Taken about a month back, the derelict hoverport nr Ramsgate, only the landing area is there, so it is preety barron, apologies for the lack of interest , could only find this weed growing but the sky was awesome which rescues the image a little. Version in colour attached.
Cheers,
Darryl. Smile

The mono is a strong image, Darryl, but blue/green/yellow are complementary colours and look so good together I've got to go with v2. The composition is excellent, I think most people would have walked past without spotting the potential.

Well composed from a low viewpoint placing the flowering weed against the sky. Whilst I like the B and W version, I feel that the colour version does carry more impact, Darryl.
Perhaps by placing the mono version at V 1 you were anticipating it might be the preferred of the two, but it will be interesting to come back later and see what the consensus opinion is.

I am of the same opinion, Darryl. If I am not mistaken, the weed is edible and has a strong smell.

A stunning piece Darryl which you have captured from what looks like a back breaking pov. The piece certainly working well in either format, however I think it more suited to the rather moody mono.

I like both images but version 2 just edges it for me. I like the vibrancy of the colours you have created a good image virtually out of nothing.

Spot on capture. Both variants are amazing. The tonal range and texture in V1 edges it for me.

Darryl, I absolutely love this. I see Dave prefers the colour version, so it really is all about personal tastes isn;t it.

For me, the mono is a touch of genius, the cloud formation lends itself perfectly to the black & white processing.
