Not exactly your typical skyline, but I've been looking for an excuse to use this picture. I did this for a class assignment a few years ago and it was one of the few assignments I liked from that class. I love the inner and outer worlds feel to it; multiple dimensions. The process of adding texture actually became a little addictive. The instructor felt I hadn't used enough contrast or a full value range, but I still like the results.
