    This is my first real venture into black and white, the weather while i was in the city wasn't very good and I thought black and white would save alot of the photos I took, I'd love your criticism.

    In the first one the effect of the building falling back creates impact. From the nether lands to the skies, hugh? In #2 and #3 it doesn't. Usually tilt and shift lenses solve this, but is there a nikon TS equivalent?

    A tilt shift costs serious coin. You could build one, if you like this sort of photography.

    In any case, I really like the repeating lines in #1, but the bottom is a little dark.
    #2, the bottom is a little busy, and the top a little bright.
    #3 I wish you stood further back and had at least one vertical line. It's still an interesting image though.

    I really like the angles in #1. I can't really offer any criticism here because I am too new at all this but I dig your new venture. Good start!

    if you have photoshop you can use it to straighten some of the lines...

    I love #1 , though I might crop up to the first fire escape since the bottom portion is just black anyway and shows very littl detail. #2 doesn't do anything for me. #3, would have had more impact at a better angle, it needs more height. Next time try laying on your back and shooting up at the building.

    You mentioned because of the weather you felt B&W a better choice, I'm not sure if you shot in B&W or not, but its always a good idea to shoot in color and convert to B&W in post processing.
