photoblog image Pillars of Permanence

Pillars of Permanence

Pillars of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. This was originally shot in colour, but I later converted it into black and white. The colour of the original scene was very monotonic anyway. I think the use of black and white helps express the "aged" feel and permanence of the pillars.

How does this compare to the pillars shot I featured on the 14th of Feb? Like it or hate it, let's hear your views!

I prefer this shot. The simplicity really helps to put the emphasis on the shapes and textures better. Good job!
Successful but boring picture!
To each their own as I disagree with Skee, I think this one captures what yesterday's failed to. For me it's one that you end up looking into to see all the symmetry but I like repetition...I like repetition...I like repetition...
I love this shot. The angles are good and yes, repetition is good.

Thanks for all the comments guys. Mr Skee has very high standards, maybe you can post a more interesting pillar shot on your blog for us to learn? wink

Anyway, tomorrow no more pillar shots from me (though I still have 1 more, taken at the British Museum), time to move on to the next subject!

Cricket is boring, unless you enjoy it. I enjoy it and I enjoy this.
