Award Shortlist   

ONE

By WhiteRose1  
Numero Uno... the first in my series of numbers..... at the rate I'm going I should finish by the year 2377!!

The address is that of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), in Great George Street, SW1 (London).

The lines, shapes and textures caught my eye. I guess you might say this was a bit of a grab shot for me as I was on my way to the Thames at the time!!

Iso 200, 1/500s, f5.6, @155mm... handheld on the 70-200 lens!

Dave

I like the light stand but shame about the numbers. Spoils a classic look. I assume the ICE added them.

Your processing has brought the detail out of the light stand beautifully.
I assume you're just going up to 9, or are you venturing further?

Gorgeous b&w treatment, Dave. The One attracts but it's the textures / tones in the two rams' heads and the base of the pillar generally that hold the gaze.
I shall probably work backwards from 196 so we'll meet in the middle - around 193 no doubt WinkBlush

Well spotted and composed. The straight lines make a nice contrast to the fancy metalwork and mono enhances that. Didn't know you were embarking on a number chasing challenge, surely 365 would be easier?!
