Awesome photo. The B&W conversion is superb.

Too much sky in my opinion for a good composition, but lovely image in any case.


This is such a gorgeous shot Maciej. I would be VERY proud to have taken this. Fantastic BW tones, lighting, placement, and just overall composition. 5 Stars.



Fantastic use of black and white.

This works very well with me -- natural leading lines of the foreground element, the creamy waters and patterns in the sky. Mono treatment is spot on!

My comments (just a wish, a personal taste), which can easily be corrected in PP:
1. I see halos on the edges of the tree trunks. This could be avoided by masking those portions in the sharpened layer
2. A little more dodging on some dark parts of the tree trunk. Perhaps, show more details, if possible
3. More contrast on the sky to highlight the interesting patterns there.
