    I got a zig zag, too! While none of these is the one I'd hoped for, the exercise was totally worth it. I hope I'm also making headway on the conversions.

    The zig-zag is the winner, for me. Why? On the left side of the picture, you it show us five separate floors' worth of staircases and contrast them against the five empty floors on the right hand side of the frame. Wonderfully done!

    Thanks! I have also been having fun with tighter crops of this angle.

    I appreciate the compliment very much. It is so cool to be able to "workshop" a shoot with some pro input. It will improve my future efforts, without a doubt.

    I was torn about commenting on this image because I'm just getting started with B&W, however with that said, I will just say that I preferred the shot of the building from and angle more interesting than from straight on. I also think this building has a lot of potential that you may not have explored yet. I hope you will go back and spend some more time with it.

    Hi plm thank you for commenting :)

    The angled shots were closer to my original vision for the shot. This was one of those times where I just couldn't "close the deal". I wanted to get closer and get a different angle, but I was afraid to hop the fence. I was literally across the street from the sheriff's office. I also wanted to shoot it in the dark and place some speedlights in the structure, but no chance for that.

    A few nights ago the local news showed video of the final demolition.

    Thanks for stopping in to comment!

    I like that conversion best yet, designer. Thank you.

    I feel silly, been using LR Cc for over a year now, and never found that preset panel until this thread.
