Behaving themselves and keeping to heel, Cole... Alternatively they're over the hills and far away investigating the hedgerows... Take your pick! Wink

I love the original - a very well composed and captured image. But there is no doubt the mono version creates an even more dramatic image with a good range of contrast and tones. Lovely bit of work, Kathy.


Lovely well composed image Kathy - love the mono conversion

Do the clouds fit the picture?

Lovely shot - the sky has a real impact.

7 Aug 2010 - 2:52 PM

Cracking images, the B&W really jumps out of the page, but love them both.

?????? I presume they do as this isn't cropped at all, I didn't even straighten the horizon!!! Same clouds as in "Dog" (yes, dogs were present Smile )and "John Deere"...

Excellent mono Kathy, deserving of that award ! Ron.

Oh those clouds, that big Norfolk sky. Gorgeous. The barley up here in NE Scotland (not much wheat) still has green in it so no harvest yet. Anything special in the processing or just desaturation & curves?

Cracking mono Kathy!
