Bank building in downtown Portland. I spent two days just wandering around taking pictures.
"and i am nothing of a builder,
but here i dreamt i was an architect
and i built this balustrade
to keep you home, to keep you safe
from the outside world.
but the angles and the corners,
even though my work is unparalelled,
they never seemed to meet
this structure fell about our feet
and we were free to go."

Very nice shot. Amazing view and angle! :-) Gray tones are just a best solution for this composition.
Well done Jennifer.

The low POV in diagonal is very well chosen. The building is pretty much like the bankers: overwhelming.

Nice camera angle
Looks good in B&W

Great shot. I like the low point of view and angle of the building framed by the white area of sky. Nice tones in the stonework.
As an alternative crop you could remove the top bit of sky and crop along the left side of the building as its almost horizontal. This would then just leave a small triange of sky and all the converging lines of the building would point to the top corner.
Great as it is now though.

simple yet effective shot. I like it in black and white.

Great to see a Decemberists fan here! Nice shot, too. I would cut a bit of the sky. Nice work!
