What ewheeler said. Frame out the junk and it looks great. IMO, a less-than-perfect angle is better than clutter in the frame.

Still, it's a very nice shot - it wants to be on an office wall.

P.S. The green isn't too green... if anything it wants more saturation.

The problem with the greens isn't that they're too strong but that the processing has increased their strength more than the other colours which is a common problem. Ideally you would raise the saturation of all of the colours equally to keep a better balance.

Hi dan8238,

What is that first photo - you said a building, but I'm trying to imagine what sort of building (museum?) Very unusual design!

I agree - the clouds on the 2nd photo are very full of detail, nice! I think Martin Syke's colour brings a bit more punch and is a value-add.

Cheers. Thanks for sharing Alaska with us (brrrr...)
