think such an ND-filter is a very useful thing and you can get a such beautiful result afterwards.. impressive outlook and a real fine capture!
un caro saludo, ciao Bernd

Black and white suits the mood perfectly in depicting this rather austere looking church. I like the depth offered by the leaf strewn foreground. Excellent sharpness and a fine range of tones.
Sergiom (39336) 2012-09-06 5:42
I like the leaves in the long foreground, the very low point of view and the wind movement in the tree on the left. Very well done.
Have a nice day

I like these fallen leaves on the ground. They made the picture more appealing.

lisa hi,i really like this,wonderfull in b&w,very impressive POV! dr

it is a wonderful composition and nicely presented in black and white. Right selection of mode I think... I can't remember any of your shot in monochrome. But it is really superb. Nice to see those trees beside the architecture... While those dried leafs added depth to it. I enjoyed the tone of the sky a lot... Excellent work. Tfs.
kathryn_weir (1742) 2012-09-06 9:51
I am so enjoying your big stopper collection :)
The B&W certainly works on these images very effectively. I did wonder how you might manage wind movement of trees or plants with these long exposures if it wasn't a completely still day but I see there is no management necessary, it just adds to the otherworldly feel

You are having fun with your Stopper filter, don't you?! It's a tool I'm looking forward to add to my backpack (Lee Big Stopper).
I think that you have used this tool in a fabulous context, with very relevant subject and under perfect weather conditions. The leaves on the ground are a great feature, and you have done the right thing by getting very low - that's the way to go! It isn't always something I enjoy on my own shots, but in this case, I like the moving branches on the upper part.
When a photographer achieve a high level like you are, I allow myself to nitpicking... :-p)) The only thing I would have been tempted to erase are these isolated branches that are floating close to the edge of the upper frame. I usually prefer to have entire bunch of leaves or branches in the frame, as the ones that are dangling around are nothing more than visual parasites. In this particular case, they bring nothing to the composition, and they are interrupting the movement in the clouds that you have worked hard to achieved.
But I'm repeating, this is nit-picking... as this shot is really awesome.

Moody shot with an autumnal feel. There is always something about the atmosphere of a church yard that lends itself to b and w. Nice level of contrast with good foreground interest that gives a sense of scale too relative to the tower.
corjan3 (1879) 2012-09-06 12:38
I have just acquired a filter kit (neutral density and graduated) and you have given me an excellent idea. What a fabulous image you have created. The sense of movement on the clouds and the trees is wonderful and the very low POV gives an immense sense of space against the height of the tower. What a pleasure to view. Best wishes.

Hello ou ciao Lisa
Une belle vue de cette église où le parterre de feuilles est très sympa.Le choix du N/B renforce l'impacte visuel crée par le flou des feuilles et du ciel.Belle réalisation
mkamionka (24583) 2012-09-06 13:56
I enjoy your experiments with the new filter and few more pictures like this and I will buy it as well. Charming church very well presented. I like the leaves in the foreground. The highlight are of course the smoothed clouds in the sky.
Sonata11 (28391) 2012-09-06 18:33
very beautiful composition of this nature, impressive architecture with great lighting, fantastic B&W colors you chosen for this pic, sharpness, clarity, exposure are very nice. Perfectly well done. Like it. Thank you.
All the best,
SnapRJW (18792) 2012-09-06 22:37
Hi Lisa - A quick peak at TE while traveling & my eye falls on this beauty. Fabulous low POV and textural detail in the leaves is highlighted by the use of B&W. The big stopper has done its job on the sky and wind=blown branches. I wish I was seeing this on my desktop rather that a piddly little lap top where I have to scroll down to see the image in sections! Go well. Rosemary
mozzy27 (2051) 2012-09-06 23:09
I like what your doing with all these filters, with some great effects as a result, looks very impressive in B&W. I have been absent from TE for a long time almost giving up on it but I have found some inspiration from all the photos taken with the 5D so I went out and bought one. Posting the rest of my stock photo's while I get to know the 5D, I would be more than happy with some starter tips! Keep up the good work
emka (58224) 2012-09-07 0:00
Ciao Lisa, fantastic black and white shot with the atmosphere of the old times. This Filter works very well, maybe I also shoud have one? fantastic depth and sharpness.
Warm regrads from Warsaw
PS. Why you don't use links ? (Point 19). It would be easier to see.
bayno (16241) 2012-09-07 1:27
si impara sempre qualcosa di nuovo dai tuoi scatti, il filtro neutrale(non ci capisco niente di filtri) serve per usare tempi più bassi e dare così quel effetto di mosso al cielo? ottimo il viraggio al B&W..il giocattolino funziona bene...super inquadratura...molto molto bella...
mauro61 (52527) 2012-09-07 2:27
effetto particolare anche se la parte in alto toglie un po' alla bellezza della definizione e dell'inquadratura.
Buona la scelta del bianco e nero con il soggetto rafforzato dalla tonalità,
un caro saluto
timecapturer (30394) 2012-09-07 4:06
real sense of atmosphere and drama in this excellent shot. Love the effect of the filter and the wonderful leafy fg detailing. It has an eerie almost haunted quality about it. Fascinating!
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.
Silvio1953 (98259) 2012-09-07 9:01
Ciao Lisa, gran fascino, magnificol'effetto derivante dalla lunga esposizione sulcielo, seppia di gran lusso, gran bel POV, bravissima, un abbraccio, Silvio
brianmcc (5536) 2012-09-07 14:30
another cracker with the big filter. the detail is stunning. again your black and white format is perfect to bring out all of the textures and tonal differences in the scene. great foreground with all the leaves, love the tree on the right. again the effect of the filter and long exposure on the clouds is very dramatic.
abmdsudi (26311) 2012-09-07 20:57
This looks like another shot of some stylish vampiric movies yet another real eerie vibe. Love your vision and I can see what you are trying to achieve here with a strange sense of peace about it for me. There is a gentleness to the tones and a strength in the architecture, a place that holds so many memories for sure. Immense capture LIsa, Lovely viewpoint with the fallen leaves guide through connecting to the prominent subject with the trees and the 'moving clouds', I am really overwhelmed by those highlights which you have captured admirably and thks to the filters effect. Your processing is so appealing, an interesting technique emplyed and lots of feeling about it. Well done, TFS

