The last of my holiday photos.
Thanks for your votes and comments on "Cannon Dub," and particularly to Ann and Charlotte for their UAs.
Special thanks also to Moira and Bill for their UAs on "across the lake."
Magnificent... not sure I can choose between them, but I think that I just edging towards the mono.
V2 for me Alan....with a white frame I love the strong contrast of the mono. For me, sometimes colour gets in the way....although both are equally exquisite images. Another WOW! Shot Alan, you're on a roll
V2 for me Alan excellent
I really like the colour version but would prefer the green to be toned down a tad. The mono has that WOW factor! Is it a different image too? Great stuff Alan!
I prefer this one but as Ann suggests the greens could be lower. InScotland we have more brown at this time of year.
Colour grabs me

Originally conceived as B&W ( it's the same image in both versions, just a slightly different crop ) but I decided I liked the acidic green.
The colour version made me think of Klimt's landscapes....not that it's in the same league!!
V2 for me has the edge.
It's beautiful in colour and mono - and I did think you had considered the greens carefully having seen comments you've made in the past. Just my opinion, and I still love it!
Two different pictures. Yes I like the acid yellow/green, but the bark textures come over better in V2. Silver birches were made for b&w...

agreed. as you say... 2 different pictures
A worthwhile holiday photographically, then?
I'll go for the mono, too, not knowing enough of Klimt to venture any comparison with the colour version. There is a dreamy fuzziness in both (I'm not going to call it softness; that has a different feel about it); the mono reduces some of the background leaves to a tantalising patch on the right - like a vague ghostly apparition, a suggestion of the Erlkönig materialising in the forest.

Cheers, Bill, spot on observations.
Just goes to show what a difference colour makes....
V1 looks warm, inviting and a nice place to explore...
V2 looks eerie ...dont go any further
Great work, two images in one
Excellent 'holiday photos'.
Like both pics, V2 more by a shade...
V2 has a mysterious, almost supernatural feel to it with the high contrast and receding into darkness; my favourite version.
Mono version for me.. The silver quality on the bark screeches mono ....very atmospheric.. Excellent images, both
Interesting to read the comments above , esp. re. the colours in V 1: I like it very much and it may be that you have enhanced the greens a tad, and if so it works for me.
But having said that, I think the B and W version does carry the greater impact.
PS. ........ have enjoyed looking through some of your recent images and I am impressed.......will keep a look out for more from you in the future, Alan.........R.
Spot on, Ronnie. As Moira said, it's two different pictures really
Thanks for your comments, they're much appreciated.
V1 has a painting quality that V2 does not. I am inclined towards colour.
Beautiful shot, Alan.
Looks like an army of birches ready to march into the darkness. That sinister quality is there again especially in V2 which is my favourite of the two. Another great image.
Must say I love bot versions here.
I don't find the colours overdone at all (my daughter has Klimt in her lounge)
and there is a lovely painterly feel to both, showing more so in the colour.
The mono is wonderful for tone and contrast.
I'm always looking for ideas for mono for club competitions.
