Bit of an experimental image here. I have been trying out some new processing techniques on this image primarily using selective gradient masks. As always your comments and criticism are gratefully received.

I like it. The processing suits your image perfectly.

It's stunning with mono reductiveness and I like it... but not as much as the colour version which I think has more impact and says more for some reason. Smile

A very clean mono conversion, Derek. The 'band' of sea is a perfect blank canvas. I'd probably still choose the portrait, colour version in a straight preference but they are two very distinctly different images.

Nicely converted Derek, it works well in the 'landscape' orientation too.

Wonderful mono image Derek. Full of moody atmosphere. I really like the central composition of the steps.
