By phil99
This is Hartshead Church taken late evening in September. It is the church where Patrick Bronte was vicar before moving his family to Thornton near Bradford and then onto Haworth where the 3 sisters became famous.He lived as a lodger at a farm very near to here It was during his time here that he met his wife And Charlotte and Emily were born here. Thanks for recent clicks and comments .All very much appreciated.....Phil

A beautifully composed scene captured from what appears to be the perfect point of view allowing you to capture the very best of this gorgeous Church. The high contrast mono for me is well suited to the subject matter Phil.

Like this a lot - the path leads up to the left and then takes a sudden turning right, that makes the eye explore, it's not a direct journey.

Good lead in and angle on the church, Phil. The mono is dark and moody, a very 'West Yorkshire' standstone feel (before it gets cleaned up Smile)

The high contrast mono works perfectly for this scene. It gives a gritty, down to earth feel that matches this area perfectly.

A dark but pleasing B&W with a very solid quality. Could crop a little heavy black from the top sky, yet a fine image in any case. TG
