    I loved these... i'd up the contrast for a gritty feel and i'd up the saturation on the color one so that it looks more... powerful.

    Great shots duncan. One thing that occurs to me... when you're shooting some of these, you're about 3 to 5 degrees off being lined up straight. It's easily fixed in PS, but really it would be an idea to practise lining up the verticals - or - pressing the shutter more gently? Spend a bit of time photographing walls and practising getting them dead straight upright - it's particularly important when you catch the corner of the building, or if you're having issues with barrel distortion, as the image loses it's impact under these circumstances.

    As gapinthevoid has mentioned, I'd be tempted to take the original colour images, add a red photo filter at 30% or boost the red channel, up the saturation a touch and then use gradient map to convert to B&W. Then adjust brightness and contrast and get a really rough feeling and grainy B&W image to compliment the subject. This is a post-processing thing, rather than a photography element, but I do think that *look* would compliment the images better than a straight low fidelity de-sat. Give it a try and see what you think of the results.
