That B&W one is too cool. It is so busy that it comes out the other side smelling like a rose. Nice image.

The color one pales in comparison.

Thanks!

I always have mixed feelings when I take photos of artworks, although they're among my best shots. I feel like I'm just interpreting someone else's work, not really creating my own. But I suppose that's true for many genres of photgraphy.

Verticals, horizontals, doagonals, parallels they're all in this shot. Love it.

I know what you mean. When taking shots with the Urban Fragments thread in mind, I don't like to rely on an architectural detail to "make the picture." A beautiful window or a cleverly designed fence, shot straight on--well, I'm merely recording it.

Nice shot. It has very nice tones.

Arctic wolf is good as well.

I like your conversions to b&w.
