You handled the multicolored decorations beautifully. The Fisher Building is one of Kahn's masterpieces.

Beautiful capture of the detailed patterns here. The B & W processing really strengthens this. The POV is also very strong with the long hall.

Nice tribute to one of the Albert Kahn's most beautiful buildings! It is bringing back many memories when I used to see live theater there as a kid. You have a great and sympathetic eye for capturing the spirit of Detroit! I spent a few minutes looking at your portfolio, and I look forward to your future posts.
