... well, I did say on yesterdays that the mono looked okay. Just thought I'd show it to you Wink

Converted using a couple of Black & White adjustment layers [1 for land mass and t'other for sky]. Slight tweak to the contrast in PS too.

Cheers for dropping by, will try to catch up in minute or three Grin

Very nice mono with plenty of drama in that sky and good perspective and shadow provided by the structure.

The mono win hands down Paul.
It gives a stronger affinity with the structure, being old and decaying, but still solid after all these years, it has been done with care and attention to bring the most out of the subject, well done that man.

I think this monochrome treatment is far superior to the colour version, nicely done Paul, hope this persuades more people to have a go at monochrome, and reap the rewards. So here's my award for your efforts.

Ohhh Sad



.. I should expand why. If I were to have these side by side on a wall this would hold my attention much longer. Great tonal range a and drama. There is one niggle and I think why I originally prefered the colour. The reflection of the legs in the pool on the LHS is almost non existant, another adjustment layer to bring these out ?

A quick question are you using a B&W adjustment layer, or Channels adjustment layers?

Somebody didn't read the description properly ... did they? Wink

See what you mean about the reflection and yes this could be boosted using another adjustment layer Nick. Doesn't unduly worry me personally, but I can see where you're coming from - ta!!!
