Saltaire Chapel

By ade_mcfade      
This is a methodist chapel built by Titus Salt, the philanthrapist who built saltaire to house the workers in his mill. It's a wierd shape and has his tomb to the left, though you can't see it here.

the sun was behind it at this point, but you can see it poking through the trees to the right.

Another shot that looked plain in colour, but with a little mono-magic, comes to life. Well I think so

Have a more narrow crop with virtually no side trees in, but I think this balances up better

great shot. your right i don't think the crop without the trees would look right.
The only problem for me is the cars, but obviously that is out of your hands. maybe a bit of photoshop magic could get rid of them, but i wouldn't know how.
again lovely shot.

I left the cars in to see who'd mention them !!

well done, there's a prize somewhere

the thing is, there were actually cars there, so I left them in.

It'd take about 8-10 seconds to remove them with the clone tool in Photoshop

what cars?
oh yeah! Smile

this jumped out of the thumnails at me, i like the balance with the trees in & that's another reason why it looks so good in mono as the trees look to me like they are 'showing' you the fab building
( ooh err trees showing me the way, have i had too much coffeee today?!)

Been there - Well captured and looks better in mono to depict it more in its time. Andy

Leave them in Ade they add characterto the image. Love the symmetry and so very well processed. Like the subtle sky, it really works and enhances the tomb & nice steady lead in too.

Beautiful mono conversion Ade, glad you managed to get out of the house before there was a happening.

Very striking composition Ade and cracking conversion.

Another fine mono shot. I would imagine in colour the cars are more of a detractor, but the conversion sidelines them well. So much detail in the texture and scene to enjoy anyway, that it was a while before I spotted them.

A striking shot Ade. Suits mono well and has a touch of the surreal to it what with the almost perfect symmetry. I'd personally remove the cars but either way it's a good looking image.
