... well, I did say on yesterdays that the mono looked okay. Just thought I'd show it to you
Converted using a couple of Black & White adjustment layers [1 for land mass and t'other for sky]. Slight tweak to the contrast in PS too.
Cheers for dropping by, will try to catch up in minute or three
Even better than the colour version!
This is very, very good indeed, Paul
excellent in mono too
Like it Paul, tho I prefer the colour version ... Just
I keep changing my mind between them Nick, I suppose I'll just print 'em both out
Cracking conversion Paul!
I can't decide, both quite superb!
Superb. Makes a really good b+w. Much more dynamic than the colour version.
Very nice mono with plenty of drama in that sky and good perspective and shadow provided by the structure.
This has an atmosphere all of it's own Paul...I do prefer that lovely light in the colour version though.
I like the viewpoint, most people shoot out to sea. Won't say yea or nay on mono or colour as I need to look for the colour version first
Pretty fabulous image. Love the shadows and the silkiness. A beautiful mono..................Sandy
Love this silver!
The mono win hands down Paul.
It gives a stronger affinity with the structure, being old and decaying, but still solid after all these years, it has been done with care and attention to bring the most out of the subject, well done that man.
On shortlist mate.............
Cheers all and thanks too Stewart for the considered response
Mono for me too...a great conversion
Definitely the colour version
A cracking mono (prefer the colour though, but only just!)
Cheers guys ... a good mixed bag of preferences there then ... looks pretty even to me
I think this monochrome treatment is far superior to the colour version, nicely done Paul, hope this persuades more people to have a go at monochrome, and reap the rewards. So here's my award for your efforts.
This works brilliantly in mono.Excellent toning.
Wow, big thanks indeed Dougie for your award, that does mean a lot - cheers
Ta too Tom
Love the mono treatment!
Thank you Raywan and welcome to the site.
An image that was made for mono conversion Paul.
Cheers Jim, glad you like it too
Can I change my mind ... On reflection I prefer this one
.. I should expand why. If I were to have these side by side on a wall this would hold my attention much longer. Great tonal range a and drama. There is one niggle and I think why I originally prefered the colour. The reflection of the legs in the pool on the LHS is almost non existant, another adjustment layer to bring these out ?
A quick question are you using a B&W adjustment layer, or Channels adjustment layers?

Somebody didn't read the description properly ... did they?
See what you mean about the reflection and yes this could be boosted using another adjustment layer Nick. Doesn't unduly worry me personally, but I can see where you're coming from - ta!!!
Thank you too Malcolm.
like both the colour and mono.lesley
Thank you Lesley
I think I prefer this one, but it's a close-run thing!
