This is a rather extreme black and white conversion of Threatening which I uploaded earlier in the week.
You will probably love it or hate it
For me it is the strong shapes that make it work
Thanks for looking
Helen

This is a fascinating graphic. I like the strong division of light and dark. Perfect for Saturday shadows, too.

I just voted for this in the VS mode, I like this kind of image, for me I would have cloned out the white line in the centre of the image just above the roof.

Quite an amazing conversion, Helen, didn't recognise it as being the same image! I quite like this 'soot & whitewash' effect, with the chimney standing isolated on the right SmileSmile
