weekly photo challenge: near and far

the reflections in the glass windows of this building make the clouds appear both near and far, while the sharp angles give a clear sense of perspective. kinda weird and beautiful all at the same time!

i thought i’d play around with this image a bit more to see what difference it makes to the atmosphere. 
the first image is the original photo, but with the contrast and saturation dialled up and some shadow removed (yes, my photo editing skills are strictly limited to iphoto i’m afraid!!). 

the second, in sepia, has had the colour and exposure boosted and shadow reduced. 

i think on reflection (ha ha!), i prefer both of them to the one i posted for the challenge and the sepia is probably my favourite. it has an almost fiery quality to it.

what do you think??
