I thought this architecture shot looked better inverted. What do you all think?

I like it. I don't have critique for you, I am always thoroughly impressed by your work. I would like to see the original maybe after you get a few critiques :)

Thanks for the comments; I should have included the orig. So I edited the post and added it.

I don't think either are very good. B&W probably isn't the best here. The lines are confusing and I think there is just too much going on.

I take your point about being busy. I worried a bit about that too; but the business is all architecture so it hangs together in my mind, and that's why I like it. However I think vertical pipe on the left and some of the bottom could be cropped out. After that it's going on the wall as an A3 print.

I still like the inverted edit. Definitely prefer it over color. It looks a bit boring in color, inverted adds something and actually makes it a bit easier on my eyes. It's also much more interesting to me and I think people be more interested in the inverted edit if it's on the wall.

Inverted B&W. Props for seeing the possibilities and taking this shot. The color is not strong enough to add interest.

It has an infrared feel to it. I like the patterns of the straight lines of the wood and pipe on the wall and how the spiral staircase really pops in comparison.

I find the rope/extension cords/lights along the railing to be distracting to the point of ruining the whole effect. If you have control of the scene, also remove the ladders.

Without the ladders and ropes, it would be an absolute winner.

+1 on MattMorgan's recommendation to get it "on the wall."


1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Thanks. I agree the color is boring. When I saw this house I knew it was going to be b&w, the invert came later.

Thanks for pointing out the ext. cords - actually I didn't notice them. They are now gone; but I left the ladder. I cropped it a bit and I printed it on some A4 size Gekko Pearl Glossy paper which has a metallic sheen. I highly recommend this paper for high contrast b&w prints. This is my test print before I go to A3 for the wall.

Thanks to everyone for critiques and suggestions. This was fun.
