Fluffy white things in the sky, and fluffy white things in the field

I like it, it has a surreal feeling (maybe because the lightened background)

There's something strange going on with the sheep - they seem to have some sort of dark halo around them. Not sure what's happened there.

Did you use a lot of "local contrast enhancement" or "clarity" to boost the pop in the shot? That can cause effects like this.
But I still like it a lot, very vibrant B&W!

Something a little softer from me:

Clouds and moon

Yes, I think I've overcooked it with the local contrast.

Nice clouds & moon BTW

I like the picture--nice connection between the fluffy sheep and the fluffy clouds. I do think the "hi-contrast red filter"  effect is a bit extreme.

I've made some adjustments, and lost the strange dark halo effect around the sheep. BTW, no red filter, it was green, but I did use a polariser. Here's the re-jigged version, and another from yesterday evening. I've also left in the previously cloned out barn. Not sure it made much difference to be honest.

Much better on the ground but I rather liked the high contrast drama in the clouds of the first, some of which you've lost in the reworking. I agree about the barn.

OK, so there's a prominent tree, but there's clouds as well

I like it. The tree seems to be simulating a lightning strike from those clouds.

The Temperance Hotel, Land's End, Cornwall, with some (IMHO) wonderful clouds framing it. YMMV

I don't see why it should. Great clouds!

Bill,

The Temperance Hotel is a great image. You ought to have posted it in a separate thread.

Hi,

Clouds over the big plains in northern Mexico shot with the new Canon EF 11-24mm through the bus window @18mm focal length

Look at the grey bar on the lower part and there you can see the good correction of this lens. Original image size.
