Scotney Castle
A National Trust property recently visited, this is just the ruins of the original castle now only about 25% remaining.
But another larger property in good condition in the same grounds.

Well apart from a couple of suggestions Jeffrey your experiment has worked very well indeed.
A sharp contrasty mono, which I like very much. It only needs, for me anyway, a slight crop top and bottom and just over a degree of cw rotation.
Like it loads, good work Jeffrey.

love the fine detail in the castle and surroundings, very good B&W conversion just needs a crop top and bottom to focus on the main detail. very well done

Wow Jeffrey this is gorgeous in Mono. Nice & sharp & showing some fine details on the castle with good reflections. Looks a very picturesque place to go. Well taken & edited.

I had my only visit to the castle a year or so ago (Queen's Jubilee whenever that was) . Alas, the old castle itself was not open to the public at the time. I'm trying not to let my anti-B&W feeling prejudice this but I think this would have more impact in colour. Having said that perhaps, the weather conditions made B&W more of an obvious choice. A crop off the top would improve the composition for me.

I too like this in mono, good detail and composition, I would also agree with the comments above regarding the crop and rotation, I was going to suggest a reduction in brightness, but as no one else has commented it could just be my monitor being a tad bright.

I am never really keen on central horizons unless of course the reflections demand it, which here I don't think they do. I can see the picture in colour with 2/3 sky and the reflection of the castle still maintained in full.

Well Jeff I think you should do more! - Great detail especially in the foilage. I assume it's bright daylight but with the mono it looks twilight/ evening and a bit mysterious and slightly Gothic! Please do more!
