« on: June 26, 2019, 06:33:35 am »

Thanks  to the "regulars" for all the comments on my other submissions! I really appreciate them.

I am keen to see what you think of this one...

Thanks

William

Stunning image!

Wonderful interplay of light and shadow with sumptuous detail in all the right places...
I have no idea what the colour version looks like but this B&W just nails all the boxes!

I really miss vistas like these and cannot wait to get back to Africa (South) to drink it all in again!

To clarify: I get the impression that this rendition lacks layering for some sense of depth. I don't get the impression that this image is about the graphics, so the question arises what the high contrast is supposed to convey? If it is merely about a faithful reproduction of a sunlit scene, then one naturally wonders what the color version looks like.

I see where Oscar is coming from, but I disagree. I think it's all about graphics, and very well done.

Good "light geometry" with the various light wedges and diagonal lines.

I like it a lot. I might burn in the centre bright area just a tad.

Colour version is fine but the B&W wins hands down!
And, so does your original judgement to make a B&W version...

Your B&W is so much more powerful, than the color...Great job.
