...take away the colour and the mood and tones are left, and of course the weather, I think it suits this image right down to the ground.

A rather brilliant example of monochromatic landscape photography, which for me holds the secrets to a great photographs.

Sometimes there is a monochrome feeling about the weather

Suits the image right up to the sky, too......
I remain convinced that monochrome takes us to the heart of the matter more quickly than colour.

Interesting comparison. I've been back and looked at Summer weather alongside this, I do prefer the harmony of mono but the steely blue/grey cloud reflections in colour are so beautiful. I wonder how a tiny hint of blue toning would work in this?

It's not so often that I prefer a mono version to the coloured, but I agree with you that for this image it works brilliantly, Dougie.
Nice to see you back......I was wondering.......

I'm fine Ronnie and even better after your UA, very kind mate.

I was away at friends in Fairlie and had a great couple of days. Talked my head off as did they, you wouldn't believe the stories we all recalled.

Thanks again Ronnie. GrinGrinGrin

Lovely mono Dougie and well processed. I particularly like that rasied tone on the Blackmount to give the image the layered effect.

I like the effect created here by the b&w convertion, Dougie. The water appears almost to be two separate lakes divided by the change of light in the middle. The (apparent) lack of any added filter effect makes for a very natural look, which is definately a plus.

I liked the colour version of this but agree that this mono version works very well.

This works well in mono Dougie, allows you to push the contrast a bit more
