I love this shot. Yes, it needs to be rotated about 2° clockwise, but other than that the lighting is perfect, the colors - blues, golds, browns and reds - are lovely, I like the repetition of the Y shape in the hand rails and the building. Great shot.

The weak link is the people. Since this is your university, I recommend setting up a tripod and seeing if you can get some "blurred people" shots, and/or people in better/more interesting arrangements.

Well done, and I wish my first post here would have been half as good.

Apart from the crookedness and the people, both of which Rad mentioned, there are a couple of things that slightly bother me about this. One is the reflections from the glass. The other is that the sky is so light compared to the rest of the picture - it unbalances it a bit, to my mind. If you have a polariser, you might be able to kill both these birds with one stone. On the other hand, you might spoil or lose the lovely warm colours that help to make the picture. (The light is absolutely key if you're going to re-shoot.) But at least the good news is that it doesn't cost anything to experiment.

It looks a tiny bit crooked to me...

As Emil said in Robocop:

I LIKE IT!!!

You are right about it being crooked, and I think 1/3 to 1/2 of the black on the bottom could be cropped. But other than that, I really like it.

Where is this, by the way?

That was also taken on the 24-85.

Umm.. it was at my uni, UNSW, Sydney Australia. In fact, if you refer back to the first picture, I was standing on the balcony just on the right of the first picture (behind the 'slats') to take the second one.

Taken at sunset, and deliberately underexposed to get the effect. The sun looks mysterious poking out of the clouds (at sunset!)
