Port Glasgow Lighthouse

By Irishkate  
We were supposed to be going to Glasgow's Botanic Gardens tonight
but only one girl from Camera Club showed up, so we just went down the coast to Port Glasgow where this was taken.
Thank you all very kindly for comments for the Black & White Hoverfly
on the Crocosmia Lucifer. Western Red did say images should make an IMPACT and I guess the black & white on red did that. Big thank you to
BobPaige1 for his very generous User Award.

This is a fine picture, Kate.
Colour for me.

have to say I like both Kate the Foie Gras and champagne went down well last night Tongue pity you did not get to the botanic gardens.

Contrast brings out the impact in this one. The landscape is softer than a lovely light on the lighthouse. So there are lots of ways to get impact. You will see your VS Mode rating is higher in this one proving my point. Well done Kate.

I wanted so much to go to the Glasgow botanic garden when I was there, but not enough time. I really hope to come back for a more leisurely visit.
Nice twilight colors.

The chequerboard pattern on the lighthouse is enough to make an impact in itself, particularly set against the softer landscape and sky. Very nice.

both work equally well. colour for the richness, mono for the drama

Colour version my preference, because of the lovely tones and patches of light on the hills.

Spot on composition Kate, and although I'm torn, I think I'll go for the mono version today with the lovely tones and textures. GrinGrinGrin

A lovely image it works well in both mono and colour

I think both work equally well, though I very much like the dramatic B&W sky.

It's v1 for me Kate, the colour adds to the mood in this case. As you know I'm not one for rules, so as this lighthouse is so strong it would sit well in the centre of the shot. Nicely done!

That sums it up for me, I must say I prefer the colour version though
