    Really nice work, Kelly! I particularly like the 4th, with the cloud reflections. Gorgeous.

    They's sure some purty igloos you've got there. I've gotta vote for the B&W one, though. BTW, #5 just tapped me on the shoulder and whispered softly "please mister...could I trouble you for just a tiny crop."

    Nice shots, but I don't see *any* igloos. Lame.

    #5 would be tough to crop....I like seeing the whole base of the building. I'd use a clone brush and just paint the sky over that stray corner of the building at top right. They're all nice. Now where's the igloos?

    They're all igloos, but photoshop does wonders!! I don't think there is much to crop off that one Nic

    I just mean the top right corner. A clone might be difficult given the changing tone of the sky, but could also be doable. I was just thinking that if you kept the current aspect ratio but but cropped the right and top sides such that the neutral coloured strip on the right of the main buliding was cut off at the same level as the strip on the left, thereby also satisfying my OCD requirements for symmetry at the same time.

    Wanna see something worse Nic? Look above the fire escape on the field law building. I love that shot, but the reflection eats away at my soul.

    Stray corners of buildings are one of the hazards of doing badass, looking-up, uber wide-angle, urban, architectural studies*.

    Assuming I'm looking at the right spot, it looks to be fairly small (at this viewing size anyway). A possible job for Mr Cloney McClonesville? Yes, I have no scruples. Clone anything and everything that gets in your way!

    Photoshop and Photoshop Elements have some "healing" tools that do a fairly remarkable job of smart cloning. Another alternative is to use a wee bit of the distortion correction tool, which would push the offending corner off to the right.
