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.

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

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.

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.
