Chesterton II

By KKmoments
Firstly thank you for the wonderful response on yesterdays windmill I was 'shocked' at the response.... i thought i would upload the colour version today and many thanks to Stew's (BFGStews) comments thought i would omit the writing.... i'd be interested to see if you prefer colour/mono it could influence my future landscape attempts... i do have a preference which i won't divulge lol....

Thanks again and all C&C welcomed.

The mono was amazing, Karen, but the colour version has the edge for me.

I am a fan of color, but either works here for me, a wonderful mill

The mono certainly has more punch. This needs a little more contrast and sharpening to really make it pop. Just my opinion.

As good as this is Karen I agree with Grainge I go mono - yesterdays was a superb atmospheric piece of work and the subject was well suited to it.

The same image Karen, but completely different, if you know what I mean ???
I usually go for colour over b&w, but this time I go with the mono version.
This is very, very good, but I think that the gold is just a bit too bright for that amazing sky.

The same as most folk I go for the Mono.
I don't know what time this was shot but I tend to steer clear of "daytime" shots as they are usually flat and lack any drama.
The mono gives this drama.
That said the comp is spot on and the traol in the cereals breaks up the left side well.

Both good, but I prefer the more dramatic look of the mono version.

Both are great images, but for me, it's the colour version.

Normally I am going for the coloured versions Karen, but your b/w windmill is simply outstanding. This is beautiful, too, but ...
I suppose I know your preference.

An excellent image Karen, both are tremndous. The mono version has the slight edge as it is so powerful and dramatic

Ooh,Karen that sky just is so dramatic and the windmill has amazing dof,great timing and motion and the detail is class.Both shots are beautiful and i like both but the colour one just has the edge for me,it's that sky that does it for me and the way the perspective seems to change and the windmill seems closer.Great texture on the architecture.take care,AnnSmile
