A view of the Sage in Gateshead, taken from the Tyne Bridge looking over the rooftops of the buildings near Newcastle quayside.

I decided the B&W treatment would work with this image, just not sure about how much contrast I've given it. Too much? About right? Not enough?

Thanks to those who commented on yesterday's shot of the Sage reflected in a mirror, much appreciated.

A good image---the skys a bit "bright" at the back of the sage building,but contrast is fine thru out rest of the shot.

A good shot in mono. I might have increased the contrast in the foreground just a tad and perhaps reduce the contrast of the Sage.

It's a great place to take photos from if it's not too windy, it works great in B&W.
