Impressive series!

My favorites are #2, #6, #9 and #10. With the exception of #10 - the red color is striking! - I would probably try to create B/W versions of the first three images which I pointed out. Of course, nothing could beat the Bechers.

TFS!

#7 -    Because images 2-6 are, to me, primarily about line and shape, they might be striking in black and white.

Agree with Roger these could do well in b&w. Did you consider cropping off 3 cm from the top of #3? Just an idea. TFS Robbie

Harald, Roger & Michel thank you for your kind response. As you suggested
I developed some of the pictures in b/w: To the b/w versions

For me the b/w-versions of #2, #3, #6 & #9 working best, what´s your opinion?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

P.S.: Had to have a look @ wikipedia who are the Bechers? After reading I remembered to have heard/ read of them Kraftzentrale Duisburg

Ja B/W for 9 3crop 4 5 is better for me. I can't resist a clear blue sky so I like 2 in color. There is something about numnber 6 the outdoor courtyard with the leading lines and the Red color that gives me a tickle. I agree with Roger that number 7, which is already B/W in color, is my favorite. Agree with Harald the red in 10 is eye-catching.

Robbie, thanks for presenting the b/w conversions. Now that I see them, I prefer 2-4 in color; the greens in #3 and #4 and the blue in #2 provide necessary color contrast, whereas in the b/w versions contrast is lacking. For #5, I prefer the b/w (so little color anyway) and for #6 because there is such strong presence of line and shape I prefer the b/w as well.

Nice set. My favourites are nr 2 because of the strong lines and the contrast of the red against the blue colour, nr 6 black bricks with red lining and the green that softens the image a bit.

I agree with Roger in regard to ##2 – 4, and #5 is better in b/w. In case of #6 and #9 I cannot decide between colour or b/w, I like both versions.

Thank you guys for commenting!

Nice series Robbie. I like these indutrial heritage sites.
For me, the mysterious #6 is teh winner too.

For me #5 and 9 definitely work better in BW. #2 wins in colour for me.
For #6 I have a slight preference for the colour version.
