Sky and Signs

This is one of the views from Dundas Square at Yonge and Dundas Square, an area undergoing a lot of development right now including the new Metropolis Centre (right) which will essentially be a massive billboard holder, movie theatre, and shopping mall.  I've not gotten out to take photos in a long while and those that i've snapped quickly away on my daily commute to work havn't turned out that well because i've not spent much time composing the way I like. It's been very busy :( My apologies.

Post Processing: Two layers of the same image, one darkened way down using curves to bring out the clouds. Then the bilboards and buildings were erased from the darkened layer leaving the original.

There is something soo appealing about this image, I love the way the screen is framed to the left of the shot, the red really stands out and the sky really dramatic, even the building on the right works for me, all in all a very good good image

This really reminds me of when we were in NYC in February where all the glittery signs like this are, Sparlite. (Why can't I remember the name of that area in Manhattan!) The way you have processed this, with the background sky, really makes this for me.
Nice and very tidy work on the sky!
