My first attempt - Harlem empty residential at night.

Ok, so this was taken the other night. I put this in the Urban photo's forum as well, but figured I'd get some locals takes on it. After some advice from swivel (thanks again), I learned a few basics of photoshop and fixed it up a little bit (no major changes, just fundamental adjustments). He posted a touched up version and I tried as best I could to duplicate it. So, I'll stop talking, here's the picture and the adjustments I made to it. Please give me ratings and, if possible, as much feedback/advice as you can. I'd really like to get better at this stuff...

Thanks! It's on 140th and 7th, south side of the street. If you're familiar with the area though, nothing will look like this soon. Even across the street on 140 between lenox and 7th they've got something huge they're working on. Harlem is changing and is gonna be very dense and very diverse... I just hope that diversity doesn't take away what makes it great.

Very cool picture, but I would rotate it counter clockwise a little so that line in the middle of the building is straight. - Fool around with Photoshop for a while/maybe Google some tips and you'll get it down like nothing.
