An infrared converted shot of Cornwall's finest quoit. I added a very mild sepia tone to recreate what I would have done in the darkroom using Agfa Record Rapid and warm tone developer.

Really nice mono and subject.
Beautiful toning and detail Pete lovely light and stone detail and perspective.
I only live in Devon, really must go and visit these at some point
Pete -- composition is very nice but I wonder whether the Levels need to be tweaked. The white point is not really white and by increasing contrast a tad, it would probably lift this image little bit. I think we would probably also distinguish more details in the grass in the f/g.

I left it with this tone as it's how I imagined it when printed on Record Rapid...feel free to tweak though and upload a mod
I don't know anything about IR, yet another thing to learn about, but I do like the results. I have noticed that images that have a lot of texture seem to work really well with it. (If that makes sense)
Much rather the more vibrant upload from previous upload.
Taken a few shots of this one,its a lot smaller than you think .The mine in the backgrounds a hard feature to get in.I normally go for a lower angle and miss out on the mine because of it.
Like the placing of the tin/lead? mine on the horizon Pete.

Yes I have lower shots that make the Quoit more dominant but I wanted the mine in. I also have shots with the mine framed inside the Quoit, but the balance of this is better

Thanks Malcolm...Tin is the answer
Great mods G, a touch over sharpened for my liking, but I like what you've done with the contrast as an alternative to my old-school darkroom treatment.
Classic mono, beautiful tones Pete. Ron.
Really atmospheric. Great looking sky.
Nice Pete, but needs more contrast me feels.
Regards Burn it always Blue...
Its always nice walking around this area... although this year I missed out on this one due to heavy rain
Its a good recreation of an older style... and interesting to compare this with the modern high contrast mono images that have become so because of the likes of PS. I was in a gallery recently and saw an exhibition of silver iodide type prints, which looked great, lovely and warm.
