What very kind words, Tim. If you really want a tip or two about composition I'd say that lead-in lines are vital if you can line them up); the forground is at least as important as the view itself and, contrary to popular belief, you really don't need ultra wide lenses for landscapes.
As for conversion...that's another story!
Best wishes,

Andrew

Nice shot

The more I look at this the more I like it - the power/ phone lines certainly give it the old and not so old look
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Axel, the slate quarries of North Wales once provided roofing slates which were exported all over the worl. The industry is in terminal decline with only a couple of quarries still operating. The cutting shed is where the slates were sized and split, often by hand or using crude rotary cutting machines.

What always surprises me, Andrew, is your choice of subjects. I would probably have been interested in that quarry but only taken a quick shot.You have composed a careful viewpoint and converted it beautifully so that it would suite a large print in a photographic exhibition.
Which in a way, it is, I suppose!

Best wishes
