For me a good improvement. An eye catching and unusual image that works very well
Years ago I read about this church in a little book about follies. It was said that the church was built at the instigation of two sisters, who disagreed about whether it should have a tower or a spire, so it ended up with both.
Any picture of the church should, I think, emphasise the anomalous presence of both tower and spire, and this one does so very well, but it does it to the total exclusion of all else. I would much rather see more of the building than is conveyed here, just to put the unique architectural configuration in some sort of context. That said, I do agree with the comments on your earlier versions about the viewpoint and the extreme angle.
I think I liked it better with the foliage in. As it is the eye tends to fall off the edge of the picture at the top - the foliage had the effect of arresting the strong lead upwards that the composition imparts, and thus kept the visual interest where it belongs.
It is a very contrasty image, and that worked better in colour than in monochrome. It perhaps needs the contrast toning down just a little for the monochrome to work - not too much, just enough to smooth off that "soot and whitewash" effect.
Anyway, I do like all three versions.
Maybe the inclusion of a better sky would help, the one you have is attempting to break through. I feel that either a better sky or none at all suits your mood better than a sort of half a one. I have done a mod for you to have a look at.
When will we see those golf action shots?
Thanks Ian - maybe a thin border around the pic would stop the sky falling out at the top?
Thanks for your comments Canonshots - yes, apparently 1 of 3 in the country to have both tower and steeple - you are welcome to have a play with the picture to show me what you mean, I love photography and would like to improve my shots so thanks for your advice
Focus Man - thanks for the Mod - always interesting what other people do with the same pic I get what you mean with the sky etc, as for the golf shots lol, I do have a few!!!! - but normally i'm on the other end of the club

Lovely course Ormskirk, as visitors we eat our meal up top somewhere amongst the rafters. Played mostly off 8 (hit 7 for a few weeks) but my spinal stenosis and prosthetic knees mean I can no longer swing a club, nor even walk far enough. A buggy failed to help because of the difficulty and pain involved in swinging. I do miss the game and the cameraderie.
Which club do you have your business at?
Arhh thats a shame you cant play anymore I was going to suggest a buggy as it keeps people playing slightly longer - I am based at Ormskirk so we might have already met
A bit contrasty for me. Rather stark. There areclouds inthesky,but it is difficult to see them. Needs an IR sort of treatment when converted if there was some blue in the sky.
