looks like a church in the middle of nowhere. the pp works a lot here, the church looks somehow as the source of light in a distant place soaked in darkness. ethereal clouds add to the mystical mood.

Cette phot était définitivement destinée à être prise en noir et blanc. La lumière frappe la petit église comme si elle venait directement de Dieu et les nuages sont magnifiques.Bravo.

Hello Trevor ,
I lie a lot this view of this superb little church , with the pyramidal summit in the BG . The sky and the choice of B&W create a very fine atmosphere .

Very beautiful black and white scene, the church building itself is really interesting, and taken from a great point of view. The clouds are very mysterious and add a wonderful extra element to the shot. It looks as if the clouds are emanating from the church itself.
All the best

This is very atmospheric in B&W Trevor. Strange how the mountain peak echos the shape of the church spire! The sky is a definite plus here, full of movement and drama. Super! Warm regards Rosemary

a stunning B&W shot. The dramatic light is awesome and your PP enhanced it quite beautifully. Those curvy clouds are very dynamic, they seem to emanate from the church itself and the whole scene has a great stark and moody atmosphere.

within this great B&W view, it is even possible to wonder if the sky is overcast with thin clouds or even shining from aurora borealis...

A church is a place to pray, to feel faith and hope. This image inspires the opposite, but is beautiful, after all.

Good management of the gray scale and good point of view I appreciate the architecture volume
