This is a building near the Brayford Pool in Lincoln, which you can't actually go into. I just thought the spiralling stairs were interesting, even though you can't get up them!
I'm not sure why so many of my photos are in black and white, I find it quite hard to see a photo that would work in colour, but I'll try my hardest!

There is nothing wrong in working in Black and white. This shot you have put up an excelent one as it lends itself to the Monochrome treatment. I like the composition.

Some of the very best photographers worked solely in black and white e.g. Ansel Adams. This is a good composition but don't be afraid to increase the contrast which I think would benefit this one.

Those of a certain age, my self included , only had Black and White available till Mr. Kodak brought out the first colour film.

Fine work

Hi McKenna, this is an excellent shot. Agree with the comments above, B/W is the medium to use when you just want the shapes and tones to speak for themselves. This image would have had far less impact in colour so you made the right choice. Great work. Bryan
