Something a bit different today. We have a mono competition coming up at camera club on the theme of "Architecture" and I was thinking of putting one of these in but can't decide which one to use. Thoughts?

Thanks for looking

V3 I think, although the others are excellent as well I think the sky in V3 just makes it my fave.

Three great photos and I agree with Andy that V3 is excellent, showing the bigger picture without losing the reflections and clouds Smile

Three great images of this remarkable architecture, V3 my favourite also.

For me v2 is more artistic it is more graphical and abstract. V 1 is not balanced quite as well and v3 is more of a record shot. An interesting subject though better than mine so far.

Sums it up well. v1 has some strong diagonals and the clouds are balanced with their reflection. v3 I would be tempted to pull the top left corner out to make a straight vertical. v2 for its abstract quality for me as well.

Jason, this is a quite exceptional set. All are exceptionally well taken and converted. My fave is V1, but I love them all.

Nice architecture well captured Jason!! I can't choose I like all three!!

V2 is the best for me as it has abstract qualities and strong lines and is the most inventive composition

I have wanted to get down south to Kristiansand ever since they built this place.

I would go for v2, as it concentrates on the architecture without distracting extra bits, like the other buildings in v3 and the clouds in both 1 and 3.
If using v2 I would clone out that tiny cloud right above the skyline of the building to give a cleaner, sharper look.

V2 for me, good mono tones, excellent lines and the sky is in the reflection making the impactSmile

V2 for sure Jason.
The houses in bottom left area distraction for me in V3.
I findthe lighter part of sky a bit of a distraction in V1
but V2 looks the perfect image.
Good luck with the competition - I'm trawling my folders for mono ideas too.
These are great Jason.. I had to keep looking at V1& V2. & I agree with the general consensus, just V2has a bit better balance.. Great work

A leading question and I just can't decide... A fascinating building tho.
