Lovely shot. The lighting is great in this one, but I still prefer the other colour version. I think it may be the noise in the sky which detracts slightly. If you have the likes of paint shop pro, the one step noise reduction would improve this a lot I think.

Many thanks RJVC.... I thought about reducing noise, but it sort of had a film type grain feel to it, so I left it as was. Not the best of ideas maybe, LOL Smile

If you have ps, you might try smart sharpen, wherein you can lessen the sharpening effect in some areas. This is a great shot even if you do nothing else to it.--Chris

Excellent use of black and white. The cross really stands out.

Hi Steve! do you happen to know the significance of why it is was put there? is it a burial site or a memorial of some sort or some Church? I am really curious especially considering its size. Thanks in advance Smile I love history

Nice conversion to black and white Steve! I'm swayed in favour of the colour version though :-)
