Just my word too, interesting and different. I like the angle and the general feel of the picture. The BW gives a sort of grim look to the church. I personally feel the frame does not add to the image, in fact is a distraction to an eye catching picture.
The black blob, cloud, tree branch or whatever it is on the right would be better removed.
Then You should offer this pic for the church mag.
Regards
Ian

I like the quirky angle and I very much like the extreme contrast.
I don't like the border though. Actually, I don't much like any borders but I think that this one really is too much.
I'd also have to get rid of that cloud (?) on the right. In fact, I'd probably get rid of the branches too. Just leaving the buildings in stark contrast to an empty sky.
Hope this helps.

Bren.

The quirky angle is very good and well suited to this kind of shot. I am not sure whether or not you wanted a normal monochrome conversion (You stated this was your first) or the one you have ended up with, which in the old days we used to call "Soot & whitewash" ie not enough mid tones. The frame I think needs to go and thena bit of tidying up of the what I call 'edge intrusions' - bits of branches which stick in from the edges and are incomplete.

The EXIF you have selected (unless of course the camera only takes pics on automatic) is not ideally suited to this type of pic, much better to have a much smaller aperture - and to compensate a lower shutter speed. If possible f8 or f11.

I guess we should soon be seeing some golf pics.
