This is a classic high contrast black 'n white image. A well thought through composition.

Very well thought-out and presented - this high-contrast mono is such a powerful look.

Lots of strong diagonals, Bill, makes an excellent compositional framework. The high contrast emphasises these diagonals and there's a wonderful old building sandwiched between the new.

Striking the comp with the unusual framing.

A well chosen viewpoint Bill, excellent composition and tip top processing. A change from the Normal Sage view...A wise old sage told me.

I like the darkness at the top which seems to hold it all down and anchor the image. Although looking at the shadows I suspect it was a bright day.

I almost posted a monochrome image this morning Bill, it would have looked poor by comparison.

Love the gritty B&W rawness of this.

Some fine angles and tones in this. The framing of the distant buildings is genius.

Very impressive, love the comp and the high contrast. After all you couldn't do justice to Gateshead and Newcastle with something wussy and close-toned, could you?

Great piece of work Bill, very well processed and excellent Mono.

great processing and composition, Bill.
the reflection on the glass facade throws an extra light to the scene, generating those indirect shadows leading to the old church.

A terrific composition Bill, it was an inspired choice to convert it to mono as it has added grit, drama and atmosphere
