I was part of a photowalk in london on Saturday Meeting with my virtual friends frm anotyher site for the first time and wandering the streets of london talking and taking pictures.
Great time.
So this is a different view of the Lloyds building which still looks to me to be fresh and modern despite being quite old now.
I gave it a little twist this time .....about 180 deg in fact....

I like your b&w treatment of the Lloyd's Building... this treatment along with the perspective creates a dramatic feel. There is also an added sense of vertigo which enhances that dramatic feel for me.

When it was first built I thought it was ugly but it's grown on me over the years of driving past it and now - just as you say - I realise how well it has stood the test of time both in design and the way it has stood up to the dirt polution if the city - it never looks dirty.
I like your take on this and it looks good either way up. The only nit is the artefacting similar to solarisation which I suspect is due to you processing a jpg. Time to go raw mate. Jpgs are fine for minor adjustments but for anything more than minor changes to exposure or for shadow/highlight recovery and of course WB, Raw is the way to go.

Never seen it myself - maybe because when I have been in London, I've never been to this area in the City. Makes me feel a little giddy - good shot.

I love the perspective and composition, Great subject matter for B & W. I expanded the image to check for detail and as much taken with the sharpness of the grid work in the catwalk platforms, which demonstrate how well you worked dof over such a tall structure. Not an image for people who suffer vertigo.
