If the image were mine, I would probably try to open up (a tad) the left hand side. I say a tad because I suspect you would want to maintain the moodiness of the piece. Have your explored converting this piece to black and white. For some reason I visualize in my mind's eye a 'film noir' feeling in black and white.

I can certainly see why you were drawn to photograph the scene, the wet sidewalks really adding to the mood of the piece.

Thanks for the suggestions, Sue! I'll try and see what a conversion brings to it. I try not to change the dynamic range of images, to preserve what attracted me, as you observe. :cheers:

It makes me feel like I'm there.

I was thinking maybe I'd want to see a little less foreground, that car towards the front is a bit boring, then I decided no I don't think that's it. Then I left the room and coming back to the computer from a distance I noticed how dark the left side of the photo is - maybe a little too much so. I'd think about a little adjustment or trying a bit of a crop maybe of that side of the photo; as interesting architecturally as that building is, it's not that noticeable because the sun wasn't hitting that building.

I really like the perspective you get in photos like this.
