This building overlooks the entire downtown mall of Charlottesville. Everyone is wondering when/if construction will continue. It does provide some nice pictures in the current state. I adjusted the tone curves a bit, desaturated some color, and added a bit of split tone.

One of our local buildings is the tallest thing in town. Construction seems to have stopped recently due to financial issues. A building in Poland has been under construction since 1975 and got the nickname “Skeletor.” Hopefully this hotel won’t do the same thing.

I took this shot late one morning when the clouds were breaking up over the building. When I read the story about Skeletor I immediately thought of this picture.
