For a second there I thought that might be a 'vintage effect' Peter! Then it might not even be considered a photo

Well, I'm not worried about that - main thing I feel is that the processing suits the subject, and it certainly does here I think, so a good choice! Has good atmosphere, and a lot of fine detail on the building textures.

Good rendition of emulating historical photographic values. Subject cries out for the treatment perceived and executed so well.
"The Latent Image that exists before development is a truly mystical and exciting entity and some subsequent individual photographs can make the spine tingle."

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

I must admit that this version does seem to be much better than the original full colour version I'd posted earlier !
I can't quite 'put my finger on it' but I think the colours in the original confused the main subject whereas converting to 'monochrome' lets the subject come through. I'm still just a 'learner' when it comes to PP so I'm glad I tried the experiment, and thanks again for all the comments.

Best regards
