I remember initially walking right by this facade during a photowalk in Portsmouth, NH. Normally, a repeating pattern like this one could be seen as a distraction of sorts because of how much attention it grabs from the viewer. However, when incorporating an dominant anchor, like these two dark windows, the patterns instantly add some really pleasing negative space and contribute to drawing the eye straight to those windows. It also helps that the windows are so much darker than the rest of the frame, but you get the idea. ;)

In terms of processing
Pretty straightforward here. I converted to B&W using a custom built effect in Perfect Effects 3 by +onOne Software and then applied some contrast and clarity in Lightroom 4.1.

See – pretty straightforward. :)
