    With regard to the sky I tried may variations too see if i could reduce the grain.Itried variations in the brightness and contrast levels. The lighter sky had less obvious grain. Also blurred the sky and finally tried despeckle, but overtime resized the entry the grain became visible. This version was the best in my opinion.

    Nice leading lines - especially that s curve. The sky is very noisy but I think I like the effect here. In my tt.

    I have to wonder why the sky is so blotchy - it's distracting. The buildings seem almost grubby in part due to the lack of detail in the shadows. I have to wonder if the colour version would be more alive. I do like the composition and the shooting angle.

    The sky looks good on the thumbnail view. On the full-sized entry, it looks rather odd. What caused this? Is that noise or what?

    Very nicely done. I love the geometrics.

    I feel the full potential here is unrealized. The building is striking though uncompleted and yet the angle of this shot looks completely conventional and it needs something to really bring some punch to it. Maybe darkening the sky to make the building pop...

    I really like the subject, composition and B&W. There are some off artifacts in the sky. Still in my TT.

    Nicely composed, with a definite "bigness" to it. There's a sort of graininess in the sky that I find somewhat distracting.
