    Ooh, the sky is fantastic, and I love how the buildings curve into each other.

    For such an overphotographed building, I like this quite a bit. The contrast is really striking.

    Great composition. The sky rocks, though it feels a touch soft compared to the building. Mebbe just me. But that's hardly a knock on this dramatic photo.

    This reminds me of that movie where they have this building that agitates the sky before they can travel back in time........ wicked shot!

    Thanks all, this building has appeared in a lot of films, most recently someone dropped a nuke on it in 'resident evil', so it quite possibly might be Dav'd.

    Alec, I deliberately blurred the sky, I like the textural contrast :)

    You constantly produce high quality images and this is no exception. I like the PS work and love the composition and light.

    Miles - great contrast in this shot and good composition with the curves of the buidling and the clouds. It's also a very interesting building. Good stuff!

    Surreal indeed. Wonderful point of view here, and the tones are perfect. Nice one.

    You've got some funky looking buildings in Toronto. There are some neat patterns in the windows. Framed up nicely and the cloud effect is great.

    Thanks again everyone, it can be a little frustrating post vertical shots like this because I don't want to post them too large and have people have to scroll. I have posted a larger version for those with bigger resolutions, http://mute.rigent.com/other/cityhall_large.jpg

    Cheers!

    Beautiful sky! It's what an Ansel Adams would have looked like had he shot in the city.

    Dude it's like this isn't even real, it's a painting. Really neat shot.

    powerful and dramatic.

    not too sure i like the composition, the buildings don't seem to have any foundation to them, but that sky is terrific! from an abstract standpoint, the buildings do resemble the curved shape that means 'hurricane' on weather maps so that's interesting.
