Not sure of actual f-stop used, it was a manual lens and so didn't record any info.

First off, I love the tight composition of this. While the tower thingy in the background is a bit distracting, in one sense (and it would make a really cool picture without at), in another sense, it adds to the shot by contrasting old/traditional with more modern.

Technically, the focus, exposure, etc. is good. I think the biggest thing noticeable to me is that it seems to be gray overall. It needs some more distinct white/light areas, I think. Admittedly, I am not sure how or where, unless in the conversion process you could get the whitish area on the right a bit brighter.

Overall, a nice shot. It is very graphic and clean.

Best to you in future challenges.

Nice contrast (both in terms of B&W and building)!

good juxtaposition...a little too tight in the crop for me
