I'd like your thoughts on these two. First one is partially inverted. Second is original fused in Lumix Photomatix from a 5-shot bracket. Lumix-GH3 ISO 200 1/1000 f11.

Very interesting architechture! You caputured it nicely. I'm on the fence about the guy standing at the rail though. I'm don't know whether he distracts from the image or adds to it.

Both very cool shots, agreed on the guy at the rail, part of me likes the addition and the sense of scale, other part of me says it would be ideal with just the structure. Been wanting to do more architecture shots myself lately.

I'd prefer if the person wasn't there. I understand the reasoning with scale, but I have an idea of how tall each of those floors are.

With regard to processing, I prefer the first. I like the warmer interior, contrasting with the blue sky.

I agree on the person not being in the picture.
I Love that first one! Great work!

Same feeling here - ambivalent about the guy.

Thanks for your critique. I like the warmer contrast too.

I like the tone of the first one more. I think if there was no person in the picture I would take one look at it and move on. The person in the picture keeps me captivated longer - it gives a sense of familiarity.

Definitely prefer the first one - warmer? Definitely gold tones on the glass. Very nice.

But both shots are unique and intriguing. Great perspectives, color, light.

Thanks for that Smitty. If I do it again I think I'll look for a red-head (female) for scale, but they are somewhat rare in Japan.

Thanks Dave, I appreciate your opinion. I'm going with the gold.
