Lansdowne Monument



A fairly conventional landscape shot for a change…  Converted to black & white in Photoshop Elements.

    I like the interesting contours at the bottom of the hill.

      Thank you. I agree that the contours at the bottom of the hill fort make the shot a lot more interesting.

    Great shot, Graham! I like the contours too, and what makes this great is the monument – and that tree down left!!!

      Thanks Truels – not my usual kind of photography, I’m pleased it seems to have worked.

    Not bad! Didn’t at first like it, but looking more at it I like the grain, and the almost featureless sky, and those wonderful contour and shadows on the grassland – good stuff! Adrian

      Thanks Adrian. I’m glad you like the graininess – lots of trial & error in Photoshop to get the quality of the black & white as I wanted it. Not my usual kind of shot, but I saw the scene & liked it, so shot it.

    I like this a lot 🙂 It really suits B&W and I really like the light in it 🙂

    There is nothing conventional about this shot, it’s magnificent in every way.

      Thanks Lynn. Maybe not totally concventional but more so than much of my work these days, more the kind of stuff I did a couple of years ago.
