As with your photo of St. Aubert's Chapel, this also elicits a very strong emotion in me. Absolutely amazing how you bring out the reclusiveness and solitude in these scenes. Your decision to use monochrome for your shots really adds to the mood of loneliness. Although I am sure color shots would look nice, your choice to utilize the monochromatic medium effectively enhances the viewer's experience a thousand fold. (Nothing like B&W to bring out that stark contrast!) Thanks again for sharing!

Hi Greg,

Of course I know the color raw-file.. I must say it doesn't work for me at all. I agree with you, for me monochrome gives the power to this image..

thanks!

Hi Srdjan,

Thank you :aww:

I use a neutral density filter with 10 stops, thus making very long exposures possible..

It's about 12 km to the west, on the large print of this you can see it beside the chapel on the horizon..
