In converting yesterday's shot to B&W, I cropped out most of the monochrome blah sky. Although I have more photographs from our survival adventure, tomorrow it really is on to the flowers.
Nikon D700 1/400 second F/10.0 ISO 200 85 mm (35mm equiv.)
I am one fan of the nb and this one is very beautiful

Très belle image NB!!!

Wonderfully simplified to the essence of the harbor scene in black and white. Very appealing !!
12 Jul 2010 6:28am
Oh yes! The B&W is just as nice. I love the mood here and the detail is amazing. Very well done!
12 Jul 2010 6:54am
this is really beautiful You have a lovely depth in the B&W tones
12 Jul 2010 7:20am
Très joli, bravo!

@Manu: Merci. I am having trouble making comments on your photographs on your site.
I prefer it in B&W

A complimentary image

You can choose? I choose the W / B friend Jack! It is a magnificent photo in monochrome! Thank you very much for showing your experiments! Muchos besos amigo Jack!

Hi Jack - Yes I tend to agree with a lot of folks here - the depth and essence seems to really come out a bit more The definition of the various boats coupled with the harbor seems to stand out more - I also see what you mean about the sky. Although I really did not notice it as being a negative factor the other day, it does seem to all work here - you put so much thought and feeling into your work anyway I love it all...being a Jazz and Blues fan I will just say that it's all about the soul - and you got it sir. VERY nice piece here Jack :-)

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Denny. In the color version, there is enough blue (along with the fog) in the sky to make it worth including more sky. In the monochrome, it all goes to white.
12 Jul 2010 11:46am
Wonderful detail and tonal range Jack!
12 Jul 2010 11:55am
This is beautiful! What a fantastic view and compo
12 Jul 2010 12:26pm
Je préfère en couleur !... ))))
12 Jul 2010 12:45pm
I love fog . Great BW !
12 Jul 2010 12:50pm
I like both but I do think the black and white works well bringing out the atmosphere and mood in the fog.
12 Jul 2010 1:54pm
I like the fog in the foreground. Excellent choice of black and white.
12 Jul 2010 2:44pm
Yesterday's image was beautiful, but the image in B&W is amazing! I love the boats in the fog!
12 Jul 2010 3:13pm
color versions are pretty, but I prefer this version black and white, for the atmosphere that it clears up!
12 Jul 2010 3:22pm
Boy, Jack. I love both shots. Different moods seem to prevail with each.
12 Jul 2010 3:25pm
This shot really highlights your perfect composition and the wonderful detail in the boats and the light they catch in the foggy air. It's beautiful. The color image is wonderful because of the colors being so special, and the fog being more visible and having a greater effect in the image. Interesting to compare. I vote for color (perhaps only because you lose the fog here) but they're both beautiful!

@Bettina: I tend to agree with you. I looked back through all of my shots, and I took a ton of them, and none of them would give definition to the fog in monochrome. Only the fog coming across the bridge gives you any indication that there is fog.
I'm in the other camp here, Jack. Mono is my first love and the detail and character that is released from the conversion absolutely bowls me over. The boats come to life without the distraction of the colours, and the entire scene takes on a greater depth and beauty. I love this version. The beauty of photography is in the eye of both the photographer himself/herself and also the viewer, isn't it. A marvellous photograph.

@SOUL AFLAME: Most seem to prefer the B&W version.
I love it in b/w gets lots of details
12 Jul 2010 4:25pm
Nice and sharp foreground on the blurry background...beautiful BW photo!
12 Jul 2010 5:14pm
Hi. Well I don't see much fog in the foreground. The boats have caught the patch of light through the fog and clouds. I think it is very interesting how the conversion from colour makes it look like a chilly day because of the foreground and does accentuate the fog over the bridge, having cropped the sky. I like the BnW
12 Jul 2010 6:13pm
I prefer the color version because we can better see the fog arriving on the bridge. But in B&W there is a lot details on the boats.
12 Jul 2010 6:22pm
@Evelyne Dubos: You hit the nail on the head.
Absolutely lovely monochrome, I love how the mist is enveloping the bridge, superb.
12 Jul 2010 6:31pm
Black and white works so well with this shot brings out more detail and a cool mood t this shot
12 Jul 2010 6:47pm
Lovely view on the boats and bridge, like both shots of it:-)
12 Jul 2010 7:04pm
The b&w is great but i really loved yesterday's colour shot so much. Although the magical mist rising over the bridge is still fantastic.
12 Jul 2010 8:25pm
a fantastic capture
12 Jul 2010 9:13pm
12 Jul 2010 9:48pm
I love both versions.
12 Jul 2010 10:02pm
I love this version even more--there is a dignity that black and white brings!
12 Jul 2010 10:44pm
Well, i'm in the color camp......just something about the color of the water in yesterday's that did it for me!!!
12 Jul 2010 11:19pm
Amazing combination of the calmness of the water, stillness of the boats and a foggy bridge. Black and white makes things so clear, for sure.
13 Jul 2010 1:00am
Nice contrasts in this B&W processing. And I love the subtle "reveal" of the bridge through the fog.
13 Jul 2010 1:40am
oh I really love this in black and white, but then you likely remember how much I love black and white :)
13 Jul 2010 3:39pm
Also nice n b&w..but i prefer the color version..just a question of personal taste....lovely work
