Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge

This looks an interesting location with the chimney forming a key part and influencing your choice of composition. I like the mono conversion though personally I think there is scope to make it a little darker throughout to give it a bit more body. The side lighting on the facing building enhances the textures of the brickwork nicely and the trees are quite vibrant too. A commendable job, well done Jonathon.

Excellent textures and tones. Is that a smokestack? Tough to include in the composition, but you did a nice job of it.
