Swaledale Field Barn

By phil99
Well pleased with my HC for my last shot from The Howgills.Many thanks Pete.This was taken on a drive round Swaledale looking for locations and has been used by Joe Cornish .Decided perhaps a bit risky to go with a mono version .We'll see ...Phil

p.s . The 3 or 4 white patches at mid to top left are the remains of the quite deep snow which fell the week before and was still lying in the gullies where the sun was slow to melt it away

Good composition and I think the b&w works very well.

The mono treatment certainly adds a different atmosphere. Off over there in a couple of weeks.

A good contrasty mono, Phil. As always your composition is first class.

Another superb composition, Phil. The mono is undoubtedly the way to go.

Great composition, Phil. The mono is expertly contained although the pp has made it a tad too 'high key' on the mid-tones for my personal preference, if I'm perfectlly honest. That being said, it's probably just a matter of a conversion that challenges the perceived tonal norm and that can't be bad. loke others I'd love to see the colour shot.

Beautifully composed but it looks a touch over-exposed, to me. The grass and roof are very bright!
