While I know we have done architecture before, for this month's challenge we will focus on the details. Rather than a whole building or house, try to focus on a part of it that you find architecturally interesting. Here is an article from Digital Photography School to get you thinking along these lines.
Working on images to be used in this challenge haloing became an issue.
I happen to be working on an assignment of photographing Victorian Houses but you are invited to explore the details of any building. Here is one more plus an abstract I created from the features of one of the houses.
Images were edited using NIK SE 2....find I keep going back to NIK as it has long been my favorite for B/W conversion. I hope you have fun with this. I look forward to seeing your architectural details!
Here's some detail from the US National Bank in Portland. Taken this morning for the theme, the shot is a 3-frame HDR composite (converted in Nik HDR Efex Pro) and edited primarily in Adobe Camera Raw with some dodging/burning in PS.
Must admit I like the theme as I live in a town that has lots of Victorian buildings with some rather unique details. Here's one taken this morning. I should have looked at that excellent digital photography school link and waited for a cloudy day as shooting this in bright sunlight wasn't the best. Or I should have done what Billz did and shot multiple exposures or remembered to switch the camera from jpeg back to raw - or better still both. I didn't like what I saw in colour but it did finish up looking better in black and white after doing the conversion with one of the B&W profiles in LR, some tone tweaking in LR and some HDR sliders in Topaz AI. Will be trying more later (and hope for some cloudy weather!)

Rita....the woman I take lessons with always encourages us to look for geometric shapes and interesting angles....bet those bells were beautiful to hear. Bill....have to ask....did you put your camera on the ground....have read about that technique but have yet to try it. Karen...fabulous detail on your window and nice crop on the eaves of the building. Tony (!!!!).....too bad you live so far away....love the windows and roof tiles!.....I want to explore your town.
