Yesterday, stroll through a small path in the forest ..
and I wondered how would look fall without all these beautiful colors .. So I opted for a black and white .. This gives a more dramatic effect.
What do you think?

Ciao Robert, original idea to show us fantastic autumnal colors in a B&W version:), great perspective, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

B/W version engages the viewer to finish and add color in mind .creative idea.

Hi Rob.

We can tell this scene has many colours, but it still becomes an impressive view as a b/w version. The mix of tones combined with the track leading off into the distance via a huge dip, has great qualities. I think too often we assume colour but should step back a moment now and again and consider b/w, neat job. tfs

stv ;o))

Although in B&W it depicts Autumn, dear Robert.
A very interesting composition from an agreeable POV. I like the depth in the perspective, very well demonstrated.
Well done,

Well suited title to a well executed shot, Robert!
Great focus and nice contrasts within the scene.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and B/W tones give the picture an exceptional look.
Well done!

Hello Robert,

It's a fabulous presentation in monochrome. Long way through a decline is looking interesting. Fallen leaves on the side is adding charm. A beautiful image, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Bonsoir Robert,

J'aime en général le noir et blanc, sa crée une atmosphere bien spécifique.
On peut l'utiliser aussi quand le ciel est gris, particulièrement en Belgique. Ici, c'est une idée partagée.
Je te souhaite une agréable semaine et merçi pour le partage.

Excellent pov for this shot which is enhanced by your choice of B&W. It looks a really steep hill. Well done

Bonsoir Robert,
Belle perpective de la route et présentation de cette route en N & B,
Beau contraste et lumière sans 'Over Exposed'
Une photo d'automne bien composée ,
bien vue..

an artistic invitation by vanishing points
what a distinguish details... looks like a hand paint art work
well done ROBERT LABBE.

Hello Robert
I love this photo..despite it being in black and white, you can "see" the many different color shades of the trees. And that road climbing towards the sky adds to the magic of the picture. Great shot!
