I've had my D700 for about four or five months now and totally loving photography!
This is one of the first 'decent' photos I took from the second time I ventured out with the shiny new camera.

Thanks for viewing.

Good shot, Steve

The problem with symmetry - if it ain't spot on it's very noticable.

Maybe a little more use of the recovery slider for the clouds, if you shot in RAW, but I like the reflections in the windows - nice exposure.

Thanks for the comments mate! :)

Yeah, it was really hard getting it exactly symmetrical, the viewfinder in the D700 isn't %100 and the 'crop' view isn't in the middle of the frame...

Anyway, yeah I knew that the clouds were a little too high but I kind of needed/wanted that amount of contrast in the edit.

In my own defence, they weren't blown out, I just pushed up the contrast in LR. *innocent* I say! :)

If I were a little better with Photoshop I could of had it both ways but alas...

Thanks again mate, appreciated. :)

I like how not only the clouds are reflected in the windows, but the sides of the building as well, which makes all the lines converge in the middle. Nice!
