buildings

I went out this morning looking to take photos of buildings. The theme for this months clique challenge is buildings & monuments. {Clique is an amateur photography association that I've joined}. I don't have a lot of photos of buildings, so I'm going to see what I can do over the next few weeks. 
These are my favourites from this morning- but I'm undecided about whether I prefer close up details or wider shots that contain the whole building. 

What do you prefer to look at?

  4. I always lean toward the close-ups! I think it's the textures that draw me! Love the first one...great doors!

  5. I always lean towards close up shots. That's why I love my macro lens so much. Gorgeous colors you captured.

  6. Hope you're enjoying your new photography challenge! :) I think the first two photographs are my favorites--with their eye-catching colors, textures, angular lighting, and the lock and signage--but juxtaposition of close-ups with more panned-out perspectives rounds out the character of a place. Rather than prefer one approach over the other, I often prefer both.

  7. What fun - to be challenged by this new group membership. Personally, I like the details best - but is partly from my need to control what is in the frame. The wider shots make it more difficult to exclude what I don't want to be there. Absolutely LOVE the colors of those first two shots - beautiful details.

  8. I like the detail shots best, but it's nice to get a wider view for context. The first two are my favorites, as well.

  10. These are all lovely but I must admit I am more of a details girl. Love the colours and textures in the first two shots and I love your last silhouette shot through the windows.
