Wonderful an so sharp, I really like this. BW shows details so fine.

Oh wow! That is so dramatic, romantic and Gothic, so perfect in black and white, I can't even imagine it in color! Truly, that's the most beautiful black and white photo I think I've ever seen!

The details are so much clearer in monochrome, particularly of the church. What an attractive building.

Barbara said...

This photo is a real standout. BTW, I've been concerned about you with all the rioting in London and other places in England. Hope you and Dave weren't affected by it.

Ashley Sisk said...

That is incredibly beautiful.

Barbara said...

Barbara - thanks for the concern, we're fine. We live in a semi-rural location so didn't have any trouble here thank goodness. There were some trouble-makers joining in with the mayhem in Leicester (the nearest large city to us) but thankfully it was short-lived.

Barbara said...

Thanks for all the kind comments.

Laloofah: It was only a 'I wonder what it would look like in b&w...' moment that made me convert it! I liked the colour version - beautiful blue sky, white fluffy clouds, yellow cotswold stone church... but in the end I was drawn in by the dark side :O)

Almost spooky; maybe a little Photoshop?

Barbara said...

John - yes I liked the atmosphere the b&w created, so different to the colour. For those interested all I did with this was convert it to black and white, upped the contrast a little and then clarified it (in my very old version of paintshop) :O)

A fine example of one of the many beautiful churches you have in the UK. I'm always impressed by the way you can find them in even the tiniest village.

Absolutely stunning shot. Beautiful church.

Dragonstar said...

Beautiful! Your editing has worked well.

Karen said...

A terrific shot with great detail, and it looks slightly eerie.

MOL, your church looks like a set for Midsomer Murder!

I've got a piece in The Star, the Malaysian newspaper today that's a Living In Malaysia story like my blog. You can read it for free at http://tinyurl.com/3f3gd9z

Charming and very nice depth in the picture.

Love it. the picture flows, from the path to the soaring architecture and then the clouds.
