I've been umming and arring on whether to upload this after the interest in the colour version.
But, I've cropped it tighter so, to me at least, it does seem a slightly different image.
Try and stay dry this weekend.
Thanks for looking, Paul
Excellent image!! Plenty of impact and contrast. Excellent use of lead in lines with the ropes and the wooden beam onthe edge.
Wow, what a transformation. Superb! Paul
Nice B/W image, like the composition, with lots of Impact.
I have to say I prefer this version. It's more atmospheric and has more impact IMO
Had I not seen the colour version then I'd be mighty impressed with this. But looking at the two, the colour version is IMO far stronger. Looks a little bright around the foreground ropes and that thing they're tied to as well, but that may just be me being over fussy.
Agree with Dave - colour for me also, but a damn fine conversion anyway.
Works in b&w, too, but it does have less impact than the colour original.
Beautifull image, I love the wide range of the tones from whites by greys to blacks, the dramatic angle makes that pic standout from many similar pictures on EPZ, very very well done.
Great, now I don't know which to like more. Maybe the colour one as it appears more dramatic.
Good strong and dramatic picture
damn fine conversion indeed
Absolutely fantastic. The thumbnail just demanded to be clicked. I love B&W.
Excellent Paul, but I was spoiled when I saw the colour version. Both are outstanding but I prefer the colour one
A very good shot, but it lacks the impact of the colour incarnation. I can appreciate the skill that has gone into both the shot and the processing, but it is just lacking the real eye catching qualities so present in the colour shot imho.
thats quite beautiful Paul, lovely.
Another beauty Paul.
Beauty of a conversion paul but I'm another for the colour one.
Put me down for both. Just beautiful and powerful photography.
Fantastic. Gets my vote without a doubt. I didn't see the colour version, but this looks great in B&W.
Well, thanks everyone for the comments.
Good to see a bit of differing of opinion on colour vs b+w.
Cheers again, Paul
Colour gets my vote.
But so does this
Can't decide between the 2, they're both very good !
Converts well but I think for me, the colour version has the edge.
Fantastic. Love it. Well done
I think the foreground has as much impact as the colour and the keyside, but not the boats, they seem a bit washed out ocross the middle area's, tip of the boat, bottom of wheelhouse etc.?
Still has impact in mono, which proves that it is the seeing eye Paul. Ron.
This is better than the colour version (IMO). Simply fantastic
Great composition and i think it works a treat in B/W.
This has much more impact than the colour.Brilliant work.
Thanks everyone for the feedback.
I guess Pete preferred the colour one too...just
Cheers All, Paul
simply stunning! well deserved HC, clix
Fabulous, the angle is superb, so dramatic.
Very nice indeed!
I think it has more impact in Mono. Excellent convertion as well. Keep them coming!
Outstanding work.. !!!
Loved the colour version but this is still an outstanding conversion to mono. Well done on your HC.
Impressive conversion - congrats ...
Love them both, but I think I prefer B&W.
Very nice conversion!
I like the tighter crop and the near mooring, great impact and good treatment.
masterful conversion, brilliant
This really is an eye catching and very pleasing shot. The textures and mood added by the toning look so good
Absolute belter Paul - definitely prefer this in mono, it complements the beat up appearance of the ships and dock.
Icreadable..your Post Production talents are among the best Congrats on RC and HC Awards
Nice conversion to the colour masterpiece, great tones throughout.
