Some of you may have seen this little mono gem hidden behind a technicolor version of this shot on Wednesday.

Most preferred this mono version, I did.

My laptop seems to have broken so I've nothing else to process at the moment, so I thought it a good time to give this an airing all of its own.

A square on shot is unusual for me, I like to get some angle on a building to show depth to the structure, but the lowry is just wierd enough to look good from any angle... and has a nice grate in front of it for a lead line!

My last day at work before Xmas too - whooppee

The subtle selective colouring makes this.

Much prefer the B&W version - the colour version is a bit toooo colorful for me! Pleased to see it getting an airing of it's own...

A beautiful b&w but I don't think the camera is dead center on the grill, which lets down this very geometric image, it's a question of an inch to the left but it changes things

Quote: camera is dead center on the grill, which lets down this very geometric image,

it was a bit of a toss up really,

get the building central

or

get the grill central

The grill is not exactly perpendicular to the building you see - so it's one or the other with this shot

Blame the architects Wink

They'll probably dig it up in a few months anyway.

There are two areas of almost toned light, one left and one right at the tall doorways? Intrigued me in the original and again here? Any thoughts. Mark you as your last day at work for Christmas you might not see this very well tonight.

I'd drink some water before falling into bed.

Like this Ade, the low viewpoint works a treat and the mono brings out the lines nicely.

Hoping to get down there tomorrow morning for sunrise. Got a few viewpoint that might be worth a try! Smile

Cheers, Sean

I have looked at both a few times now, I really like this in mono it is a great image and to be honest I am not fond of the colour version.

The mono really enhances the architecture and the geometry whereas I find the colour distracting.

I don't like the colour version either

But being the cynical type, I thought the masses on EPS would flock to a colourful shot over a mono one even if it was worse.

You see it so many times - awful landscapes, flowers and birds, over saturated, out of focus, 80 clicks.... so thought I'd see if a colourful shot of the lowry would do the trick

alas no - Its just that I don't click on photos very often any more I guess
