I liked this in color, but the B&W brought out the detail in the peeling paint.

Yes, agree entirely on the b&w ability to reveal detail - sure works here.

You photograph of this small corner of the house, tells the whole story of the state of decay of the whole house. As a kid we had radiators like this. The one in my bedroom was inches from the bed, and I still have the scar on my knee, 60 years on.

The tattered look of the paint works well in black and white. Excellent choice I think. A fine shot.

I am surprised by how the peeling paint is able to "hang on to the wall" given how thin it appears to be. Great tones, contrasts and textures!!

I am directing a play in the fall and would love that radiator for my set.
