Excellent shot of the Burj in monochrome. The B&W conversion has enhanced the contrast between light and darkness. Looks like a rocket ready to launch, wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Impressive architecture as well as your presentation. The building in this b&w version simply shines and looks extremely elegant and eye-catching. Well done!

the building here actually looks like a spaceship about to take off, or some sort of rocket.
love the way it glows in the black and white version. and the black areas work just as well in contrast.
