Day 34 - Blands Cliff

These murals are on a little troden alleyway about 100 yards from the sea front. My wife said the colour version was better, but she was wrong ;-)

@ditto44 @heidit @steampowered Thanks guys. Nic, I might shoot this again when the light is a bit better, and I'll post the colour then

Love this! Think it really works in B&W, but really interested to see how it looks in colour!

Composition is great. Love the contrast of the winding road to the busy murals.
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Can't say I have ever been here, you live and learn, love the light and shade.

This is awesome Rik. The leading lines are wonderful and a perfect balance to al the l murals. Fantastic job.

Love the lines and contrast. Great shot. And the black and white is awesome!

The murals may add interest, but even without them the curve of the lane as it climbs the hill makes a superb image. I like this b&w image.

Love the lines and the contrast. B&W gets my vote:-)

@gillg @mamamia @craftymeg @michellelittle @masosy @lkread @dave_rv @tracybeautychick Thank you all so much for your kind words. I think I'm going to shoot again at some point at sun set/rise to see if I can get the colours to do something. I'll probably end up processing it it b&w again, though :-)

The textures look great in black and white. I nearly always favour black and white over colour though.

Superb bw Fav! And follow if not only to keep up to date with you n your lady wife's 'battle' of colour v bw :)

@rachelwithey @alisonp Thanks guys. My wife now has this as the wallpaper on her iPad, so I think I may be winning the battle :-)

@alisonp Alison, I'm using a D3100, so I would think the D5100 will have something similar. It's in the Setup menu on my mine

Wow - that's stunning. I really want to see the color shot, too!

Great shot, I'm curious about the colored version
posted February 4th, 2013  
I agree - she is wrong. The busy shapes are perfectly relieved by the curvy path - so well composed. Love it. Nicely done.
