I like the low angle and the B&Light works well.

On the whole me and BW landscapes just don't see eye to eye although I am trying to educate my uncouth photographic tendencies. Strong composition, good sky and a pleasing range of textures. I find the bottom left quarter a tad dark though.

Fab mono. Liked the colour version, but the conversion has created a really dramatic image. Good one!

I think I prefer this of this whole set Paul, it's suits the mono conversion so well with all the darr and light areas, the whole point of mono is to be different from the colour version. The light striking across the image is so perfect for monochrome.
I'd love to see this printed by a real mono printer onto real mono paper in a darkroom, wow! how good this would look.

All the very best and congrats on such a great B/W image,
Dougie

I can see Dave's point about the BL, but I think the TR balances the image quite well. IMO
