Lippo Centre

This shot, in parts, is showing the Lippo Centre building, which is likely to be the most futuristic building on Hong Kong Island. Seen from the outside, this building seems to be entirely made out of highly reflecting blue windows. You can see some of its crazy style from the reflection on the orange building (can't remember what this one was) in the background.

Post processing started with a major perspective correction, in order to get lines vertical on both buildings. Additionally, I applied slight tone and contrast mapping as well as "minor" adjustments of the image's saturation. For a while I thought about recolouring both buildings in orange and blue respectively - in the end, however, I decided to stay with the original colours I got out of my RAW file.
