I can't decide because they are all wonderful!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Okay, I have to be different. I like the black and white.

Michelle said...

I like the b/w.

Revrunner said...

Add another for the b&w.

Lowell said...

In re the first photo - this is one shot that I think works best in b&w...very artsy and dramatic ... everything is going every which way, including the brick. Dynamic!

Felicia said...

very nice.

Randy said...

I like the first shot and the color of the brick.

Pamela Gordon said...

I love the graphic lines in these photos. Nicely done.

Chandra said...

I like all the photos. I am intrigued by the geometries.
Well done, Tina.
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

You found a scene with lots of angles and interest and went wild with it. I'm going to have to check out that Geometry meme. Interesting.

Ginny said...

I love what you did with the last one the best! They seem to be not making fire escapes any longer, you see less and less. I wonder why that is? I guess all newer buildings are obliged to have more than one entrance due to fire code.

Hilary said...

I like the black and white because it reminds me of the fire escapes of my childhood in Montreal. It's fun to play with our images, eh?

Barbara Wójcik said...

I like it.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The cropped and turned version creates an illusion of slow movement. Fascinating.

Gattina said...

Excellent results, very creative !

diane b said...

Great photo art.

visualnorway said...

A very interesting subject. Lots of lines, patterns, angles etc. Personally I prefer No. 1 and 2 (the others are too cropped for me). I like monochrome very much, but here I feel that the colour version gives me more.

Malyss said...

funny and creative ! I like how it turns in the last picture !

Breathtaking said...

Pablo would be impressed,because I do think the cropped one is like a painting.Super image, and I like the black and white one too.

Phyllis Oller said...

I like them all! Phyllis

Sandra said...

I like them ALL but i think the black and white i like a tad more than the others. this is true art to me...

Judy said...

Looks like you are having some fun! I have to say, I like every one of them. Those windows are nice. I like all the lines.

Rose said...

I love the brick treatment above that window!

cieldequimper said...

Brilliantly graphic shots!

Andrea Priebe said...

I love that Lori started this meme. Would any of us have even seen this as a geometric masterpiece before we were tuned in to it by her? This is just awesome and surprising at the same time. Everywhere we look we see those tell tale shapes :) Beautifully done ...

Jack said...

Hmmmm. I'm going with the original.

Liz said...

I love these creative images. Well done!

NatureFootstep said...

It is a beautiful BW Image and I like the glowing one at the end. Just hoping it is not fire :)

Anvilcloud said...

Sometimes, b&w is the best way to go, as in this case, for me anyway.

marshaleith said...

love the split-toning/posterized image especially

CJ said...

Wonderful image for the theme. Architecture usually makes such lovely geometric images. And I love stairs of all kinds, too.

Lmkazmierczak said...

Really liked your cropped and turned shot...sometimes I forget a new perspective can result in a dynamic shot♪

Prairie Jill said...

Ooh, nice edits!
