This looks really great in B&W and I love the way you've caught the window cleaning gantries at work.

(PS - I've bookmarked you over at my photoblog...I hope you don't mind)

Wow Hugo, these are fantastic!

Great lighting, exposure and compositions. And it works perfectly in B&W, adding a new dimension you could not get in colour.

Take care, Ian.

Thank you so much Ian, Both of you!!:-)

Bramham: Visiting your photoblog every morning to see what you've got has become a habit - I'm doing this almost unconsciously when I turn on the computer... But this morning I was absolutely stunned when I found the link to my blog was there! Still don't know what to say... Thanks. Now, expecting some of your friends might drop by, I'll refrain myself to post sloppy snapshots.:-)

Smith: So glad you felt these worked out fine. When this silverish skyscraper (Jardine House) caught my eyes, it's my instincts to set the camera to b&w to take these shots. I was so content that I didn't even switch back to take a single colour image.

BTW, when this 52-storey building was completed in the 70's, it was once the tallest building in Asia!

Best regards,
