C. The black and white with high contrast accentuates the graphic quality in this.

This is so cool and graphic - I think simplicity of color is best.

I really love the brightness and slightly warmer tones in D! This is such a cool shot!

I like the starkness of the negative space in D. I think it draws you eye to the building details. :)

Better sky here, but I'd still do a sky replacement to enhance this.

I like D the best, but I find myself wanting the image to be rotated a bit so the center edge of the building runs parallel to the edge of the page.

I really like the clean white sky of D, and I think the little bit of color really adds some dimension to the overall image. Really cool!

I went with D, but A is a close second!

D. I like the bright white background and I like how the metalwork "shimmers" in this option. I agree with Shannon that it might be rotated clockwise just a smidgeon.

Love the perspective and all the lines and shapes with those countless windows. I would try playing with the contrast to make the "whites" whiter and the "darks" darker. I think the contrast should be as sharp as the angles. You could try a "poll" with a couple different versions to see what others think.
