    Probably needs a reshoot to make more of the chimneys...

    I like this shot a lot. A couple of things you might want to consider though are the light trails and the end walls of the building. On the former, I don't think they add much in a b+w shot and are a bit of a distraction from a very interesting building. On the end walls (left end and about half way down 1st & 2nd floors), I'd like to see more detail in them, so perhaps they could be dodged a little. This last comment may be more to do with the size of the image on the screen here - got a bigger one we could look at?

    Thank you for the feedback Chris. Yes, I agree with everything you say. I do have a version without the light trails and my mono conversion has lost too much detail in the shadow areas. I also think my angle is slightly wrong and I need to reshoot a little more face on. I may try and convert another RAW without the light rails and try to get more detail in the shadows.

    Thank a lot :thumbup:

    Another one a few days later at a slightly different angle. Seems to be some distortion creeping in!
