I like this. A simple and quite graphic feel with the layers of tones and texture running through the horizontal.

It does look a little over sharpened with the water ripples speckling but doesn't detract from an appealing mono landscape. Strong composition.

Well that sorts that out then lol. Must be the way the light is reflecting off the movement in the water surface to create that speckled effect.

Yes, that's it Paul. There are two further uploads planned this week that would give a clearer impression of the lighting conditions.
Thanks for your comments.

The light has given lovely contours to the land creating some great contrasts
and therefore great for mono.

it is a world in its own right.. the water body itself is a world to explore.. very fine composition as usual.. interesting as well.. like earth, two third water, the rest land..
This is a wonderful monochrome landscape. Love the composition, and the range of tones.

Nice layered image with loads of interest! Love how the fence line hits against the water.

Excellent mono image Alan, like the barely visible reflection in the water that lead the eye to the other side and the hillSmile

Like a montage of two different shots, quite an extraordinary composition. Just as an alternative suggestion, crop off the top at the water edge, leaving the strong pale horizontal lines of light, and the result is also rather good.

A cracker, Alan. I like the varied textures on the water suggesting a mixture of wind and calm, shallow and deep water, even the passing of a water-skier where none has been. The line of the fence suggests a precipitous drop . . .

Your suggestion was actually the version I almost settled on, and I agree it looks good,
but subjectively it has a tension that doesn't really fit with my memory of things...
the version I ended up with feels truer, more resolved.

What a great mono, the tones give you such depth.

The highlight nestling in the V is perfect.

The alternate crop looks good to me, Alan. My memory is shot so I don't have to worry about unresolved issues. I like the mystery of the fence disappearing over the edge.

This makes me curious. What, outside the frame, has created these vertical reflections in the water which in turn create such a strong a connection with the smaller verticals of the fence? An image that works well on so many levels.

The name of the reservoir fascinates me.....I suppose it was once a pasture?
The vertical reflections are a puzzle, but they certainly add to the overall fine composition.

Just distorted cloud reflections.

I like all the different textures on the water. Would also like to see it in colour!!!

Great image Alan. I like the way the fence appears a third of the way across, the continued verticals with the reflections in the water and the strong horizontals above, definitely prefer it with the far bank land in.

A very well observed composition. Bracketing the light reflecting on the water between the two narrow strips of land top and bottom makes a very effective graphic image.
