The design elements of this building in its black and white version are awesome, Robyn. Great capture and work in PS. #2650937

interesting...the sort of image that would hang very well in a modern living room or open office space. I think you did well to use the long, vertical format. #2655917

Thanks David :) I think its growing on me more and more :)! #2655954

That is a really cool photo! The symmetry of lines and shapes in conjunction with the contrasts of B&W and chosen format makes this a classic in my eyes. Well seen and captured! Agree with David, could see this selling as a poster #2722961

Robyn Gwilt May 04, 2006

Thanks Lars. I think I'm going to print it, and see what it looks like and take it from there :) #2722991
