Hmm, this was a tough one for me. "Emotive Architecture" where human elements may appear but where the image should predominantly be about the building, emphasising emotional content, not form.

Without a human element, I'd say in architecture, form is what most gives a building emotive qualities. The De La Warr Pavillion is a great piece of art deco architecture with plenty to photograph form wise - minimising this form while emphasising the emotion is tricky, but I'll see how this does.

I'm sure there's a good chance the second this challenge starts and I see all the other entries I'll realise my interpretation/attempt is out of sync with most others and a realisation of "how I should have done it" will sink in... but I live in hope =).

I'd like this very much for a challenge where the people or the shadows from the people (not the architecture) were important to the challenge topic. As it is, the people and their shadows are making this magnificent. But... I'd hoped for some architecture to add to it, since that's the topic.
