I'm still trying to learn B&W and take advantage of the time when I take photos...All comments and criticisms are welcome. Thank you.
Lovely composition Jasmine, the twisting path and shadows look good, nice mono shot.. Peter
Beautiful and well composed image Like, the light/shadow in this one and works very well in mono,
Delicious shadows, b&w is about forms and light and shadows are so important.
I agree with Malc's comment, re straightening and re the grass. Re the former - if your software allows, try skewing the bottom right corner out a bit as an alternative to rotating.
Thank you very much Malc.
I noticed the church tower was leaning, It looked a bit strange when I was there. I went their website:
I wasn't sure about the tower, so I straightened the image according to the wall...
Thank you very much, Moira. I'll try it again..
Thank you all.
Great composition Jasmine. paul
A lovely shot Jasmine practice makes perfect and you are doing really well..Lin
I agree about the straightening, and that made me think that the whole 'verticality' problem seems to be caused by lens distortion; I tend to believe this can be exploited even further; the curves are already winding and all in all I really love the way everything gets confusing with the tower leaning towards the right and the wall towards the left for my taste, it would work even better if they were leaning even further apart. So from this point of view, I ended up loving the distortion.
However, I wonder if the contrast isn't a bit too high. (High contrast works great for b/w shots but it's so difficult to master properly...)
great comp jasmine wonderful light and shadows superdetail a cracking mono nice one
Jasmine, I really love this composition - the curves with the tower and the railing giving the verticals. Really an interesting photo - you have such a good eye.
A super composition with an excellent pov, well done Jasmine.
Agree with all the comments above - a great comp and good conversion Jasmine - a great shot
An excellent mono..............Martin

works so well in mono
I think that the exposure/contrast problem has been caused by the quite obviously, blazing sunny day you had, & the shot was probably taken during the middle part of the day. I'd try just easing back the contrast a little. That may bring back some of the detail in the lighter areas too.
Otherwise, a super conversion.
A superbly composed scene, such excellent light and shadows. The conversion to monochrome was a great idea
An excellent composition and a good mono conversion. Needs straightening but that has bee mentioned. A
A lovely B&W image, Xwang! Nicely converted!
