Hi Les,
It seems like the horizon is pulling everything its way!
Beautiful scenery.

Hello Les, beautiful dramatic effect, the fg is 3 dimensional, coming right out of the screen!
Excellent DoF.
Love the b/w.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Les...nice black and white shot. Nice tonal range and light. Well done.


Hello Les

The clouds have made this image a winner. WoW. I like the result of the B/W effect on this one. Very surreal and soothing......great mood

Amazing sky. The pile of stones resembles the silhouette of a character.


Ola Les
Great b/W work.
the range of tones are so good.
Um abraço

Hi Les

You've done a nice job on this image. Sometimes I look at an image from Dartmoor and think "yeah, nice tree, nice rock" and that's it. But this black and white image is really nice. It's got good interest from foreground through to that stunning sky. Plenty of detail and tones. Maybe the rock and tree are a little central and the foreground a little too dominant but, obviously, that's how you wanted it

Hi Les,
The low angle and dramatic sky with a resulting powerful image. Well done.

Bom dia Les,
I want to give you welcome TL and tell you that in this picture you can see that you are not a beginner and therefore will bring us good lessons and beautiful presentations, including the stories that show.

  • Great

Bonsoir Les,

Interesting tones all over. Local contrast render nice sharp détails. I am always impressed by this Sigma lens, it has an impressive resolving power. PP treatment created a very dramatic sky that fits well with the landscape and the B&W approach. Nice work and TFS
