The composition is perfect: the eye follows the river to go toward the old farm.
The BW suits very well to the subject.

Great mood for this well composed shot. I like the low angle of view and the way the little rivulet draws us toward the ruined farmhouse. Black and white was exactly the right medium; superb conversion.

Fantastic composition, contrast and textures collected. The photo is very artistic, like a charcoal drawing or pen ... Congratulations. Thanks for sharing.

the dilapidated buildings make good subjects for your mono treatment with a nice moody atmosphere being created by the predominantly darker tones,.
The composition work very well for both of the images.

these abandoned ruins in Iceland were some of my favorites that i've ever seen!
they can be found all over the country.
really like the black and white mood you've created, makes a strong impact visually don't you think?

Stonking shot. Monochrome, so not attracting the attention it deserves on TE. But I love the tonal rendition, and the composition, which is more evident in b/w as it reduces areas to mottled blocks of tone. Gorgeous work.
