Nelly's Moss revisited

By mrswoolybill
When this appeared in colour, Leo asked about b&w. I think it works. Cyanotype toning for the version.
Thanks for looking,

Looking good in mono! I prefer the toning of the lead.

Despite the fact that I have a completely open mind when it comes to choosing between colour and b&w (Wink) I have to say these two versions are far better than the original colour one.

I do like the warmth of the lead image but then I also like the greater contrast of the version. Anyway Moira it is a beautiful reflection image.

The version for me, Moira.

Your lead image my favourite for its processing, Moira but both very acceptable in their own right.

Almost like a mirage. I think I prefer the alternative version this time, Moira.

I like the pen and ink wash effect given by the reflection. On balance I prefer the cool tones of the version, but both are good.

Yes, it works in mono for me, Moira 👍 Hard to decide between the two versions here, probably the lead I think... 😃
