Well done! The advantage of b&w is that... bon je vais le dire en francais: la pierre du premier plan se fond mieux dans le reste de l'image en n&b; en couleur je trouvais que ca faisait un veritable obstacle. Voila!
This is a well done composition of what looks like a complicated subject- lots of lines and openings. I'd crop the foreground just a little, but that's all. Very good.
Great location! It seems like there were really two shots in here -- one on the left-hand side looking through to the collapsed main section of the abbey, and one on the right-hand side looking through the supporting buttresses. I feel a *little* overwhelmed by all the 'things' happening in this shot, and since part of the abbey is falling outwards it's also making the photo feel off-level (which I'm having trouble with although it's nothing that could be 'fixed' by tilting the camera).
Axel, thank you for your comment and suggestion. That's funny: my daughter think, like you, it would be better in BW. See below the result...
There are the elements for a great picture here - ruins, trees, moss - however I think the foreground stone is distracting, it tends to break the harmony. b&w would fit here as well. 5/5
Wonderful location ... ... the shot works well in both black and white and color. This was one of the very first daughter houses of Citeaux, I believe, and shows all the signs of a Cistercian building. I have never been here, didn't know that it still existed. Thanks so much for this shot, Eric.
Thank you for comment and rate Ruin abbaye under rain...
