There was a bit of a discussion last night - Version 1 versus version 2. It was split exactly along the right handed versus the left handed - I would be interested to see if it follows suit.

When I viewed this on the back of the camera I nearly deleted it, however with a little bit of work I think its OK - its certainly how I previsualised the shot - not one for the purists, converging verticles and the like.

EDIT: When previewed the border looked great - after upload looks to be skewed (could be this monitor...goes away to check on laptop)

Big thanks to Jackofalltrades for the Guest editors award on the last image Smile

Works for me Nick, good details and like the slow shutter speed to get the cloud movement

Cheers Richard.

Re the border issue mentioned in the description, on the laptop it looks as it should, I wonder if its down to the screen resolution on the main computer (I've seen it before on images).

Pure quality. I love architectural images that push boundaries and this ticks all my boxes. Wonderful mono with gorgeous hint of a blue tone. Wonderful work.

Thanks everyone - David, well spotted about the tone, I've been experimenting a bit with toning recently, I wanted an almost inperceptable level of blue in the shadows, to try to bring out a metallic feel to the structure.

Excellent viewpoint and composition, Nick, definitely suits mono. After much toggling between the two, think V1's my fave Wink

Liking this a lot Nick but perhaps a little restrained.

It would work well with a steely curved duotone going on , that hint of blue is a little to subtle for effect.

Its asking for more dynamic contrast (not that its flat) and (without the exif) either a slightly shorter shutter or a tad less motion/Gaussian blur for the clouds to work.

Just a thought Smile

Thanks everyone.

Some great feedback there Dave, I've marked as constructive so hopefully it should turn green shortly.

Edit: Blimey that was quick (turning Daves feedback green)

Hi Nick, awarding this with my 'Photo of the week'.
Really like architectural images, and something a bit different.
This works really well, and I agree with Dave, a duotone would look good on this.
Great POV, love the shapes, well done!

Thanks Tony its really appreciated, i agree a shoguns may work (there is a slight tone already). Just need to read up on them (never been happy when I've tried them before).

Forgot to get back on this re the original blurb. I too preferred v2 (I'm left handed), but all the right handed people I showed it to preferred v1.

I may re-do this using v2 with a duotone as suggested.
