Hi; I do like this better than the colour version. An excellent image but I feel it might be a bit contrasty with the stark black and white.Did you try to soften it by reducing the contrast or is this a result of boosting contrast to much? Chris

I was inspired by a high contrast architecture photograph... so the high contrast is on purpose... Too bad the noise level is too high...

This is a great shot. The only issue I have with it is the amount of noise in the shot. I havent seen the original and i dont see what iso you shot this in, but I would try and reduce the noise in the sky and water and see how that works. it looks like a IR shot, great work.

great black and white image, the image was positioned nicely, if i could just make one sujestion, maybe try and see what it would look like if the image was a bit softer, or maybe just the water softer, all in all its a lovely photo!
