I thought the original was a superb image. One of the best i've seen on this forum.

This one just doesn't do it for me. There is a fantastic focal point in the form of the majestic building. Sadly it is too far away to appreciate in this image whereas the original you uploaded was simply magical

The black and white conversion is good but I agree with the first commenter in that it seems too far away. The boring sky has a lot to do with that I think, so making a more panoramic image by cropping out most of the sky might help but only a little.

I think this works very well. The black and white conversion is good and I like the composition, which provides exactly what the title promises. Two problems, though.

1. You've over-sharpened, which has produced a strong halo around the church and unpleasant artifacts in the trees.
2. The sky is very noisy (which was probably emphasized by the sharpening). Select it with the magic wand and denoise there.

Dave.
