Default Great.

Simon is at it again!

Good motive you have found there, Simon. So symbolic for a time and for many a people a working-situation that will be lost forever and never come back.

I think your B&W-rendering in #2 gives it the most poweful expression!

NB:
I just found out (EXIF's are tell-tales...) that your #1 has been exposed for 2,5seconds at f25 and #2 for 4 seconds (!?) at f22 - all at ISO400. Why wouldn't you rather lower the ISO to 100 and use a shorter exposure-time instead? Or do you intentionally use ISO400 to get a special expression?

As it is - I really envy you all those f-stops on your Nikon D90. My humble FZ-28 stops at f8!!! There are many times I needet a smaller aperture, but no-can-do!!

Cheers!

I like every one of these shots, colored and B&W versions. I like your settings you've used on the colored versions here, paricularly the first shot. The B&W shot has something going on along the top right side of the first wall on the left as well as the window on the left of that wall. There is what seems to be a light flare there. Its not in the colored versions. Also the background bushes look fuzzy.

Like the third one the best, for composition and colors. Took me a few times looking between the second and third picture before I figured out what it was about the third shot that made me like it over the second one. To me it is the fence, makes you wonder where is this building, why is it there and why is it closed down now.
