Decided this image of one of the stone circles at Avebury in Wiltshire also worked as a mono. In fact, I think I prefer the added drama of the mono conversion so I'll be interested to see if others agree with me.

Many thanks for your votes and comments on the colour version.

Very dramatic, Sue. I do like the mono treatment for this type of shot.

It gives a very dramatic atmosphere as a mono, Sue. An excellent choice for the b&w treatment.
Should really be accompanied by some heavy classical music to complete the feeling.

Agree with Malc, but maybe 'Rock' Music would be more apt? Shame there's no Sheep in the Circle Sue, it could've been 'Rock Around The Flock' Smile

Works perfectly as a mono and looks so dramatic.

It has a sort of grim feeling to it - the silent stones just standing there in a line. Fantastic mono!

This is more striking than the colour version Sue.

Yes, it certainly suits the mono treatment, Sue, and has a much more dramatic feel compared to the colour version. I wouldn't say either is better than the other, just different; they're both delightful Smile After much toggling between the two really can't choose a fave! Wink

Cracking shot !....the mono conversion certainly has a lot of drama to it, with the sky looking very impressive....1st class !

Very dramatic in mono Sue, this one is totally different to the colour version and has more impact than the colour version. I think Treve has summed it up so succinctly, I too can not pick one over the other
