There's Only One So It's Mono

By DaveRyder  
Following on from yesterday upload and as suggestion by Robert.

When I took this I only really considered colour output.
However prompted by Robert (Robert51), and his suggestion that it was really suited to a B&W conversion, I've passed the image through Nik Silver Efex and uploaded 5 version which all have there merits.

These are simply an output for the selected filter without further tweaking;
Lead - Silhouette
V1 - High Contrast
V2 - Full Dynamic
V3 - High Structure
V4 - Low Key

So yes, suggestion was spot on. Quite nice conversions.
Thanks Robert.

I agree Dave - all work for me. Just down to personal taste.

I much prefer this, good processing for the textures. All work for me but I'll go with the main upload for clean simplicity.

They all work Dave, but I prefer V4 and the lead. The low key treatment gives more weight to the structure and keeps the deep perspective; the lead has a desolate air in its stark simplicity. The others are a bit ordinary in comparison, tho still good.

great to see various options in B&W.
my preferred one would be option 4..for me it has the closest resemblance of a timber frame.

and i am allowed to make this 30 clicks too. What a day.....Grin

I'm rather partial to the lightness of v3. NIce work.
