Desperate Dilapidation.

Once part of a thriving farm this old barn is now derelict and falling into total ruin. Happily the rafters are home to a beautiful tawny owl who temporarily vacated his home on my approach. He has since returned.
A super capture of dereliction, looks great in monochrome. Fav!! 😀

So many of these decaying all over our country Sebastian. Farming not once what it was. At least your owl is putting it to use. Your POV shows Nature encroaching very starkly.

Great weathered textures

Wow! What a treat to see the owl!

The textures capture decay and make it both artistic and interesting.

Stunning b&w really highlights the textures.

Great B&W. Love all the wispy grass growing around the ruins

Looks good in b&w. I hope somebody restores it one day.

Great shot, composition, textures

It's certainly been taken over by the "garden"!

I prefer this one Sebastian - I think the wider composition gives context to the buildings: I also prefer the crisp pure B&W processing in this one. Silver Efex Pro2 is a powerful conversion tool but it takes a while to learn to get the best out of it. Everyone starts with the pre-sets but I usually find that starting from scratch with the neutral conversion and applying manual adjustments gives me a result which I prefer.

@vignouse Thank you very much for your help as always, Richard. At least the pre-set give you a starting point before you set off in a custom direction. Useful when you've only had a short while to learn Silver Efex and are used to using LR (after the debacle of Aperture's demise).

@365projectorgsebgritt Have you discovered yet that if you click on the sliders for Brightness, Contrast and Structure a new menu drops down with sliders for specific targeted adjustments and this is where you want to go to get your image precisely fine tuned... have fun!

@vignouse My hero, Richard. Thanks.
