The old mill
I posted a picture of the old Hayden Flour Mill in Tempe, AZ a while ago, but it didn't have sky like this behind it!

The plane is an America West Airlines 757 coming into PHX Sky Harbor International.

Geez, anything that spectacular should be illegal--Really nice timing!

For a moment, it made me think of 9/11! Gorgeous shot. It's probably an integral part of the building, but for art's sake, I'd clone out the cables or whatever those things are that shoot out from the left side. Also, the half-seen tree bottom left.

This picture kinda bothers me because it feels like that building is falling over. Try to rotate the picture so that the vertical lines are actually vertical.

Other than that, it's great!

I think it'll require more than just rotation to do this. If you look at the right side, then the left, you'll see what I mean. Rotate it so the right side is vertical and the left side will be at more of a slant. Maybe the Free Transform tool would work, particularly since the distortion isn't all that much in this photo.

The palm trees really aren't straight, so this is one of those photos in which it's impossible to make everything vertical.

I think it would look better if the palm trees were conifers....

JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice job with the cloning.

Right on the money.

Pay no attention to Ohenry. Conifers would be all wrong, but poplars, on the other hand...

I've been summarily dismissed again.

nice shot and even better with the post production work. What is the deal with the sky? Was that the original or did you place it
