interesting capture and presentation in monochrome. You did it nicely which enhance the graphical impact. Very good presentation in vertical. Superb work Brian.

the picture which stands out of the crowd. Very appealing perspective and angle you took this photo at. Well chosen POV and format of the image. The lines of the balconies cut through the composition in perfect proportions.
I like the sharpness and well given contrast too.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

This is a beautifully and very accurately composed image which just works so very well in black and white, what with the strong light, strong tones and strong contrasts.
A perfect depiction of this nice piece of Art Deco architecture, taken from a very pleasing angle and with your usual impeccable attention to exposure, details and sharpness.

You have created a fine mood with the black and white conversion. The perspective is indeed excellent resulting in a splendid graphical composition that echoes the Art Deco style perfectly.

a good lesson here in composition where you have used the vertical corners ever so well so that those lovely lines lead right into the frame.
With a good range of tones and graphic lines it`s a fine subject for your mono treatment.
Have a good week,

Whoa, what another fantastic illustration of perspective...you have the eye alright, and unlike the buffalo, yours is better suited to envision these compositions to perfection. Probably just as red though from the night before, yeah? ;)
This one leapt off the pages today with such sleek lines and ample curves. (Insert own joke here) The black & white plays up the heavy sky and wispy clouds in wonderful contrast of shade and element. B-e-a-utiful! You sure know how to take advantage of a nice day outside, this is great. Enjoy the new one ahead. Take it easy partner.
Cheers from the 48th state,
You're creeping up on Az. weather now...what's going on with mother Nature, she can't seem to make up her mind!? Don't forget the sunblock.

Très beau noir et blanc avec une super composition très graphique et un très beau rendu des gris, noirs et blancs.

excellent depth effect with these lines, good version in b&w to give strong contrast, interesting architecture.

Indeed, fantastic POV and presentation in monochrome. Interesting even in thumbnail. Great job.

you do not post too often B&W,but when you do it I´m really impressed by your superb work!
First of all I like the way you used here the edges of the Pavilion to create so eye-catching long perspective and depth of the scene.
Second thing is the light and how perfectly you´ve managed to master the contrast between particular parts of the image(very dark sky contrasts here magnificent with white facade!).
Have a nice day

Hi Brian - This works well in B&W, the composition is precise and disciplined, which I think, is important in a shot like this. The graphic lines are the main feature and any sloppy composition would detract from the power of the shot. Immaculate work and indicative of a clear idea of that which you intend presenting after PP work.

Great black & white architecture picture!
Other highlights here are the vertical format, composition and exposure!
TFS - congrats,

sorry for not getting to alot of your photos recently, I feel as if i've missed so many of them - havn't been as active on TE lately.
But rest assured i've been enjoying them all.
I chose this one because of the long perspective, and the contrast between the straight lines and curved lines.
the black and white contrast works very well too.
striking visual, it hit me right away in your gallery.
take it easy!
