photoblog image Ault Hucknall Church Re-visited

Ault Hucknall Church Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (19/21)  You can see the colour shot I posted of this small country church that I featured in a series earlier this year [ here ] to compare the two. I have several of the church taken from this sort of angle but this is the one that I was happiest with hence me using it again in this monochrome exercise.

I do like this angle, Brian. Lovely shot!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I used the tree to cover some people standing on the path in front of the church.
Quite a contrast from the colour shot Brian, the monochrome is very atmospheric. Fabulous.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sally.

Lucky for you, Brian, you have a slew of such images to play around with for a couple more lifetimes! :
Brian Walbey: Indeed I have Ginnie, if I didn't take any more I've got hundreds of negatives and slides I could scan.
Such a different feel to the two images. This treatment makes the place look haunted. Cool.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.

a moody photo of a robust, solid English church on a grey, windy day! Oh, sorry, it was a sunny day!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. Yes it was a fine sunny afternoon at the time.

This is very good
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
The colour version is y favourite one Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
graveyard week
Brian Walbey: Well a couple of the shots anyway.
I often think getting b&w tones right and making a decision is more difficult than optimising colour.
Brian Walbey: I think your right John, this is probably a bit too contrasty to be honest.
Makes a good b&w Brian. Better for me than the colour version
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
another strong entry. i like the high contrasts here
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.

Fine contrast in this, Brian. The mono conversion has worked well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.

Yes this works well for me Brian, seems to suit the church.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad.
Good work, I remember the colour post, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan.

This works really well Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
It's a lovely shot Brian; both have their merits: the stone work looks great! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
