photoblog image Beltway Walk II - B&W

Beltway Walk II - B&W

I posted thi image in colour yesterday and some of you suggested I try this in black and white so here's that version. I think this was a good idea. Which do you think is nicer? Today or yesterday's?

PP: Desaturation, Duplicate Layer for light diffusion and shadow extraction then set to 40% transparancy.

This one looks colder, but I like them both.

I think some of the detail has been lost in the change to b/w, for example in the snow and being able to see the catkins in the foreground.
this works very well in b&w.. congratulations!
Very smart picture, I like it !

I like both but this one has the edge for me.

NO IDEA how I MISSED this one...... but I absolutely love it! Its my favorite from your archive now smile One thing to capture in the winter is the barrenness, but then there's another to capture it all with a touch of humanity. That was badly worded... but this shot is beyond words, eh tongue
Iain Myrans: I'm really glad you like it smile I also know now that the black and white was a success -- Thanks for the comment, as always, Mia.
