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
Another classy rendition of this fabulous location Derek!
Yes I prefer the mono too, both are excellent.
I haven't seen the colour version yet, but this is superb. Great comp, tones and subject content.
Impressive image, well taken.
Many thanks Andy, Alan, Chris, Sindre and Daisy May. Your encouragement is much appreciated.
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.
Looks good in mono Derek. Ron.
has a great atmosphere, and a close call for me between the 2. but think the colour just pips it.lesley
You have a cracking eye for a good composition, and this is no exception, wonderful tones and reflections too.
This has converted so beautifully, and I love a good mono, this is also a very nice composition, and you have a knack at this type of image
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?

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.
Excellent placement of the church in the shot, perfect in mono.
Brilliant shot again of this church. Must try to get down there myself one day, I guess wellies are a must, though?

The best compositions always seem to involve getting your feet wet. Its one of those 'Laws'
Do like your comp in this Derek, good details and tones too.
Great location Derek, I never it's kent.
Both are good and the colour version as the edge for me.
