Well back to the well covered subjects again, with my attempt of a photo at Fountains Abbey. After seeing lots of photos of the place on here I thought I had an idea of what the place was going to look like, but I was really shocked at how different it was.

Anyway, I thought I would have a crack at it, the place was very busy so its a miracle that I managed to get a shot without people walking into shot. A major mistake I made that day was to completely forget to bring my tripod and the interior on the abbey was really dark!! Luckily I managed to crank the ISO up and still get some acceptable images, so all was not lost.

I felt the a mono conversion was best for the edit to try and made the best of the range on tones in the abbey.

Well thank you for looking at my photo, I hope you enjoy and of course all comments and critiques are much appreciated.

Cheers,
Matt

I like your off-set angle on this popular spot, Matt, where most go for the 'down the middle' symmetry. Lovely detailed brickwork as well.

I personally think it is a brilliant image without tripod and in a dark situation!! Yep! B&W goes well.

The beautiful shapes and off centre perspective really draw you in and the detail in the brickwork is great.
