Clock Tower and Oval Window
I managed an hours recuperative walk around the stables at Nostell Priory to day and took the opportunity to capture this shot. It's one I have been after for a while but getting the sun and a few clouds in the right place has been a problem but I struck it lucky today although a bit more of the fluffy stuff would have been nice.

There you go again, complaining about the clouds
Another cracking mono from the expert and no mistake.
The apex of the building, clock tower, cupola and weather vane all 3D like against the fluffy backdrop.
An inspired pov and crop, gorgeous tones, pin sharp and no deep shadows, excellent work Sir that deserves a ten from me.
Luv it, just luv it.

Very good image for all of the above, also like the detail of the base of the cupola is it riveted copper?
Smashing image well done

Thanks guys. I haven't been able to find out any construction details Steve but the stepped plinth below the clock housing looks decidedly peculiar to me!

A very nice picture, not too sure about mono (Colour might have given better definition of the vane against the blue sky) but a good composition with the tower off centre and close to a third. the circular window making a nice balance.

As it is one of the notable features of the building Frank I have to point out that the window is oval not round, perhaps you missed the title.

Yes struck lucky indeed Keith a really nice image, late with comment but summed up by George perfectly.
Perhaps I am missing the point but I find it hard to break away from colour. I would think a colour version would look good with the blue sky, and show the cladding on the clock tower, is it lead or copper ???

It works very well for me in B&W, with great detail and a full range of tones in the stonework and clocktower. Very well taken and edited Keith.

I wasn't going to mention the "c.." word but as Jeffrey has brought it up... No, I'm happy with this in b&W. George has said it all for me. Very nicely done.
