You've got a funky colour look going on in the one you posted to this thread: is that just the early sunshine or a bit of PS? I like the palette, reminds me a little of early Ektachrome that's starting to fade a bit.

What do you think of this guy's photos? He starts off with a great idea, decently executed (her eye is just starting to close, instinctively ), and then it sort of peters into a studenty, badly-edited collection of photos, a few of which are excellent and many of which show real talent. Just a young photographer whose stuff I came across a couple of days ago.
I hadn't seen his works before, thanks for the link though. I'll go through those pages in the near future.

As for my tower, it was taken at sunset. The shadow line just above the concrete and below the yellow stuff is created by the sun being pretty close to the horizon already. It just so happens that that wall faces mostly west. No PS in post production, just a touch of sharpening. Thanks for asking.
