Mont Saint-Michel in Black&White

After previously posting some of my colour photos of Saint-Michel, I just finished scanning in the black and white picture I had taken with a subsequent visit. I prefer the angles I picked on this visit. To me it shows that subsequent visits of the same subject, years apart in this case, can be very helpful to take better compositions. I like the space in these photos and the added mystery that comes with the graininess of the black and white photo. On the other hand, they could have been sharper and a better filter might have cut better through the haziness of the village in the distance although, on the other hand, this adds to the atmosphere.

Camera: Pentax MZ-3, lenses: SMC Pentax F1:4-5.6 35-80mm
