    @ shutterbug, maybe it was done on purpose to create an illusion of height? hence the caption of skyscraper?

    @DomCan: Hi DomCan, i don’t know why the idiots put thumbs down for you – can’t they tell you are not in Dominica? Well the Financial Centre is just across from the Ministry. The ministry/gov’t headquarters is still there and still in use. The Financial Centre houses offices to do with Finance, so that section has moved from Gov’t Headquarters. The financial centre is not that tall – just the view from below looking up.

    Great angle, good shot. You need to adjust your exposure because the sky is washed out and that causes the top of the building to blend into the background. Once again, good work.

    Sky scraper? This names throws it off. Just say something like “Financial Center in Dominica.” The remarks would be more positive. Most of us know what a sky scraper looks like. Nice pic though.
