St John the Baptist - Greatham

By DaveRyder  
A series of 2 shots, with B&W / Colour versions, of St John the Baptist Church in Greatham (near Hartlepool).
All with E-M10ii and Tamron 14-150 zoom.

Im undecided on which I prefer, the portrait or landscape, but then I led with portrait so maybe I know the answer to that after all.

I really like V3, there is something about the colours that works well.

Robert, I thought the one thing that compromised the landscape images was the intrusive headstone in lower left I failed to account for as I took it. My attempts to clone out didn't work well.

A good set Dave. Both portrait and landscape versions have their merits.
In the first the grave stones give a nice diagonal lead in to the left, then along the church to the porch and the tower. The sky is perhaps a little too heavy against the lighter tones in the rest of the photo. in the colour version the grass for me is too bright and saturated (something more like the landscape version would be better).
In V2 & V3 the eye goes straight to the church which dominates the view, as it should, so the the top of the gravestone which concerned you isn't really a distraction. In a way it anchors the image in that corner. the sky is better balanced too, particularly in the mono. I think the colour works better here, the mono is just a bit flat.
I hope you appreciate this rather lengthy critique in the spirit it is offered, James

I used your V1 to do a mod where the biggest change I did was to reduce the yellows so that the grass wasn't the same mid grey as the shurch. I boosted the reds a touch for the stonework and reduced blues for a more dramatic sky.
I then added a vignette.
All of which was to make the building much more prominent.
Quick changes, and you could fine tune them better on the full size original.