Un bianco e nero e dei grafismi che stanno crescendo in TE.
Una maturazione ed una volontà di cogliere quello che il colore "incanta" .
Il colore è bello, ma alcune volte è come una "maionese" o una donna che non ha virtù ...solo forme.
Il BW qui riporta all'ascesi e da una profondità tesa ad un traguardo.
ikeharel (37424) 2012-09-08 1:23
Mid winter in NSW, and seeing the leaves on ground, on a B&W photo - sure to give me a melancholy...
Yet, your photojob is remarkable, the outlines and other elements on the edifice are clearly shown.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
Noel_Byrne (7450) 2012-09-08 8:51
Another fine image, and I am delghted to see the other view of this wonderful little church. The way you have presented this, like the last shot is superb, and again I love the choice of sepia here. It adds age and mystery to the shot (Big shout out to the spooky tree on the right!!) and makes a brilliant picture.
dkmurphys (36857) 2012-09-08 11:14
Another attractive POV of that old church. I also like the choosen lack of colors. Well composed.
ourania (12469) 2012-09-08 12:50
Ciao cara Lisa,
una composizione ricca e tanto attraente. Le tonalita' grigie sono meravigliose e rendono l' immagine romantica e malinconica con un' intensita' sorpredente racchiusa nel quadro verticale. Oltre che le tonalita' e l' atmosfera, a questo effetto contribuiscono le dinamiche prospettive fino a e lungo entrambi i lati e l' altezza della chiesa. Il senso di spazio e' superbo, le tessiture vivaci, il movimento delle nuvole ed il vento che permea la scena son ben sentiti. L' immagine e' affascinante, complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
npecanhuk (53919) 2012-09-08 12:54
I love that!
Sepia, chosen low pov, vertical format, composition, exposure, level of sharpness and the great use of ND-filter are excellent photo qualities here, in this wonderful picture!
TFS - congrats,
carlo62 (12666) 2012-09-08 15:37
che profondità.... si vedono anche le formichine in primo piano, una sta salutando.
Grandissima nitidezza ed un cielo magnifico, il tutto condito da un B&W alla Hitchcock.
mirosu (5533) 2012-09-09 1:50
As I see from your gallery I missed many of yours excellent photos. This is one of them. Perfect conversion to B & W in gerat light. I like the composition with the ground covered with leaves in the front and the church framed by trees in the BG. The low angle viewpoint is very good and the verical format fit very well to it. Nicely done. Have a very nice week ahead.
sabermonajati (7603) 2012-09-09 5:33
amazing church with illustrated foreground you captured.
marcan44 (6223) 2012-09-09 10:25
magnifico B&W impreziosito da un POV eccellente con il prato pieno di foglie nel FG e poi sullo sfondo l'elegante edificio.
Immagino dalle foglie mosse dell'albero a sinistra e dalle nubi in cielo che corrono, che fosse una giornata molto ventosa e il tempo di posa di 15 secondi ha fornito questo effetto dinamico.
Una vera chicca!
ACL1978 (5793) 2012-09-10 12:59
Certainly a close cousin to your earlier shot of this church, Lisa. I like this one a ton - great and almost eerie vibe to it, with almost half the frame taken up by dead leaves on the ground and the rest by the church under a long exposure that adds nice movement to the sky and tree branches. Great contrast really brings out the details on the tower. Great use of your filter!
gus72 (2508) 2012-09-10 17:30
Ciao Bambina !!
I am learning more from your photos than from anybody else...... so many thanks !!
The effect at the top affecting the foliage and the clouds.... it is very interesting and artistic...... I also like the inclusion of the leaves on a large portion of the foreground.
in other words...... great execution and super presentation.
please..... do not buy those plastic open shoes....I hate them together with tattoos..... yuk..............
Waylim (22357) 2012-09-11 10:44
Interesting to see this presentation in Black and White. I'm recently experimenting more with B&W. Even if I don't think it will work but I will try anyway, and some really turn out pretty cool. As I see, this one turn out really cool too, and the semi sepia tone really adds to the mood of the image with falling leaves which give it that fall atmosphere and a sense of melancholic mood. I see the wind is very strong for I see the motion on the tree and the clouds.
Once againa great shot with good quality and the depth is wonderfull here.
Bluejeans (64239) 2012-09-11 11:38
Ola Lisa ,
Esta tua foto a preto e branco está fantástica prece uma infrared , as nuvens ficaram com uma fantástica sensação de movimento , gostei muito dos detalhes das folhas em primeiro plano , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
francio64 (38188) 2012-09-12 5:36
anche qui oltre la bella composizione, mi colpisce l'ottimo trattamento in bianco e nero.
adores (28248) 2012-09-20 14:37
I like this b&w! The sense of movement given by the branches is perfect and I really like the way you framed it, with this carpet of fallen leaves in foreground. Good atmosphere! - seems an autumn photo!
