...as requested and promised the colour version of this scene.
Both versions are rather lovely, Dougie.
I think I might lean towards the black & white, though not deviating too far from the vertical.
P.S. And I see you've a colour mug shot to go with it! How distinguished you look.
A lovely shot with great lighting and composition. I never thought I'd see a location shot in in Scotland that looked so much like the Lincolnshire Wolds! Best wishes, Simon.
Awwww, yes! Nothing against the mono version you posted some days ago - but... yes, colour is holding a lot more life and warmth.
B E A U T I F U L !!!
Having switched back to the B and W version, I feel my sympathies lie more with the coloured version, esp. so as when I look out the window today, all is grey and colourless, wet, windy, drench +++ so the colour is so welcome.
a beauty ..
Beautiful in colour too Dougie.
The colour is beautiful, Dougie, but I prefer the mono none the less. Given your title the mood of this one is perhaps a little benign.
Of course, it's the people who make war, not the landscape . . . .
As a place that cannot I guess be separated from its history, b&w works better for me.
But the tones in the grasses are gloriously sharp and acerbic.
I love the colour in the fields and sky indicating a fine summer's day, but for drama the mono wins the day.
Colour for me Dougie.
And I noticed your new avatar pic too.
Puts me in mind of a High Court judge I had dealings with in the past !!
Vibrant colours, such a contrast to today's weather, probably worse for you up there! The blue/ yellow combination always works well.
Thanks your comment the other day - it's good to be back!
Love it!! really love it Dougie, the colour is so rich and the grass just sways
and the lone tree, and those little hedge trees on the horizon...perfect
They are both so good. Thank you for letting us see this one as well...I can't decide between the two, but the mono might just have the edge for me. Ann.
I will go with the colour Dougie.
Wonderful colours, comp and light.
An image with loads of clout, the contrasting colour adding to the appeal and beauty...
Colour for me Dougie, like this a lot, rich summer colours against a magnificent sky.
This represents the best in landscape photography. A simple scene which many would not observe, but which becomes a work of art when carefully composed within the frame. No excessive processing, because none is needed to make this the perfect little picture that it is. A genuine joy to view.
This is beautiful and a really well balanced composition. I had not seen the mono the other day and have just looked, I did not think it could have improved on this, but it does and is a superb conversion.
cracking light dougie a stunner
I concur with IanFlindt, Dougie.
As for comparing the two versions, I prefer not to, enjoying each in its own right.
Thanks to all for the ind comments on my image.
A very special Thank You to Ian Flindt for his User Award and his thoughtful comment.
Beautifully composed 'lone tree' image - love it.
Lovely shot !!.....the color version has a little more impact & warmth for me !
