  2. Great Shot! I really Like the effect you’ve created Scott. The reflections of the trees in the windows are a real bonus and add a lot.

    • Thank you, Chillbrook…seemed to bring out that “bureaucratic” effect.

  3. This building does look awfully bureaucratic! Beautiful shot!

  4. A strong image. It’s very imposing with the orange colouring – sort of claustrophobic. I like the way the trees are reflected in many of the windows.

    • Very nice words, Meanderer…nice feedback on the details, too. Thank you. 🙂

  5. Surely it’s not as depressing as it looks. All it needs is some bars on the windows to complete the picture. Hope it’s not the building you work in?

    • I did touch it up a little bit, Gunta…and it was just an old building down the road from where I work…not my work-place. And yes, bars on the windows would do it. Yikes! Thank you. 🙂

  7. That’s what buildings like that make me think of-bureaucratic red tape and needless hassles.

    • My thoughts exactly, Allen…royal pains in the back-side. 🙂

  8. Great shot Scott. Did you have to play around to get the exposure you wanted? It works really well with the red brick. There is a sinister, workhouse feel to the place.

    • Thank you, Finn…all of the effect was was rendered through post-processing. I was actually in quite a hurry returning to work on my lunch-time walk and just stopped and snapped a few shots. Tried to get branches in nice places, but I was on street-level and the building a bit higher than I was, so I kind of just grabbed the images and hoped for the best…as I hurried back to work. 🙂 And yes, there is a bit of the sinister, work-house feel.
