Like how all the 'lines' in both sky and in land seem to emanate from the subject: excellent shot and the B and W presentation looks so appropriate.

Beautiful use of leading lines here.

Some of the detail looking a tad aggressive on my screen, though...

A delightful B&W Landscape.

The only thing I may try is to add a little did more exposer to the highlights, as long as they don't blow!

Greet Work.
