sometimes it works

By pluckyfilly
OK its another church but whilst I dont generally post mono shots I did think this one works and shows the architecture rather well, well thats my thinkingSmile

Not looking great weather today but if it clears as yesterday did it could be another nice day.

Many thanks for all c/c's on yesterdays upload always very much appreciatedSmile

its a good shot my only thoughts is there is a lack of black in it and maybe if the shadows had come from the church and the headstones towards you it may have broken up the foreground, hope that sounds o.k. Ann Smile, ronnie

Has a satisfyingly graphic quality - but I agree that V2 is better, it gives a more substantial feel.

V2 for me Ann - needed that extra contrast to take the flatness off of V1.Smile

V2 works for me, with the added contrast, a great shot.

A very nice capture of this lovely church, Ann - and those verticals are spot-on! Wink Works well in mono, and think V2 just wins it for me Smile

V2 for me too, it seems much sharper and the detail is better

Version two is definitely the stronger here Ann, its always good to have that contrast in mono shots, and you are right it is a great subject for black and white.

Best Matt
