I tried to fix it for you but it didn't work. I can't find this image in your gallery by the number. What is the name you used for the image?
If you open the image to full size, right click on it and hit properties and then just copy and past the url you'll get it posted here full size too. Use the [img] tags in front and back. Hope that helps.

Nice shot, I like the conversion and the textures here. Even though there is a lot going on with the textures, iron work, glass, stone, the eye goes to the broken pane. I actually think the image would be even more powerful if you totally cropped out the lower windows. Nice shooting.

If I crop it, how do I keep the same dementions?? So it will still print correctly. (If I wanted to print it) :-D

You note the dimension of the original picture (in inc or pixel) and then crop it. Then you adjust the image size to the previous size (length or width) before croping (keeping the ratio). Then croping it to the size of the printing.
That's how I do it. Maybe there's a better way. It's not bad, but you lose a bit of the quality.
I do agree with the previous comment : you should crop the bottom. It's a nice shot, but I find that the way the picture was captured (not linear) distract the eye. Nice texture and the picture is pretty sharp.

I like the texture of the building - the brickwork. The windows all look cool and a very good subject for BW. The building looks abandonded. If so I would love to get inside and shoot it.
For your image I would get in closer and dissect the windows one by one - maybe a close up of the broken one with minimal brickwork might give a pleasing result.

Great shot Matthew, I really like the texture and the metal work etc. It looks forgotten, the patterns on the glass, some windows open, and the broken pane really stands out.
I think it could be more striking if you rotate it clockwise to bring the window lines vertical - aligned with the picture frame this could be a stronger composition.

Thanks GD, George and Nick.
I don't know if I can remember where I took that, it was in down town Seattle. I tried to rotate it but I did not look right, I will try again.
