    Hi John

    Nice capture. Could I suggest that you bring up the shadows a bit on the house and foreground area and reduce the brightness and colour saturation of the sky. The sky may have been exactly as in the photo but it seems too bright to me. Just my personal opinion of course.

    Nice composition and lines but those hotspots are really bright...

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the suggestions, I did bring the shadows up a bit will do a touch more, as far as the sky it was as I saw it, I removed the hot spots in Camera RAW but I can see what you mean. The brightness is actually what caught my eye, in the right position (my body to the building) the brightness of the sun flared through the windows and seems to reflect as if bouncing off a mirror. I walked past the building and the intensity of the sun was blinging and I returned to my original position to see if I could capture the earlier vision.

    Thanks Malcolm,

    I toned them down in Camera Raw as much as I could without losing the details of the foreground, I;ll give it another go.

    Sounds like a difficult shot to take. I think I would have made a mess of it !
