Excellent shot, I love the cloud drifting between the two peaks, very atmospheric. Perfect composition and strong tonal ranges make it a great black and white subject. Great work.

Beautiful seascape shot. I think the conversion to B&W works very well for this scene. This has alot of strong contrast to accent the B&W.

Excellent in B&W Steve.
I think the B&W brings out the FG rocks detail and rugged character nicely..
A lovely composition, with the distant islands shrouded in cloud very nice :)

wow - you have really caught the atmosphere exceptionally well in this picture. They are so distinctive and the rock formations are so clear in B&W.

Vraiment un beau paysage pris en noir et blanc.Les deux Rochers dans le brouillard me font penser a des scènes dans le seigneur des anneaux. .
Bravo et merci....JP

Wow, this is a beautiful B & W image Stephen. It has a great range of values and the two peaks rising out of the mist makes for a very interesting subject.
Thanks for sharing

Wow.... outstanding! I have developed a love for 'black and white' photography. It appears to me that you can 'see' more in a B&W shot as the colours are not there to catch the eye, therefore allowing more detail to come to the fore. Congrats.... love this shot. Thank you!

The B&W works great! I like the POV a lot and I love the rocks in BG. They look a bit unreal covered with mist.

Great shot from a brilliant viewpoint! The picture has so much going for it. The B&W conversion brings out the ruggedness of the rocks in the foreground, which almost seem like mirror images of the islands themselves. The mist gives the islands a sense of mystery and foreboding.
I don't know if you agree that for this composition, the typical 'soft' Irish weather, might have added to the remoteness of the islands and treacherousness of the crossing and explained why 7th century monks chose this location to separate themselves from worldly distractions.
Not that I was wishing your trip was rained on, you understand, just for this shot!
