Very nice, Harald. As folks who'd stop by when I was doing an occasional art fair back in the early seventies used to say: "Them's real clear pictures."

Kidding aside, I like them very much.

Great eye for extracting the elements of design inherent in the structure.

All very fine, in particular when presented together. I would, however, go for a single toning hue for the B&W. I personally would opt for the #4, slightly warm black.

#1 for me.
My thought too.  They're all good, but the intersection and confluence of lines and curves in #1 is really superb.

#4 strikes me as perspective correction taken a trifle too far. I suspect that it is NOT actually wider at the top of the frame than the bottom, but that is certainly the impression I get.

Quite a common mistake. People assume that what's geometrically correct is perceived by our brain as such too. Backing off slightly from the "perfect" verticals often yields a more believable result, more in line with human perception.

Superb set of photos… My favorite is #1 but others are not far behind. FWIW,  prefer the B&W photos.

You're so right. I had a mixed feeling on #4 as well but my sponsor likes it very much. I beg your pardon for posting a photograph which doesn't convince me totally. But now I found my mistake: The tower was somewhat distorted. I hope this one meets your expectations:

I like #4 - but this is an instance I would like to see version where the verticals are parallel - so there is a static element against all the "moving curves". Also the latest version of this -  the left side of the building is way to close the frame imo. If it was mine  - I would also be experimenting with contrast...and maybe pushing/blowing out the specular highlights a bit

Here you are. I think that I will take some more shots from a different angle.

I prefer that...BUT with same crop and similar tonality of your original #4. That is quite a subject...that building
