    I'd appreciate comments on this one. I've heard everything from "wow" to "eh" ... on the other hand, I probably should form my own opinions of my work. Damn I'm insecure sometimes.

    I love the black and white treatment here. its nice and sharp and exposed very well.

    im not 100% with the composition yet, but a building like this might be quite difficult and/or drab to photograph in any other conventional method.

    i say great work here!!!

    i like that you included sky above; cool sky btw. i also like the b&w tones. this is typical of how restoration projects go around here. the idea, if possible, is to maintain the original facades and rebuild around them for aesthetic purposes.

    in this shot, i would liked to have seen more of the lower portion of the structure and the foreground lightened just a bit. still, i think you have a great shot.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I agree with MD here. The B&W just looks gorgeous! Crisp, deep and your clouds look great.
    The cut off part of the building in the bottom left bothers me though. Maybe you could do a Panorama of this and not necessarily horizontal but maybe vertical or on an angle?

    Hey Jon - the building is at the Columbia Heights metro station, just off 16th St.
