    Had to go pick up my new semester lightrail/bus pass from the school today and brought along the camera, as always -- Only took 1 picture the entire time so here it is, the World Trade Center in Denver. That is all

    I feel like it's too dark, and you're trying to force the viewer to look at the crooked building :hs: my eye still isn't catching onto anything :hs:

    basically -- aint nothing in the foreground worth a shit -- this picture wasnt taken in hopes of making it straight or anything -- just something quick -- I liked the light and reflections on the building -- nothing else -- If i wanted straight I wouldnt have shot it at 12mm anyway.

    Side by side. There you go Hash Browns (maybe a little too bright, but oh well... 60 second PS job):

    like I said -- nothing there worth a shit -- hence why it was left dark

    I think the after one looks better, but needs to keep the windows from being blown out and just do a slight midpoint adjustment :dunno:

    Brighten up the street a little bit :dunno:

    The way that photo got edited almost makes it look like the lower buildings had christmas lights on them ..... which they didnt. Either way the shot was taken as a quick snap nothing more, no intention of doing some "great" just something quick.

    In all actuallyity I probably should have used a tripod and done a longer exposure overall and it would've looked great but it wasnt my intention with the shot. I walked out of a store saw what looked nice -- only had my wide angle lens -- took the shot -- kept walking

    damn straight lol -- Just didnt expect all this attention from a picture that was meant as a snapshot and nothing more. I also learned a while back that when shooting architecture/buildings you tend to want the main focus to the building -- and not the "junk" in the foreground.

    If I had to go back and shoot it - I would have been there maybe 10 minute earlier to get a more orange cast from teh sunset and would've used a tripod and gotten up a few stories to lessen the distortion.

    After looking at the edit again (that you did) I like it more, so I'm stubborn but willing to admit that your edit after looking at it a few times does look better.
