I really like this shot - you've chosen the perfect format. Having it in b&w really accentuates the ruts in the hillside. I also like the way the clouds all seem to be in the same area. Well seen and processed!

well constructed..it feels as though the sky is a little too dark to me. A play around with levels might find a better blend Smile

A very nice set off ruts to work with which give the shot some structure and interest. I also like the bits of vegetation just to add a different shape and texture, plus some horizontal shadows to break up the vertical ruts. Could be anywhere, anytime - a quarry in Lincoln or somewhere on a distant planet.

The only little thing which bothers me is the stone or what not right in the centre foreground. I keep wanting to pick it up and throw it away because it spoils the flatness of the foreground.

Very good shot, though.

Best wishes

Catherine

Looks like you used a blue filter in the mono conversion, resulting in a darker than normal sky.

Uploaded a mod with the sky somewhat lighter, - its a different feel, but not sure if thats waht you are after.

I assume your infra red conversion is in software. I don't think this is the right subject for infra red - you need vegitation and subjects which reflect infra red radiation and here, only the sky does. The resulting effect for me is a bit heavy and dark with the darker areas of the quarry face dead centre. The idea of a wide open expance does not really come across without an object to act as main subject.
