    I find the subject a little too contrived. Beautiful sky and scenery though.

    I really want to be a bit close to the three shells to see a bit more texture there. Perhaps a bit of right and op crop could get me there.

I suspect you have got a great histogram and have covered the whole tonal range, which is one of the ways of delivering a top b&w image. I will therefore ignore the crop 'problem' (my problem of course not yours) and put in in my early favourites.

    This should work better than it does for me. It has all the necessary elements for a compelling b&w image but I find the shells too small, the rock too large and the sky perfect but inadequately flat - the clouds and shells should pop. I wonder what more contrast would have done or maybe selective contrast to avoid turning the rock into a solid black mass. Vying for my TT.
