Media City

A fleeting visit.

I'm experimenting with a few things at the moment, trying new workflows, with a particular project in mind.

this is a completerly different workflow for mono's for me. Not bothered about votes just honest feedback. I won't say what I've done & why until the feedback is in so as not to influence you.

I'll be interested to hear workflow details - this has an almost eerie coldness.

To be honest I am not use where this work yet Nick, to me the foreground with its strong texture and details almost looks to be part of a different image and I find me eye draw to it and away from the rest of the image.
Also for me the area around the sticking up part of the two smaller rings need to be darkened as it seem to be slightly brighter than the rest of that area
The sky and the details in the building work well Nick.
Hope this is of use
Regards Richard

For me Nick you already do very decent monos, well excellent monos already, can't really see this as an improvement, more as step back if you get what I mean.
Richard has pretty well summed up the image, the sky also appears to me to be seperate from the rest of the image, as the cloud movement does not extend into the reflections of the water, the toning of the image is fine.
You have a project in mind, so may be what your intending here fits into that, if so go for it but for me your normal style mono's already work well enough.
