Sorry for pulling the last image and the clicks - for some reason it just doesn't look right on the web - nothing like the picture in PS or the print.

A mono conversion of a recent image from Derwent. Oh I must get some fresh stuff, hope the weathers OK on Sunday !!!

Hi Nick
Like this, great tones and true blacks, reflections are excellent.
Noticed your comments about last upload, I had a problem with colours that were very muted when uploaded, nothing like the original, after getting advice from the team and members! I now save the photo for uploading with the save to web function, make sure the srgb window is ticked, this site did not recognise the profile I was using, hope this helps.

Regards

Trev.

Thanks Trev, it was a mono (i always use sRGB etc) just sometimes due to compression for the web, the blacks and whites "crunch" losing detail one of those things I think. It doesn't bother me unduly as all images are intended for print. Its partly down to my style of high contrast images. I've ticked mark as useful as it may help others with upload problems.

Thanks again for your time.

A strongly composed image, Nick. I like the range of tones and contrast which seems to suit the B and W presentation so well, and with this shot what stands pout for me is the banding of light and dark from top to bottom giving a beautifully balanced image. Just wish I had more than one vote to offer.
Ronnie.

Love the tranquility and the conversion. There is a 'but' though......some of the trees and bushes on the island seem to have lost detail, looking just like blocks of black or grey....though it might just be me Wink

No your right Martin, although the print and original TIFF are OK, I think its the same problem I often get with mono uploads, the blacks frequently use detail.

Certainly a nice B&W but I personally prefer colour shot's for this area of the country.
