Yosemite Valley: Half Dome

I had to try this one in B&W.... (see color in V2)

Half Dome is probably one of the most easily recognized formations in Yosemite valley. The summit can be reached by hiking 7 miles with an elevation change of over 4000 feet. During the last part of the accent the incline is over 50 degrees. There is a cable railing to give you something to hang onto as you reach the summit.

PLEASE VIEW LARGE!

What a fine image in B&W. You are a very fine photographer, as these last images have shown.

definately preferred monochrome version . Very Ansell Adamesque !
Beautiful textures in all areas.The darker trees give a good base to the picture and the tonal range is excellent

This is a great shot, the clouds and lighting highlight the sheer scale of this monster. Brought back fond memories of my trip there 2 years back. Prefer the B&W as the colour one is distracting due to the orange and green bits on the right!

I really like the mono image. The clouds make it. Seems to me that you could do something even more dramatic. Try lifting the contrast overall a little and use layers to adjust the sky to give a deep orange filter effect. It's fine as it is, but you might like the effect.

B&W work well here, a fine conversion. Sorry I've been clicking and running recently, trying to catch up, but this series is providing a lot of interest, visual and narrative. Thanks for these uploads, many of them show aspects of your country that we don't usually get to see, and show them very well.

Another image which draws me in, wanting to be there. For me the colour version is more attractive Ty, perhaps because I want to enjoy the reality of the experience.
