Very effective in B/W with light and shadow. Dramatic clouds offset the sharp details of the many straight lines and square shapes. The eye is drawn nicely to the top where the light settles.

Very nicely done!   Posted: 09/11/2020 11:19:11

I love black and white images. This one is awesome, Nice leading lines, great contrast and sharp. Well done Alec.
There does appear to be a little noise in the clouds, top right.

Initially when I looked at this photo I thought man that is alot going on but than I realized that's what is intriguing about this composition. I am constantly following the diagonals around to see where they lead and the sky is the icing on the cake. B&W was the perfect choice for this composition.   Posted: 09/15/2020 08:51:00

Very intriguing this month Alec. So many lines to follow. I agree with others that B/W was the best choice for this photo. A great cloud backdrop, leading lines from right and left leading towards the middle.

The picture composition is appropriate, the black and white color is also very appropriate. Great job done.   Posted: 09/26/2020 10:23:27
