    Becky,

I am curious to know was this image straight out of the camera or was it retouched? Don't get me wrong, the reflection of the clouds is captured in the window panes tremendously, but it looks odd to my eye that the clouds extend to the bottom left of the frame (or was this only the top portion of the building?)

Curious to know....

Thanks for contributing to the BetterPhoto community!

Rob,

Thanks for the question and, yes, this was right out of the camera. The building is probably 10 stories high (or so...I can't remember for sure) and the clouds were not added. I am attaching another photo which might help put it in perspective a little better. I changed my position from this photo to the other and the longer telephoto compressed the perspective so the lower part of the cloud seems closer than it actually was.
