City of Arts and Science 01 Black and White, Valencia

This image is one of two images that depict the same location, one rendered in colour and the other in black and white.  This compilation represents the black and white rendition. I normally don’t process my images in colour AND black and white, but in this case it was intensional to give a graphic depiction on how colour can ‘steal’ the show whereas black and white strips an image from the emotion of colour and give stronger contrast with a more dramatic feel.

The City of Arts and Science is in Valencia, Spain.  The area is peppered with modern buildings designed by Spanish architect and engineer, Santiago Calatrava.

The image was taken during sunrise to accentuate the soft light on the spark white buildings.
