Reculver Towers - situated on the North coast of Kent, it is the site of a Roman fort, Anglo-Saxon monastery, and a Medieval church. The church was partly demolished in 1805 but the twin towers were left. Reculver is said to be one of the most haunted places in Kent and there are many reports of supernatural experiences here, especially the sound of children crying.

Taken in the early evening sun at Iso200, 1/80s, f13, 15mm, tripod, remote release, and a polariser filter.

v1 was converted to mono at the Raw stage in CS5 with a yellow filter to bring out the stonework more.

v2 has the same exif, taken on the next frame but from a slightly slightly different position but left in colour.

Both cropped for effect.

Many thanks for looking,

Dave

Two fine compositions and on most occasions I would go for mono but here I prefer the colour version I feel the composition is stronger, has a greater vibrancy and you get the full benefit of that unusual sky.

Two stunning images of this rather 'Iconic' piece of ancient architecture. The black and white version certainly evokes a lot of drama, however I think the colour version tends to calm the scene down somewhat and thus making it more friendly.

A great image and conversion Dave, the low POV makes the tower very imposing, and the wonderful sky completes the drama. I can't decide which I prefer, but the contrast of bluse sky and cloud just gives v2 the edge

Nice one Dave

with the strong blue of the sky and the added yellow filter

Easy to see those haunted vibes emanating from the towers, each with its own degree of intensity--- one should wear protective clothing while traversing near this area, also take a protective icon or two...


Of course, should you go in the sunny daylight, you will have a much better visit!

Mono makes the most of the textures as Derek pointed out and the direction of light is great for enhancing the architecture. I like the dramatic composition; shooting from below enhances the powerful grandeur of the towers which, if they weren't obvious enough, then have the sky pointing at them!

Mono looses out on that wonderful blue sky, but I love the way that the V of the clouds comes from behind the tower in v1 SmileSmile

That building is very interesting, full of great textures... But I love the V shape displayed on that sky! Grin

V1 is terrific, such a dramatic point of view and very apt for a conversion to monochrome

V1 gets my vote, but there again the black and white version always does. Elaine

Lovely shot, the angle of the clouds contrasts brilliantly with the angles of the towers on the mono version

Great shot. Both are terrific, but V1 gives an impressive point of view. Very useful the captures's detail
