Following the runaway success of my last Mono upload !!! I thought I would try again (always a glutton for punishment)

This is a B&W conversion of a colour version I posted a few days ago. I actually prefer the mono. C&C welcome

This conversion works very well Derek, but I do prefer the previous version. As someone said, they're both excellent... Dave

The mono's superb and is very well composed with bags of atmosphere with that brooding sky. It's a shame mono's receive less attention than colour as they have their own beauty and qualities to appreciate.

You have a cracking eye for a good composition, and this is no exception, wonderful tones and reflections too.

What a fantastic location and beautifully captured. I love the dark brooding skies over head, which really sets the scene. Is it as remote as it looks in the picture?

Superb

Superb

Fairly remote Robin. About 2 miles down a small b road from the main Brenzett to Rye Road. There are villages fairly close and Ashford or Rye are 10 to 15 miles away in opposite directions.
There is a small lay-by just by the gate that enters the field so parking is not a problem especially at dawn or dusk. Take a look on Google Earth or maps.
To be honest the light was far from spectacular when I did this shoot which was at sunrise and I spent about 2 hrs fruitlessly waiting to see if the sun would appear. The good thing is that the orientation of the church is such that at dawn or dusk any sunlight will catch either the side or gable end. I am planning to go back for a sunset shoot when the reeds have grown a little.

The best compositions always seem to involve getting your feet wet. Its one of those 'Laws'
