The Laxey Wheel (also known as Lady Isabella) is a large waterwheel built in the village of Laxey in the Isle of Man. Designed by Robert Casement, it has a 72-foot-6-inch (22.1 m) diameter, is 6 feet (1.83 m) wide and revolves at approximately three revolutions per minute.
I wanted to take a shot of the oft-photographed Lady Isabella from a POV that was a little bit different. I liked the lead in lines of the steps leading the eye up to the top of the wheel. I thought the subject would suit a black and white conversion and have uploded the colour version for comparison.
I'd appreciate feedback on;
1) Does this composition work?
2) Is it better in black and white or colour?
Thanks for looking guys.
