I thought that was a big V shaped shadow on the ground till I looked closer. Nice reflections of the shop's masts in the building. Moira

I've seen a number of uploads of this building, but mainly colour and landscape - I think this first b&w portrait I've seen and it works. Fabulous lines, and the foreground shadows create an anchor to hold the lines of the building down.
I shall come back for a second look and see if I still like it as much...

Stupendous monochrome, Dougie: makes the jagged roof-line look as sharp as a razor, and not just in the photographic sense.


Such a dramatic shape. I like this mono a lot Dougie...........Sandy


This is a great mono Dougie - I especially love the lines and shadows in the foreground. It is some building...
Thanks also for your encouraging comment on my last image - my eye isn't as experienced as some, so it's good to have different opinions! Smile


Looks even more dramatic with this wide angle lens shot, Dougie, and the B and W presentation adds to that effect. Fine composition too with the f/g shadows.

OK I've come back, the Wow factor is increasing rather than decreasing... I'm generally trying to avoid putting GEAs on my regular contacts but I'm making exceptions in special cases and this is one.
I think one clincher for me is the use you've made of that triangle in the paving. Have you burnt it in for emphasis I wonder? Anyway it works wonderfully with the shadows on the ground.
The other clincher is the shadows across the light rim of the façade.
B&W allows the eye to concentrate on the things that matter, lines and form.

That's very kind Moira, been keeping this image for so long I almost forgot about it, glad I didn't now.

Many Thanks gives me the strength to wrestle with my printer now.

Your question about the pavement shape, it's as it is without any burning in, the shape has been designed into the walkway and it looks like a different material which has dried out slower than the surrounding paving.

Thanks again I'm glad it was a monochrome too.

I've tracked down this on line for you, I have a postcard of it propped against my monitor...

You have no idea how accurate that is, it's ages since I printed I normally get them done at a lab, just thought I'd have a go, and of course I've changed computers since I used it and can't even remember how to print monochrome without a colour cast. But I'm getting there, maybe a glass of wine will help? It'll help me maybe not the printing, c'est la vie. WinkTongueGrin


Cracking shot !!!.....great strong image from the V/P & wide lens.....top notch !!

Good luck with the printer.....it took me some time to get the best out of my machine, but it just 'eats' ink
cartridges like I eat biscuits ??.....so I've 99% given up printing, & 100% given up biscuits !!.SadSadSad


Like all the angles in this Dougie, very dramatic

Hi Dougie Love this photo just works so well in mono



Lovely lines and tones Dougie; works very well in mono. Would love to spend some hours with a camera there!

Beautiful presentation of this very intriguing building. That huge facade looks like a screen seen from this point.
Brilliant composition,

Great image Dougie, what a fabulous building, you've done it great justice topped off with all of those shadows Smile

(playing catchup!)


A very well composed image taking full advantage of the strong sharp lines. Excellent work Dougie.
