Converted this to a B&W after a suggestion posted in the colour version. While I am no expert in B&W my first thought are this could be a bit contrasty. Chris

Hey Chris, great first step - a fine conversion. I'm guessing those highlights in the far rafters were hard to control.

You seem to have the eye for it - maybe keep an eye out for stuff like this by others to see their approach?

Good luck, happy journeys :) Cheers, Mark

Mark thanks for the heads up and I am sure if I slowed down a bit I could tease out the detail in the rafters without blowing them out so much. Chris

This is a fine picture nether-the-less Chris. As you say just a bit on the contrasty side but it sure has a lot of bite and character. Well done!. Herb

Hello Chris, great shoot and delightful composition. I like old sheds and have some proposal from outside.

Good job!

Best wishes from Germany Micha

Catherine,Bruce, Micha, Luso and Mario thanks for your wonderful comments and Y*s. I have pulled back from Panoramino in the last few months and have not been replying to a lot of the comments posted to my images. But it just happened that last night I won my local camera club B&W print of the year with this image so I am pretty chuffed. Cheers Chris
