    I can't decide if I like the color or black and white better.

    B&W for the sky & colour for the hotel & it's red roof!:lol:

    It might be an idea to use the transform tool in PS to straighten out those walls too before the hotel collapses! :lol:

    thanks for the comments, the colors on the print actually look better than the scan

    the values and contrast of the BW are great, but I like the color one more!

    B&W for the dark tones and clouds, more classic

    That is what I was feeling, now darin3200 is using the right word for it: the black and white version looks more classic.

    Therefore I must say: both versions are good, but the atmosphere they convey is different.

    Hey, all my building photos look like this, i.e. as if the buildings were falling over! Is there a tool in PS that can remedy the effect? For this kind of contortion is one reason (one of few only, I should add) why I don't QUITE so much like my compact digital camera... (All in all I like it A LOT, actually).
