Detail of three of the several columns on the entrance way to the Scottish Rites Catherdral in Philadelphia. There is the round shape of the columns made even more interesting by the shapes of the patterns on each. The lighting of the entrance gave fine tone and contrast, I think. Shot in B/W with the camera on a tripod.

Outstanding clairity and very nice highlights. I'm not a big fan of black and white, but I really like this one. Good contrast.

Nice shapes, nice lines, nice diagonal composition. However, something is missing. Sorry I can't describe it any more precisely. 8.

Love the textures, and the B&W does a good job of bringing the focus back to the shapes themselves. By the way, Is this the Duomo?

I can't make up my mind if this is a shape picture, a texture picture, or a pattern picture. It's got it all!
