At first I thought this shot was a failure. I had used a GND filter on a Cokin filter holder. At 10mm the lens actually captures the holder it self and it also creates alot of vignetting. But after looking at it in my PC I realized that if I cropped out the filter holder the vignetting was helping this image by focusing the viewer towards the building and the reflection.
