Memories in Monochrome 2...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...with a twist of Sepia to help it along. Loch Earn a while back. It was a dark and moody day, cold breeze blowing down the loch.

Julian may be right about the tones, but I can't remember how I did this, an attempt at lighter tones and the colour has shifted to red a bit too much possibly.
certainly can see the land behind the trees.

Up large we can see all the detail in the shadowed hill in the distance.
Beautifully composed, beautiful content, and the sort of image mono is made for.

Nearly every time I have passed along Loch Earn, Dougie, the light has been reduced from overcast conditions: you have made good use of the prevailing weather here, it lending itself very successfully to this monochrome presentation.

I like the toning, it's cold and bleak, suitable for the time of year.

Fine work Dougie. I like the way that the trees appear to be bending with the wind. Really suits Mono too.

Think you need a bit more tonal separation here, Doug. Esp. where the tree-trunks cut across the BG. Nice, though.

The added tone works well Dougie

I've attempted to separate the tones as suggested by Julian, kept the top of the tree in as well as a bonus.

Toning works well with this Dougie.
