I've been wanting to try some architecture, and liked the shapes in this office building entryway. Taken on a Sunday evening to avoid foot traffic and security scrutiny (but, only a few office lights on as a result). It was blue hour just after sunset. I thought about combining 2 or 3 images taken at different moments from same position to get different exposure blends, but just decided to go with this single image. I also tried some of the "vertical" adjustments in Lightroom, but they made the angles look more severe so no adjustments there.

CC appreciated, and preference for color, or black & white?

Mark, you may have found your metier.  I think they both work really well.  Beautifully composed.

10 out of 10 for expanding into architecture, using your tripod, picking the time when you might minimise any chance of confrontation and capturing such a clean image....  I like the B&W best Mark, though both are great. Colour version looks food like, thinking ice cream cone with waffle instead of ice cream....??????

Thanks for the encouraging words guys!
Geedee, maybe the architect was hungry when designing!

Cripes Mark !

Beautiful work.  You found something extraordinary in the mundane.

I love them both.  The b&w by a nose.
