Cloudbank~2

I am grateful for the positive comments that the colour version of this shot received on Friday. But I have to tell you that I prefer this one!
Tough call, the contrast here is indeed nicer!

Great layers, a lovely composition and capture

Wonderful

It becomes a bit more abstract like this, with much more emphasis on the compositional elements. I love them both.

I like this one better. I like that I can see more variation in each of the layers.

So I sit here and look and ponder as what it is that makes this so effective, other than the obvious range of tones and contrast...because there is more here. And then I see all those parallel lines in the water, with their contrast, balanced by the lines in the sky, but then there is still more. So I walk away, and that's when I see it....it's the lower left darkness forming that diagonal and the diagonal of the water all met by the dark triangle coming in from the right...that and that each horizonal third of the frame would be an impressive image in its own right. I really like how you get me thinking....

@granagringa Thanks Madeline... that's an impressive analysis.. doubt if I could have written it but yes,, you have seen it as I saw it but I had taken the shot almost at the instant of seeing it, so no time for thought and reflection until I began processing.

@helenhall @joysabin Thank you both.. between you you have explained why I prefer b&w ... strip away the colour and what lies behind it is revealed ... and that, for me, is the important bit

@yrhenwr I've heard that referred to as "unconcious competence"...and it's so much easier to "analyse" the work of others!

very cool. I always thought that you could walk on clouds and eat them too...

That's beautiful - I prefer this one too!

You are allowed!

The b&w brings out the lovely tonal range and adds an abstract quality to the image that I find appealing (surprise, surprise!)
