After seeing some of the REALLY unusual examples of architecture linked in the forums, I cannot begin to compete with those. However, I'm giving it the old college try with this strangely shaped bank building near my home. I have always wanted to photograph it for a challenge.

Shooting from near ground level from this acute corner magnifies the effect. Illuminated with flashes from both sides, purposely trying to achieve a degree of uneven lighting.

Awesome building and processing!!! I'm going to be a stickler and say that the crop kinda throws it off a bit, but i'd have to see the actual building to officially judge if it could have been done better... either way, you get a 10 from me =)

I really like the way you've captured the building, but I find the ghostly shrubbery off putting

Nice perspective and processing to create a dramatic looking image. I like the way the light catches the building too.

Not bizarre, but somewhat unusual, especially with the angle you shot at. I am being fairly loose with the challenge description, since not everyone has something totally insane near them. We can all find something a little unusual, however.
