Architecture & Monochrome – the assignment for day 12 of the Photo101 course offered by the WordPress Blogging University.

Today’s assignment was a bit more challenging than the previous ones.
Nevertheless is was worth the while considering the different moods which are triggered when viewing a photograph in color vs. black-and-white!

As you can see below, the building looks warm and inviting when viewed in color:

The same building in black-and-white using a blue filter looks quite daunting, mysterious and has a touch of a horror-house. This is further enhanced by the shadows of the tree-branches on the facade of the building:

Looking forward to reading your comments on whether you feel the same when looking at the different photographs.

As usual feel free to comment/share/suggest …
