    Hi Ben

    I really like that.

    The cnage to B/w has worked brilliant.

    Would love to see the colour shot if you get a chance.

    All the best

    Ray

    Ben,

    I agree a great great shot for conversion, Bravo on your great composition and eye. Great capture.

    Might I suggest that you consider even adjusting the levels even more and create much more contrast? Try moving the black level up a lot and moving the midrange down to around .9. This is a great shot, but I think a lot of contrast, silhouette, would work even better. By doing this I think you could isolate the center bright spot/sun, and create more contrast between the shadows. If you would like me to post a quick sample let me know.

    Also, keep in mind I like a lot of blacks, contrast, and silhouetted shapes in my BW images. Only my personal taste, not right or wrong.

    Super super image, I just like this shot in BW, hence why I am so interested in it. Bravo.

    Wade

    I like the b/w version very much, more than the color one. I also like the way you rendered it. Nice shot and composition.
     
  10. Ben:

    Very nice. I agree with Wade that a bit more contract might help, but that is the beauty of photography. Everyones eye is different and I can't really find any fault in this great image.

    Wade,
    Thanks for your comments.
    I call this picture "Morning..." so I rendered in a way that it could reflect the feeling of morning, however I still would like to see your sample.

    Heiko,
    Thanks

    Gil,
    Thanks for your compliment
    In my opinion, photography is a way for us to capture the surrounding and also to express our feeling, sometime it is more or less like a poem without words.

    Ben,

    Once again, mine is just a different opinion, Your intended title now that I have heard it doesn't seem to fit my conversion! As stated in the other reply, I tend toward the "dark" side with my BW images. I don't know why, I just do, so here goes, a quick dirty conversion from your low res color file:

    (ps I have mentioned that I really really like this shot! :biggrin: )

    Wade,
    Thanks for taking your time to render this, somehow I really like it ( sincerely ) because it reveals different feeling and mood.
    Your suggestion is greatly appreciated. Don't hesitate to give me feedback on my work, that is how I could improve my skill.

    Just browsed your site, you have a very impressive collection of works. BW Landscapes Vol1 collection is stunning.
