  1. I really like the black and white! I think the "nude" is even more dominant here than with color. Very nice photo in both...

  5. As for both the color and the monochrome works, a lonely tree and a small house are emphasized, and it is totally a work such as the picture. I cannot think it to be the photograph. In the monochromatic one, a flowing cloud seems to become clear.

  6. I like this one the best. I'm going to ask a stupid question...but the title of the post? I don't get it

  7. That is absolutely gorgeous! Kind of charcoaled painting. Perfect for framing.

  8. I like both, but I think the B&W evokes a mood! (Maybe because it is raining this morning... that's already the mood!)

  9. What's the little building, it looks like one of the Civil War battlefield farmhouses that get preserved.

  10. Not only nude.. also impressive, strong,inspiring! It seems to be a shadow in the night, with the light of the moon. What a mood!

  19. James my friend!!
    I just LOVE your shot and your title of it.
    It's like poetry for the soul and I agree with Carver. It would look good framed and hung on the wall!

  22. Beautiful! Amazing shot, amazing three and just perfect contrasts and simplicity for monochrome.

  23. This is really incredible! Hard to believe it could look this good in macro- What a neat shot with the cloud formation and the barreness of that tree with a slight shadow and small cabin? Fantasic-

  24. Black and White -- yes! The color version of Nude is OK. The Black and White version is special. Nice work.

  25. Beautiful! I love bare trees, and you've caught such a dramatic sky.

  26. James - Posting both a color and a b/w sure makes it tough. I think I, too, like the monochrome. (Both both are very cool.) Everyone likes the setting and it is very historic and dramatic. I think I mentioned a while back that my family lived just at the edge of the battlefield where Mingo Creek enters the Schuylkill River..its east of Royersford. They lived there from about 1729 until the 1790s, then left after the war for western NY state (Lansing). This area is still so beautiful and the battlefield is amazing. Great shot!!

  29. B & W is more effective, you see all the skeleton of the poor tree. I had a few photos like this too, but your branches are so fine.
