it's ok, I like the clean and strong lines. But I feel it will be a while before I am astounded and amazed like I was with that last one!

This is good but not as exquisite as that other architectural one you posted. You've spoiled us. The angle is wonderful, again, you've got an eye for it so keep on working this stuff!

Here's a little critique from my perspective, though you realize I know little about architectural imagery. For me, the sky in the upper third is a bit too dark, and there are sky issues in the right 2/3 of the image that may be brushwork related or just processing with that particular kind of cloud. There's a little dark haloing here and there. I think if you back off the darks in darkest part of the sky and try to balance out the different portions, it will work better. Or go for broke, extract the building, and go with a black sky, or pop in a different sky. This particular sky may not be interesting enough to spend the time it takes to get all its varying parts situated.

So b/w may not always be best.......especially when lazily done...

Color is nice too, and doesn’t have any of the halo challenges. Likes kind of like vintage film. But monochrome, if you can make it work in extreme, would be very cool.
