Palais de Justice, Monaco

More of an experiment than anything. Looks a lot more 'presentable' in high-key B/W.

The atmosphere suggests that justice is a bit on the heavy handed side there. Good work!

Gorgeous. That is a really beautiful building. I love the rich wood doors.
Samarth: thanks... i was attracted because of the wood as well but then faced the task of dimming down the other tones along with enhancing the browns...
Love the tones, beautiful!
Samarth: thanks ashish!
Far better than your monochrome adaptation. Clean composition here is a plus.

My professor noticed that I approach a lot of my subjects head-on, something I've been trying to actively avoid lately, maybe you should keep it in your head too. Its not that its a flawed approach, definitely not, but there's always room for more creativity and it can start with not approaching a subject head-on, which you seem to accomplish pretty easily anyways.
Samarth: same as before, i guess i just find it easy to be clean and symmetrical which is weird because it used to be the other way around a year or so ago...
Both versions are great, but I LOVE this one smile
Samarth: had a feeling you might like the colour version better...

I still like the black and white version.
Samarth: that's definitely different wink
Usually I would probably prefer such a building in black and white, but seeing the two after each other I think that the colour one has more character.
Samarth: thanks arjan...
