    So I pulled this out because I still wasn't happy with it. The giant hole in the roof of the building, while looking cool, allowed a lot of light to get it. Regardless of the fact that it was cloudy and raining at the time, the sky was still blown out because of how dark it still was inside, and I had more important things to worry about than exposing for the clouds.

    So now, after almost a year, I decided to edit it. Again. I found some clouds on Flickr in the Creative Commons and went to work. Took a couple hours, and I'm still probably editing it right now as we speak because I'm not really happy with it.

    Anyway, here it is again, slightly new and definitely improved.

    As always, CC is welcome. However, it's an old shot, before I knew how to use flash.

    Very nice, good composition but I'd crop or clone out out the red material at the bottom.

    Good call. I think I'll just desaturate it though first and see what it looks like.

    EDIT: Didn't want to crop, and it looked weird in black and white and with a different hue, so I clone stamped more fence at the bottom, and took out a giant chunk.
