Thought I'd try a mono version of a closer shot of Fyrish Monument as it seemed to give it a bit more drama.

No doubt about the dramatic look, Sue.
Your choice of pov is brilliantly chosen, with the distant shore on the far side of the Firth giving great depth to the image.

Not only does the mono work very well, but this crop has more impact, imho.

Have to agree with what's been said above - though I tend to prefer colour, think this works better in mono, and gives it a much more dramatic feel Wink
