Some tips

Architecture
715 participants 1720 photographs
The final selection of 40 images made me work too hard since there were very interesting things so that, even after giving it a lot of thoughts I have decided for one, any of the last 5 would be a worthy winner.

Building With Steps
Building With Steps - The tallest building in Fort Worth, Texas, this simple brutalist architectural design is a unique addition to the vibrant and growing downtown landscape, with a strong, repetitive pattern of windows being interrupted by meticulous, powerful vertical lines. It is the first and the last building you see when driving past this charming Texas town. It also serves as a prominent symbol of both economic and urban activity in the surrounding downtown area, with the interesting Jonathan Borofsky aluminum sculpture placed near.

Among the final selection, I think that this picture is the closest to what is the description of the character of a building. It is concrete, direct and effective and the balance between the two masses (left and right) is very well managed. All this without falling into sensationalism or superficial effects.
