Very well taken and edited Keith, there is great detail in the abbey with lovely tones throughout the image. The composition works very well with the road sweeping across the foreground leading into the abbey, The vignette works very well darkening the sky and concentrating the eye on the main part of the image.

There's a wealth of detail in this right from the corner stones above the entrance to the manor house(?) to the sheep on the far hillside. It's an image of two halves; the lower part with the abbey ruins and surrounding buildings in the foreground lit by the late winter sun and then the upper part looking almost like a painted backdrop.The mono presentation makes it look like something from an old tourist brochure (nothing wrong in that).

The treatment of the Abbey buildings has almost a 3D quality. Maybe just a tad too much for my taste but a fine image none the less

I have come back to this a few times, was just not sure about the vignette, but perhaps Peter has summed it up with reference to it concentrating the eyes to the main subject.
Lots of detail to be seen and a well chosen POV, a pity that the tree on the LH side obscures the end of that building, as I think a little more view on that side might have been better.
But a very nice image well seen, taken and certainly well edited.

Ye Gods.....can I only give this a TEN it deserves more.
I have just spent an enjoyable few minutes ,with this at full screen, letting my eyes wander round this gorgeous scene (I was eating me Creme Egg too )
Chock full of detail and interest, pin sharp, 3D and tones galore, fantastic just bloody fantastic Keith, excellent work SIR, take a BOW.
Nothing out of the ordinary in the editing panel, but methinks there is more to it than that

Thanks guys. The editing is exactly what it says on the tin George, no plugins, addins or e-numbers, just concentrated hard work in the manner aforesaid - and the same goes for the stepping stones shot.

Well worth the effort then Keith.

A superb shot Keith. A pin sharp shot showing loads of details & the editing is superb. The stonework shows plenty of details in it, & I like how the path curves around. You can even make out a windy path to the left that takes you up into the hills in the distance. I think theis deserves a ten as well.

Very nice B&W convention for all the reasons stated above, I like it a lot
