This is the Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix. It is huge and quite a landmark. Phoenix has a lot of interesting architecture, so I was torn what to submit.

Since it looks so hive-like, I decided to go with the BW rendition and hope that the space-age feel comes across.

Great Black and White conversion, which really brings out the 'alien# look of the building. I am not quite sure whether what is fairly stark architecture is the best for encouraging rest and recuperation but I guess ultimatly it is what goes on inside the walls that really counts

It kinda makes me think of a futuristic cheese grater.

Great finish in the challenge btw

You did a bang up job with this, Alicia... I've actually seen this hospital, and you really made it look cool! Great perspective, processing, and the title seals the deal.

Beautiful white contrast against the dark sky. It's funny how smooth and curvy this building is. Looks like a stack of legos :P
Great looking photo, Alicia!

I would have expected this to score higher Alicia. Still, it's a good score and a great shot.

Great picture. I like the contrast between the white building and the very dark sky.

Very striking, but I can see a couple of spots in the sky where I guess you cloned out some stuck pixels?
