The Dark Loch...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...Lochan Dubh it's correct name and I thought I should post The Black Lochan as monochrome, it's all about the composition now without the colour.

I like the way you have converted this Dougie. If you don't mind sharing, which conversion method did you use?
30 Jul 2008 9:12AM
Fantastic mono, well done.
I use PS CS3 and channel mixer, hope it helps Penny.

and the interplay between light and shade.....

nicely done, though possibly a touch dark? Could just be my work monitor though. Wink

Staggeringly good composition, Dougie - not just the clouds and the reflections but the way the reflected clouds are continued by those little wispy bits of foliage in the very foreground.

Very close indeed with your bet on my photo: we had just walked up from the Grass Market onto the Royal Mile, on the corner of Upper Bow and Lawnmarket. I've just had to check the map Smile

Dark indeed! Just right for a B&W conversion, and the conversion is just right!
