This is the high structure conversion.
there's a lot of water passing under that bridge.
and jack, it's a beautiful photo, especially with the sky
almost a complete blank.

p.s. i think the black and white is more dramatic than the color version.
28 Dec 2009 6:00am
I think i prefer the one in color. The tree was magnificent
28 Dec 2009 6:16am
It's also as good version in b/w... I don't know which one I prefer :)
28 Dec 2009 6:26am
great and terrefic shot, Jack
28 Dec 2009 6:35am
Great shot Jack - i think i prefer this one
28 Dec 2009 7:15am
excellent bw version
28 Dec 2009 7:26am
The ocre color of yesterday photo its a plus for the eyes
28 Dec 2009 8:08am
So far, I prefer the original. The tree worked in the composition when it was in colour, brought a bit of life to the shot. This seems a bit... industrial :)
28 Dec 2009 8:29am
Without hesitation... I prefer the mono version.
28 Dec 2009 8:56am
AWESOME - love the tones - wonderful image john4jack!
28 Dec 2009 10:08am
I prefer the color version with the palette of blues of the sky and the water and the lovely contrasting yellow of the tree.
28 Dec 2009 10:47am
As the tones in water, I prefer this one. But I like yellow leaves in the color version. I look forward the next.
28 Dec 2009 11:16am
Very nice in b&w
28 Dec 2009 11:23am
Although I love the play of light and shadows and it makes an extraordinary black and white, now that I've seen that golden tree, I have to stick with the colour...;)
28 Dec 2009 11:52am
A very beautiful photo ,great light and composition !
superbe ce noir et blanc !
28 Dec 2009 11:57am
I prefer this version ! great BW and framing !
28 Dec 2009 12:29pm
I know that golden tree played on our visual senses but I like the B&W version for how it can add a dramatic impression. I see things in the B&W I don't see in the color version.
I can appreciate you giving us an alternative vision of the same image.

Still lovely ,b&w..gives it a new look....
28 Dec 2009 4:28pm
@StarCosmosBleu: Thank you for this and all of your recent comments.
I like the color one better, too, especially for the tree.
28 Dec 2009 4:49pm
wonderful and I hope not surprising if I say that this monochrome I love much more than color version .
28 Dec 2009 5:08pm
@MARIANA: Na-a-ah! Really?? :))
I prefer the latter version is more powerful! Greetings Jack!
28 Dec 2009 5:31pm
This is nice. It seems to increase the detail in the water and lose it in the sky.
28 Dec 2009 5:32pm
REALLY !!! It is a brilliant BW . There is only one thing I would change in this shot if this shot is mine :)))
28 Dec 2009 5:49pm
@MARIANA: I was kidding; I knew that you would prefer B&W :)) If you had preferred color that would really have thrown me for a loop!
The black and white image works out very well too. I like the stark quality of the tones. Fine image.
28 Dec 2009 5:51pm
The b+w has nice tones. Maybe tomorrow will be a layered shot. I like doing that. B+w on colour then blend them.
28 Dec 2009 5:56pm
Gran perpectiva y encuadre, buen b/w
28 Dec 2009 5:58pm
Mono is my first love, Jack, and this version really floats my boat. Love it
28 Dec 2009 6:23pm
Las dos trasmiten mucho, pero me quedo con la anterior ya que el color ocre del árbol es impresionante,
Buen trabajo maestro!!!
28 Dec 2009 6:27pm
I love this perspective where the bridge does a great job of leading your eyes from the tree toward the skyline in the background. Nice detail on the water's surface can be seen in this B&W.
28 Dec 2009 6:30pm
Even better in B&W - aluminium-like*
28 Dec 2009 6:31pm
excellent contrasts and conversion to b/w -- hmm... what will the third version be?? :)
28 Dec 2009 7:11pm
@dj.tigersprout: Many thanks, dj, for this and all of your recent comments.
Amazing how a B&W gets an image down to the 'bare bones' elements. I do prefer this one, although both are great images. The bridge line seems more pronounced whereas the yellow tree is the first thing to grab your attention in the previous one. Nicely done.
28 Dec 2009 7:13pm
@Barbara Kile: Thanks. You nailed it pretty well.
28 Dec 2009 7:30pm
Nice B&W. I like the strong one point perspective.
28 Dec 2009 7:36pm
Great in B&W too! The bridge becomes much more prominent in this one!
28 Dec 2009 8:12pm
@Tracy: Thanks. Yeah, that High Structure in Silver Efex makes it pop. Clear for me, the bridge is the dominant subject.
black and white LED definitely a plus, especially in the athmosphere!
28 Dec 2009 9:47pm
The conversion is a good one, but so far, I vote for the color! :D
28 Dec 2009 10:51pm
That light and color on yesterday's tree makes that one definitely my fave!11
28 Dec 2009 11:23pm
The tree looks almost snowed on! Neat.
28 Dec 2009 11:57pm
The only problem with Silver Efex is... sometimes it gives so many beautiful options it becomes very difficult to choose the right one. But I have generally seen High Structure works quite well in many cases.
29 Dec 2009 12:52am
@Ajay: There are 3 or 4 presets that I use as a starting point. I often use different film types. I rarely use control points.
Wow, just as captivating in b&w. Such a strong composition and I seem to be more focused on the bridge in this one b/c I am not looking at the bright gold of the tree. Excellent!
29 Dec 2009 3:28am
Both are beautiful...I think I prefer the color version
29 Dec 2009 4:21am
The light comes through much more strongly in this version - love it!
29 Dec 2009 6:31pm
@dabbler: I love the High Key version, but this is the one that I would put on the wall :))
This B&W version is perfect and more in harmony.... better version for me.
