Shot just as the sun was setting, everything was bathed in a purpleish light that gave excellent contrast to the stonework. Editing this I knew right away that a good black and white conversion was essential.

A manual duotone used here with duotone warm grey and cool grey.

Very much a last minute entry, completed with four minutes to go.

Editing: cloning, curves, desaturation, curves, resize, duotone, sharpen.

Outtakes - original colour, and a warm grey duotone:

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge

What an unusual window! Your viewpoint with the illuminated window behind has highlighted the detail of the bells making them even more prominent and apípealíing, sorry couldnít resist that. You were right to consider this for mono and a good job youíve done of it too, there is a good range on tones with plenty of detail throughout. Well spotted Eugene, hope you enjoyed your time in Budapest.

I didn't get to vote on this challenge, but if I hadn't fallen asleep I would have given your photo a 10. It's a beautiful shot.
