Nearly there...

by matwhittington

A shot from yesterday of the Shard in London nearing completion. I believe this is Europe's tallest structure now. Can't wait to have a look inside it when it is finished. I did some PP on this using 'Topaz Adjust' which I have downloaded a free 30 day trial of. I quite like it, although maybe it's a little 'overdone'???

It is quite strong, but I like it. If you converted to mono, it would probably look like infra-red!

I was going to say, it looks as though could work well in B&W.

the cut sits perfect in the corner - the dramatic PP works well for me - dramatic architecture shot

Great shot - I don't think it is overdone at all. The picture has drama, impact and perspective.

I like the lead-in along the building and the almost surreal texture of the clouds.

Thanks all! I have been playing a bit with Topaz adjust this weekend and I have to say I really like it... I think I'll be upgrading my trial version in about 30 days...
