Monochrome Deep...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...I posted this as colour but the monochrome version was my own personal favourite. The pebbles seemed to me to be sliding under the mountains reflection.

Dougie, super mono, I like that there is no clouds in your shot, allows the eyes to focus on the true quality of the reflection. Lovely image.........

Amazing shot! The water is so still, and makes such a great reflection! Such deep tones as well! Well done!

The colour was terrific, the mono is even more so. Fine detail in the f/g, exquisite reflection and a wide variety of tones; this time around my eye is drawn to the subtle lines of the slope rising from left to right and perfectly contained within the frame. A Cuillin peak that I could have climbed in my youth but did not know of until now . . .

I remember the colour well, but I do prefer this, simply for the harmony that it brings, the way it links the different levels that rise up through the frame.

I have been flicking back and forth between this B and W version and the original coloured one, Dougie, and whilst I can see the attractions of this one and appreciate the comments by yourself and others above, my own preference resides with the coloured: sorry to be out of kilter with the majority view.
But no matter, the composition and portrait format are so well suited, and the scene captured under wonderful conditions, sun and mirror flat water for the reflections and a glimpse of the loch bed.

It would be a dull world indeed if we all though the same way Ronnie.

I do like the vertical proportions Dougie. The 'real' bit only, at best, one third of the whole image. The depth to the reflection and fg detail occupying, quite rightly, most of the image. I almost feel the reflected mountain is like the roof at the opening of an under water cave or grotto - you could swim under it and disappear into the darkness beyond.

The pebbles do seem to be sliding under the mountain reflection. Almost like a cave under them. Beautiful in mono too Dougie.......Sandy

The mono isolates motives so you concentrates on fewer elements.

Lovely done Peter

Beautiful tones Dougie, and a wonderful 3 dimensional quality about it.

It works equally well in mono for me, Dougie. Excellent.
