    A very nice sense of rhythm through that repetition, Doug!
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    I wonder if the design elements might be stronger and more rewarding if the exposure was lifted by as much as a stop and just lowering the value of the central form.

    The effect at the time was of the low sun picking out the shapes of the facing walls.
    Perhaps I have tried to over emphasized that here.

    This is a more natural edit, I think along the lines you are suggesting.

    Doug,

    Thanks for being a good sport and giving it a go.

    To my eye, the first is a post sunset, dusk sort of rendering. As a sunset in B&W it is hardy dazzling., The second does look like late direct rays and makes for an interesting study of pattern.

    I know which I prefer.

    My approach is not so much to simply document as to celebrate. Find something introguing and then shout about it in glowing terms (no pun intended in this case).
