Challenge: Architecture In Blue (Basic Editing)

The blue of this building is natural. No blue filters or any other color changing software used. I did up the vibrancy, luminosity and contrast somewhat though.

The building in the image is the ROC building in Nijmegen.
ROC Nijmegen is a Regional Teaching Centre. It offers students, both young and mature, courses in secondary vocational education and in adult education. In addition it provides contract teaching for companies and institutions. Approximately 12,000 students are enrolled at ROC Nijmegen. The centre has over 1,100 staff. The Netherlands has scores of ROCs. Some 40% of the inhabitants of the Netherlands are following or have followed a course at a ROC.

I just want to thank everyone for the nice comments and great score you gave me on my challenge entry in the "Blue Architecture" challenge. I feel honoured. Congratz to all the other entrants who scored a ribbon or placed within the top 20. There were some really stunning entries all in all. I am currently not able to respond personally or individually to any comments under my images nor can I respond or post anything on the forums due to me being banned because of untoward behaviour in a thread on the memberís forum recently. All I can do at the moment is enter challenges and I can vote and comment on images whilst in the voting stage. I also cannot congratulate the other entrants who ribboned or placed well in the challenge in the comments section underneath their images.
I have been suspended from these activities until 11/23/2012
So until then I am afraid I will be suspended in a sort of limbo here.
Thanks to Amanda my dear friend who agreed to place this message from me on the memberís forum.
Sincere regards all
Fred

10 from me!

Seems that I have seen this before and I still like it. Not sure if this is a natural blue or a tinted bw; nevertheless, I like the image.

Just looked it up, Nijmegen. Looks even better in blue than in b/w. Blue ribbon for sure. (I'll take the red any day)

Great lines. Looks absolutely like an abstract painting. Only give-aways are the small office related items inside. Definitely a contender.
