Just some B/W photos i quickly did. Not completely satisfied with it but can't get the finger on where the problem is. But oh well, hope these photos get some interests from you blokes.

I love the look and very crisp images but maybe abit to dark?
Other than that, perfect.

I don't know if you took these as B/W or removed the colour afterwards in post-editing. If I'm post-editing a colour photo I usually jack up the contrast & brightness. It brings out the lines and detail. Then remove the colour before finally adding a faint colour highlight to act like a lens filter. Good work though.

As [Gioяgos] said, a bit dark, but that has its advantages. I'm assuming you're working with the 30D here - try decomposing and working with the green channel, or if you're using PS try the channel mixer (never used it but apparently it's quite handy).

The 1st pic of the Federation Warehouse style "Griffiths Teas" is located on the intersection of Goulburn St & Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills.
The 3rd pic is the 1996 Southern Cross Apartments on the cnr of Goulburn & Elizabeth Streets, in the Sydney CBD.
The last pic is the Federation Romanesque style ex-Westpac Bank Building. Completed in 1894, it stands on the corner of George & Harris Streets, Chippendale.
The other 2 most notably famous Federation Romanesque buildings in Sydney's CBD are a) The 1892 Société Générale Building @ 350 George Street & b) The 1898 QVB.
Can't recognise the Palazzo style building in the 2nd pic even though it looks familiar. Jog our memories; where is it exactly?
...and yes Chris, the pics are great but as others have mentioned, they're a tad too dark.
