First of the year for me.....A B&W which will probably go down like a damp squid.
Another from the Dales trip with Mike H at Gunnerside in Swaledale.
A fabulous spot with all the old barns, and as the weather was a bit dull, Black & White seemed to be the way to go on these shots.
Thanks for looking and all comments appreciated.

I think this works beautifully. I like the line of barns going across the the frame complemented by the horizontal lines produced by the stone walls. A very strong composition.

Works well in b+w Steve, I like how the walls and barns work together in the composition and the longer focal length helping to tighten the perspective,

A terrific composition, with the barns leading the eye to the distant bridge. The B&W treatment works well, because it helps to bring out the wonderful texture of the stone work. At the risk of offending purists, I would have been tempted to clone out that half-sheep!

Cheers folks.
Thanks Ian, I had noticed the half sheep and did think about getting rid of it. It wouldn't have been the first time a sheep had been cloned Smile

Works well in B/W, the composition makes it though with the barns running from top to bottom, great work.

Steve, dull day maybe, but the resulting image is anything but! B&W is a good choice I think, and I love the scenery!
