This was taken near Vik in Iceland. I have not done much with B&W so please give feed back. I think I am happy with the composition.

Really love the depth of field in this image. The great detail of the fore and mid ground gives way to a surprising sharp silhouette yet the contrast runs counter to what the mind would traditionally expect with the distant horizon line growing less contrasty rather than more. Ultimately it creates an image of great depth, texture and detail that really pulls a viewer into it.

I like this picture Dave .... I also like the bright part of the sky being central ... I'm just wondering if the transition of the sky in the original was as harsh as it has come out in the black and white?....

Thanks for the comments
Yes shine, It was a very bright morning with clear skies ( 2sec, f/11, ISO 100). This scene was almost B&W on its own with black rocks and dolomite cliffs and shooting at the sun!
I will try and fix the transition some time.
