Llanddwyn... again

I guess this should really go in as a version, but it's a bit late now so thought I'd upload as a new image...

I've been meaning to get back to mono for some time now but keep getting caught up in 'pretty colours' so this is a bit of an experiment for me.

I know that B&W tends not to go down very well on the site, but I like it!

Thanks for looking, C&C welcome...

A cracking image Chris, would liked to have seen a bit more drama in sky with a bit of burning in. The sky in the colour version showed potential but seems to have lost it a bit in the conversion.

Thanks all...

Agree about the sky Chris - unfortunately my system crashed at that stage and PS refuses to work now! Hope to get things working again soon so I might be able to work it further Smile

call me controversial but i'm prefering the colour version. Maybe with some work on the sky with a touch more contrast and maybe add some grain?

Well composed - a nice image. Agree with earlier comment that the sky needs more contrast and I think this is not far off a great mono conversion.

I prefer this to the colour version. I think the subject lends itself well to black and white

Nice and moody Chris, mono works really well with this shot. Tony

Hi all,

many thanks for the comments. Have been without a laptop for a few days thanks to a dodgy graphics card, but back up & running now!

Agree that this needs more contrast so have re-worked & added as a version. Hope this is better!

Thanks again for the feedback, really useful Smile

The new version looks much better however any chance of making the house stand out a bit more

a well thought out composition, and it works very well IMO...who cares if black and whites aren't as popular...this one should be!

Thanks Phil!

Have dodged a bit more around the house / lighthouse & I think it does make a difference, so cheers for that Nick!

Version 2 for me , I love that sky . Every picture tells a story and this one says if you don't be carefull round the rocks with your boat you will end up with a cross . Good composition and good rendering of that sky . xx
