Here is a mono conversion of my last upload.
works a treat for me derek nice one
The full tonal range and an excellent mono, Derek, but if it came to a choice I think I'd favour the blue tones and contrast from the lights in the colour version.
Looks good in mono too, but I prefer the blue tones version.
You can cut it either way. Comp and tone are excellent.
Top shelf again for me Derek.
love the perspective and composition, and it just works so well in mono, great image
Mono has added to the original Derek, excellent.
Excellent image, love it.......Sandy
Superb conversion, great tonal range a great image all round, however, it's lost it's warmth, the blue and good tones of the original, just edge it for me
The monochrome conversion brings some drama to the image Derek, I do like monochrome, especially with this kind of image.
This one is splitting opinion. I'm marginally in favour of this wonderful mono. Excellent tonal range and impact. Both images are truly outstanding, Derek
yip....top notch stuff Derek, really suits the mono
Loved this yesterday but had to wait to give my UA til today.......Sandy
Thank you everyone for your thoughts and comments.
An extra big thank you to Sandy for her UA and to Pete for the HC.
Incidentally the mood is intentionally quite different so I am not surprised by the split opinion. I wanted a much darker feel to the Mono because thats how I tend to like B&W.
I have just returned from a very wet and very windy shoot with Clive Burrow on the beach at Hastings. Hope you have dried out Clive.
Love the composition Derek and the mono is perfect.
cracking mono,love the moody feel to the shot
The mono works very well Derek - you must have been soaked if you were out this morning! Look forward to seeing any images....

Thoroughly drenched !!!
'Any' images might be right Ann. Having checked the back of the camera I have deleted all the images with obvious rain spots but I havn't downloaded whats left. I suspect all the wiping of the filter and lens may have left me with quite a few 'soft focus' shots.
Ahhh, a location where I bagged some 'bankers' and ones that have won me some competitions!
Great mono. I like the composition which works so well. I do think (IMO) that you could have raised the exposure in the foreground more. It just looks a little flat on my computer. Nothing you could do about the cranes of course, but I'd be tempted to clone them as they do draw attention away from the main subject.
