      Very interesting processing Joey. This has an graphic quality to it. It almost looks like a drawing. How was this done? It looks like the contrast is pushed, and then colours are desaturated. Is that right? I like the look. Works well with city shots. It's like an architectural drawing.

      Levels adjustment, bumped the saturation a wee bit, added a little contrast and sharpening. And I fixed the verticals in GIMP. I guess it's the bright morning sunlight that's hitting the building from the side that gives it that 2D-like quality.
