I rather liked the patterns created by the reflections here and with the giant crane in the distance framed by the overhead walkway. I felt the scene lent itself to B and W conversion.
V 2 shows the original colour file.

My thanks to all who visited Loch Tulla with me.......your comments are so much appreciated.

Ronnie.

Wonderful reflections, Ronnie, and I agree with you, the b&w conversion suits this image very well. Carol

Great monochrome image, super composition with the Titan crane tucked in the corner so neatly Ronnie. Sharp all the way through from the birds to the city skyline. Took me a while to figure where this was taken from. I've never walked around here, should have, I might have found this.

Like the lines and angles in this, Ronnie, and some nice reflections in the water, with just enough rippling in the water to break it up slightly without losing the shapes. Mono for me Wink

Pretty Perfect Pov, Ronnie. I find the colour version very attractive because of the nice tones, but I do agree that it lends itself to mono, and that it strengthens the strong lines and reflections.

Seldom I say it, but the B&W is THE shot Ronnie, it shows off this most elaborate walkway so much better, I've tried to figure out where it is, I believe that's the Finnieston crane in the bg., but am lost, also why is it, and where does it go from, to?, at times I think they've gone mad along the Glasgow waterfront, such a hodgepodge of styles!
