Black Rock Cottage

By Sue_R  
Enjoyed doing the last mono I uploaded so much that I thought I'd stick with monos for a while so here's a mono conversion of a shot I took a while back of Black Rock Cottage, without the rock for a change Smile

Thank you so much for your votes and comments on my last upload and a special thank you to Stace for his User Award.

Great conversion Sue, the cottage really stands out sharp and strong. A wonderful 'black and white' rock cottage Smile

Nicely done Sue. It has to be viewed large to get the best of the light on the gable wall, which adds quite a bit to the image IMO>

Oh I am sooooo disapointed in you.
I thought you stayed away from the cliched and over photographed.

Beautiful mono - love the contrasts, esp. the very white building. Great image - as usual!

Fascinated by these comments. 'Cliched and overphotographed?' Am wondering if this is a wind up? Super mono shot, wonderful viewed large, and ticks all the boxes for me. Just out of curiosity, how can you 'over photograph' something? I really like the original colour version, Sue, and this mono one works really well for me, as it seems to for others. Lovely image.

You shouldn't go moving heavy rocks around, Sue, whilst you're still getting over your bad shoulder! A wonderful mono conversion of this delightful location, lovely tones & textures Smile

I never get tired of shots here....every one is different, and as long as the shot is strong compositionally, bring 'em on, I say. Your viewpoint is slightly different to the usual here, Sue, so that adds interest and the mono conversion works so well b/o the great range of tones and contrast. very nice one.

A fine take on this famous cottage, the monochrome conversion works perfectly
