    Interesting shot. I’m not sure how much the colour adds.

    Good point, Jeremy. I went back and looked again. You’re right. The graphics are predominant. They make the picture. I should have seen it in the beginning.

    Interesting image. I’m uncertain about color vs. B&W. The green is distracting in the color, but on the other hand, the differentiation of colors in the building is interesting.

    I think there is too much irrelevant and distracting material top and bottom that doesn’t add to the composition. I’d crop some off.

    Thanks for your comment, Daniel. I appreciate it, even though I don’t agree.

    I’m torn, but on balance I tend to the B&W. Could you perhaps tone down the bright line of greenery? It’s more intrusive in the monochrome version.

    I didn’t agree… until I tried it. I’m still not sure I agree.

    I think, with respect, you might have been a little heavy-handed.

    I think you’re right, Jeremy. I’m more interested in making a correct exposure than messing around with post=processing. Looking at the list of modifications I still like the original best.
