I've always thought this was an interesting juxtaposition of buildings near our old office. I swung by this afternoon to grab a shot of it.

One of my favorites for this challenge, I really love the juxtaposition of the wonderful old stone architecture and the very modern building. The colors work beautifully together, and your choice of composition works well to emphasize the tremendous difference. I am so glad that you left it color! Very nice shot!

Textures contrast well here in addition to your theme.

I'd have cropped the right edge I think. Nice viewpoint and it fits the challenge nicely too. Wonder if black and white would be good for this - it might emphasise the textures more?

The old seems out of focus, and I would thinkthe foreground should be the focused area. What does the scene look like in portrait? Great subject for challenge. 6

Very good contrast photo! This was the sort of pic I first thought of when I saw the new challenge topic, well done!

Should have cropped out the new building on the right. There's no need for it, in fact it detracts from the message. Great idea, BTW. :)

I see the example your showing here. I just don't like the composition. The right side could of been cropped more.

A great entry; I think this would have been even stronger as a black and white.
