*turns head upside down*

Oh, that's what it is!

I really actually like the unique perspective on this, and I wasn't quite sure what it was at first (maybe not now either, it's a building, right?) but I think it's well exposed and a great black and white conversion. It's very nice.

Yes, it's a building

la defense paris tour atlantique - Mapy Google

There is no conversion - this is scan from b&w film ilford 400

Google is great

Just wondering, as an experiment, what would it look like inverted black for white? That would give it a double-inverted theme. But maybe too extreme for what you are going for, though.

This is Great Stuff, sroka.
I really actually like the unique perspective on this. The norm for most photographer is to take a picture similar to the second picture.
IMO, the picture is well exposed and sroka has done a great black and white conversion.
Cheers.

I like the original, nothing to change IMO. Good B&W, good framing, good perspective... 10/10 for me

The original is slightly off level, but I very much like it, especially the disorienting perspective.
