecture is as good as mine Rich.

Very nice shot... I would have been tempted to correct the perspective distortion...

Thanks mallen. I learned to accept most perspective anamolies just as they are. If I align at all, with architecture, it's usually vertically.

Vertically is what I was referring to... I find that unless your view is looking up at arches and ceilings like in your previous posts, the converging verticals are a distraction.
