Inspired by Lovelife's New York skyscraper shot I had a go yesterday of a building near my home.

With photoshop magic I managed to make it look much more dramatic than it is!

Awesome series. I love the dramatic effect. #3 is my favorite. I think it would look good in high contrst black and white as well. Thanks!

Thank you very much!!!!
I felt changing the blue sky to black would add that little X-factor to them....:idea:

Did you use the new "vanishing point" feature in Photoshop CS? If so, how easy was it to use this tool?

No. I used Photoshop 7.0. I have not used the CS so can't help you there...though would like to try it.
In Photoshop 7 I am one of those trial and error people....just try different things and hope for the best! :-)

Jussi,

Wonderful shots...the angle at which you shot the 3rd one made the complete difference...Absolutely creative...and Black background surely complements the overall image...

Thnak you Suze and Arunpd....
I like the third one best too...it is the corners.
This particular building is an interesting one because it stands on its own in the middle of all low buildings so you can see it from miles away.
It is a "listed" building which means it is protected and any work must not change its basic look. And it can not be torn down like so many of the 60's buildings in UK have been.
To add to the strange story it was empty for around 20 years because the landlord asked for such high rents and no company wanted to pay so he took it off the market or some such story. It has been renovated in the past few years and has sprung back to life with all floors now in use!
