Weird.
Concrete and glass, very typical of today.

Includes power-line transmission pole and wires,
also common today.

B&W presentation looks gritty, unappealing, somber, bleak, Soviet, Brutalist.
I can't get behind you on this image. It's depressing to me, makes me think of
the Soviet appeal of Perestroika, which ultimately failed.

I've read that some people called it catastroika.


I don't know anything. But I know other things.

That is some fine and interesting commentary, and captures the fundamental power of photography.

Thanks. It evokes feelings in me, to be sure.

Fundamentally, I was trying to say that I find nothing 'artful' in the building's architecture.

LOL, thanks Craig, it's funny because what originally caught my eye was the colour of the building and the relected colour in the windows as well as the diffuse lighting coming from behind it. There is no real way to get a shot without some of the street clutter in the image so I thought to frame it somewhat with the light pole and lines.

When I processed the image in black and white I just liked the way that it looked, like GlimmerMan implied with his comment, it's all a matter of taste and the fact that you took the time to comment seems to me that the image was successful in some manner (even if not the manner I intended...). Anyways all good, I appreciate everything you said.

Here is the original image before b&w processing:

Yes indeed, and for that much, I say "well done".

I was struck by the harsh starkness of your first image,
though it seems far less bleak to me in the color rendition.

Thanks Craig, after I read your first post I was walking my dogs and thinking about it. It occurred to me that some members probably expect to see images in this thread that are of interesting, evocative or artful architecture while other look to see interesting, evocative or artful images of architecture. It's a fine line and I tend to lean towards the second camp but I see the validity and importance of the first as well.

As I said before, thank you for your comments, they are well appreciated and they made me do some thinking (not always an easy task :lol:).

B&W for me...I am not a fan of selective color, or part of an image being black and white and another color, it is distracting to my eye. The B&W is very elegant. Was that the actual sky?
