It is an awesome shot, no doubt.
If it had some real menacing clouds around it would have just been off the charts.

Little late for a comment, but there ya go. :)

This I like. Great building, what character and a perfect subject for black and white. Maybe it's me though, it looks a little unhorizontal

This building holds incredible character! Your sky unfortunately detracts from the image. Would love to see this reshot during a different time of day or with dramatic (spelled cloudy) skies. Hope this is a place you can revisit easily cause I would love to see more of it...

I love the sense of isolation. Excellent BW entry!

I really like the building and would have voted voted even better if the sky wasn't so washed out. Other than that I like. Good job.

This is a nice iamge. I like the fact that you shot this image in black and white. I also like contrast and value seen throughout the image. Nice work.

All alone, nice architecture, nice toning/conversion.
Well done!

I like your POV and the faded background. It might need a bit of rotation anticlockwise. One of the best B&Ws

One of the best I've seen so far. Excellent composition. I love the angle you've chosen. Perfect B&W choice. Congrats!

this might Ribbon...should of left the color, but it is still very nice

Very interesting and unique building. Sky seems a bit "blown out". Would have liked to see this one in color.

My first thought was 'too centered'. I would have moved left a little and shown more of the long wall, putting the spire more on the right 1/3 of the photo. Plus this would have focused in more on the vines that are climbing up the wall.

This picture is overexposed but it might have been fine if exposure had been correct and the sky had been a bit nicer - e.g. a blue sky with clouds.
Learn to dial down the exposure with your camera.

Great shot. I even like the burned out sky here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 03:22:31 AM
I very much like the vaguely "historical", old-timey feel of this shot with the blown sky and background. I'm wishing it had been toned to accentuate that. Nice image!

Micknewton? Lovely dramatic black and white. Nice clear image.
