Inverted Curve

Congrats to all of the finalists and winners this month.
My time on BP will be sporadic but I will keep up with your images as much as I can this week.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.
:-)
Oh - BTW, this is the result of my playing around with the first image I took with my new camera....let me know what you think. Does it work or are the effects too grainy?

Very cool curve here... what building is that in the background... waterfront place?

You need some photos of the new Riparian Plaza... it is your city's first 200m building!

Keep those building photos coming!

I liked the original, but I think this actually looks MORE natural. The "grain" doesn't bother me in the least, although it might not be so attractive in a print.
So, like all your other admirers, I think this works very well.
