A decent record. It is pictorial record and, as such I would prefer colour, but that is personal. Depends what you want the image for. The mistyness is not entiely apparent and results in the rather bright area at the top left which might be better burnt in a bit.

As Paul says, a decent record shot. Not overly exciting, and while the black and white treatment removes any dating clues, I'm not sure it suits the subject particularly well here, as there isn't much hard definition, or anything else, to give it a "wow" factor.
I'm guessing the green of the trees, and the greenly/brown water would stand out better against the grey and white of the stonework (which could be enhanced somewhat).
also, the half-bollard on the left shouldn't cut the frame edge.

All in all though, pleasant enough, and timeless, without being a "wow" picture. Different light may transform this though, depending on its orientation to the sun.

If you have the original colour shot, - even though its likely not very colourful with the weather, you can upload it here as your own mod. Click the modifications tab, then upload mod, then select and upload the colour.

Its possible as mentioned already that you can get more out of the original, either as a colour, or as a mono conversion, depending on how the conversion is done.

As it is, you certainly captured a grey day, and thats what the conversion is missing, real black and real white, along with the grey tones to make a contrasty mono.


I have uploaded a mod, but will check back to see if you loaded the colour.


Regards

Hi All, thanks for the C&C, have added the original and just wanted advice on how to get the best out of a shot such as this. As I said it was a grey overcast morning with a few spots of rain, the light made everything look very flat, was hoping to capture more of the mist Smile
