Those patterns again

By marktc  
Here we go again... a mono conversion of an earlier upload, I've tried to show the contrast in the patterns and in the sea, but suspect a few will mention the lack of contrast in the sky... Oh well can't win them all.

Thanks to everyone who clicked and commented on yesterdays upload, I din't think it would be as well received.

Have a good week all.

You've got some nice, rich mono tonalities here, Mark.

Compositionally excellent, textures are spot on, I love the square format (just like a nice, big 6x6 negative), maybe just a tad brighter (could be my monitor though).

Basically excellent, I love it. One small thing, I think the stone should have been on the right and a little lower in the frame but thats just nit picking really.

In mono this is all about texture and pattern so you could almost crop out all the sky as a variation, Mark.

This suits b/w so well. I love the openness and feeling of freedom.

The mono conversion enhances the patterns in the sand.
Cropping the sky would work as a change but if it's for own pleasure
whatever you feel is right.

I think the mono brings out the texture in the sand really well - I loved the original with that lovely warm light too so difficult for me to choose between them.

Nature's designs on that sand show very well on mono for sure... Once again a very eye pleasing image... Grin IB
