Who could not be impressed by the sleekness of this building and this shot! You have created a wonderful abstract pattern of geometric shapes, light and shade.
Have a great week,

oh I do like this,viewed at full size it is absolutely stunning,imaginatively composed with a top class range of tones it`s fine photograph perfectly suited to your mono treatment.
I wonder if a very small black border may have helped to define the edges?
Have a great week Les.

You have made excellent use of the strong graphical lines formed by the architecture to create an image full of graphism. I like the framing and the use of black and white, both of which help concentrate the attention on the subject.

This is like an artistic poster with special effect, it looks graphically and futuristically, very well composed

Excellent jeu de lignes et de courbes dans ce noir et blanc très graphique.

Lovely architectural abstract with so many shapes and patterns to look at! Wonderful shades and contrast best presented in b&w.
Have a nice day

Good tonal range with clean blacks and whites and nice repetition of geometric patterns and shapes, with good sharpness. The strong diagonal line adds dynamism and the sleek curves enhance the composition. Nice reflections to add to the effect. Tfs!

une superbe composition graphique avec un bon choix du N&B. Très réussi.

Holy moly Batman, this one's a cracker. I adore the monochrome treatment here. It's artistic and so highly effective in demonstrating the beautiful graphism and contours of this modern architecture. I actually prefer it to your preceding colour version of the building. And yet the B7W only gets 22 points, where the colour version gets 50. If ever I saw proof that monochrome doesn't score as well as colour on TE, this is it. But who cares, please keep posting this type of stuff, it's in a league of its own.
Have a happy Friday, my dearest landlubber
