Sublime details and the reflection on the building makes it more dramatic. Where was this taken?

My entry to SWF, i was setting in the car park just waiting for sunrise and there it was, I guess luck was on my side that morning.

Alone Sepia, thanks for your input and suggestion on that one, I will try to incorporate your's and Scott comments on my next project. I am leaning toward what you said, Im a hobbyist and want to enjoy taking photos without worrying about any rules etc, but at the same time comments like Scott's are also invaluable tools of knowledge for everyone. Have a nice day.

Fantastic capture -- as always!! And there is that subtle ominous feeling about the monochrome! Love the cloud reflections on the building -- guess those new, modern mirror like buildings serve a useful purpose after all! Have a great weekend!

A beautiful sense of drama in this monochrome view of clouds hanging over the cityscape! And the touch of treflection in the skyscraper windows is quite magical!

This one makes the whole world spin... the clouds seem to move if I focus on the buildings.

The lighting is just perfect.

Real great shot. Lots of brick, glas and steel and still a wonderful sky. I think the black and white really does it.

Black & white gives it a different feel. Lovely.

Maybe it's due to the monochrome effect that gives the feeling of a storm approaching.
Weather these days..... equal nightmare.
