Definitely a winner, Brian, and architecturally amazing.
Brian Walbey: You were near this when you went to Blists Hill, which is where we were aiming for, but the rain stopped that idea in its tracks!

I have to admit that I really like this version.
The dark tones are so in harmony with the scene.
Great shot, LOVE it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I prefer this one as well to be honest.
Black & white always shows up buildings far better than colour, Brian. Really lovely arches.
Brian Walbey: I think your right Pauline, the outsides at least.

You have made it look even more nitty gritty, Brian
Brian Walbey: I think mono does that to old buildings .
Nice one, Brian!
