PLAY February - Fujinon 18mm f/2: Holly Path Lake

A view this afternoon of the Château de Brocéliande across L'Étang du Pas du Houx - the Holly Path Lake - with the ever present moor-hens in the mid-ground.

This is for my PLAY project - you can read more about it in my profile - where I'll be using a different prime lens for each month of the year: for February it's the Fujinon 18mm f/2 on an APS-C sensor camera (today the Fuji X-Pro1) - the equivalent of a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera.

This is also for Flash of Red 2017 and B&W 7

And I believe that this views better on black...
I like the range of textures -- especially that thin line of birds over the water.

We both took lake pic today though our lakes look quite different.

I really like the interest from the front of this shot to the back of it, as always beautiful b&w conversion.

Lovely shot of the lake.

Superb shot, great light - the foreground makes it for me

Great shot, natural framing and depth

Wonderful sky and reflections.

Very calming...and given that moorhens are shyish, this is ideal for them, far from the madding crowd.

Was the B & W done in camera or post-processing?

Beautiful silver tones, love the depth of field.

@princessm Hello Decima - Mostly I set my cameras to record Jpegs in B&W plus a colour Raw file. I like to use the sooc Jpeg whenever I can but this was taken only a half-hour before dusk on a very grey day so there was very little DR or contrast in the Jpeg - I wanted more punch so I converted the Raw file with Silver Efex Pro 2.

Lovely restful scene, Richard, very well processed. Interesting how you use RAW/JPGs. We each choose a method that feels comfortable for us. I keep my jpgs small and use them to move quickly between images, examining them on the laptop to decide whether to bother with the RAW file.
