This was done using the simplest of programs- Nikon editor. Increased the contrast, sharpened, sepia tones, then resized in PaintShop pro. I'll post the original later, can't figure out how to do 2 posts in one message, but frankly, having experimented and printed the colour image 8x10 I far prefer the monochrome!

The subject used to be Ottawa's city hall. It is nowa federal government building - reflected in the Rideau River about 2 blocks from my home.

The sepia image is very nice as is the color. To post two or more images in a posting, you need to host the images on another website and link to them. The forum software has no limit on how many links you can have in a posting. The forum guidelines still apply, however. (Exception for this challenge)

Intriguing image! Do you have a shot that shows the windows themselves, as well as their reflection?

On a less artistic, nosey-parker note,is there anything interesting going on in there, visible on the high-quality full-size original? (Shades of Hitchcock).

Thanks Minoltanut... I like it too. No end to the creative process!

Alan T, I haven't anything "closer" to see the activity, but it is just a regular government paper pushing office. The spy guys are down the road.
