We went for a family day out on Sunday, to a local attraction a couple of miles from home(Canon Hall).

On the way home I spotted this. As the cameras battery was flat, I charged it long enough and made a quick dash back.

This is 4 images stitched in PTGui, converted to mono.

I really hope this doesn't get lost in the thumbs as its one of my favourite mono's to date. Thanks for the help with this, you know who you are Wink

With it been a pano It does benifit from the large view.

Great shot. I love the high contrast and the sky is quite magnificent. Interesting framing too.

Nice conversion mate, hopefully this'll get the recognition it deserves.

Thanks for all the comments ...but it doesn't look like it has the seal of approval from too many. Ah well I still like it

Great scene Nick and I love the detail in the barley (I hope that's what it is!). Did you use a polariser? Just wondering if you had to adjust it for the different shots?

No Howard, the polarizer is on my "wish list", used a lot of grads (s stop) probably a stop too much, but I scratched my 2 stop first time out. Then I used the conversion technique we were taught - do you have a copy of it ?

Excellent when viewed large.
Really like the clouds, the two central trees (which work) and pov.
Think you have done a great job Nick....and look forward to seeing more B&W's from you.

Nope it didn't, B&W never really seem to do well on here Nick. I reckon a large print would do this a lot more justice.

Thanks Chris, hopefully the tide is turning I've seen a lot more monos recently on EPZ. To be honest I'm more interested in how it looks in print, and this is one I'm particularly proad of. I've printed it to A3, but as a result I will be getting a roll of paper to print A3+, so should be about a meter long

I given up trying to attempt b/w, as no idea how to do them justice. This, though is superb and worthy of far more attention!
