Brick building

This is a discussion on Brick building within the Architecture & Man Made (cities, buildings, roads, objects & abstracts) forums, part of the Show your photo (Color) - Landscape & Nature (flowers, mountains, storms etc.) category; Cool set and good eye for seeing it! - I might crop out an inch or so from the top ...

    Cool set and good eye for seeing it! - I might crop out an inch or so from the top of shot 1. Your crop through the 3 whitish circular electrical components is a distraction for me.

    I might try to convert this to BW/Monochrome actually - I'd be willing to bet it would be equally strong if not stronger. It's already quite vintage looking and the BW would help to really push it in that direction.... and I do not know who originated the phrase 'colour is the enemy of form'...but for me this shot is much more about the lines and form than the reddish colour in the brick.
    Hope that may help - just my

    Wow, I especially love the second one. It would be great if you show us more of them. The little potions of this brickwork will tell a lot of stories.

    I'm a little late to the party here but it's certainly a nice find. I agree with Marko on the three little white bits across the top so I would crop there but I would suggest that you also crop the left side up to the line in the brick. If you do this you will end up with a diagonal line from the exact corner of the image going down and to the right. The math student in me likes the geometry of that solution.

    Again, it's amazing the interesting stuff you see when you start photographing. Most people will walk by something like this and not even see the interesting contrasts and patterns. Good eye.
