About the Image(s)

I participated in a photography workshop at Acadia National Park in 2019. At this location there was a long sandy beach but this view of the rocky shoreline with the evergreen tree in the foreground captured my attention. Black and white was a natural choice with the dramatic sky and textured rocks.
Technical: 1/125 sec, f/10, ISO200, 44mm

I have preferred color until I saw Ansel Adams's photos at an exhibition in a museum. I like this because it reminds me of his type of landscape/nature photos. Nicely done.   Posted: 02/01/2021 19:38:21

This is the case of the lonesome pine or something else. Whatever, this works well in mono and the detail in the rocks and sky are great. It's always difficult to get the perfect angle sometimes and I think here that the merger of the lower branches of the tree with the background forest and bank take away something of the impact of this image.   Posted: 02/06/2021 06:48:04

I think there are NO bad images from Acadia. I have several dozen that I have processed and entered in various competitions and all did well. Monochrome was a wise decision as it does bring out the features in the clouds and rocks. I'm sure the color version doesn't have the pop here. I agree with Peter on the merger of the branches and the trees in the background. A minor issue - I just enjoyed looking over another photographer's view of Acadia.   Posted: 02/06/2021 16:00:43

A photogenic coastline that looks great in mono, then you get those stormy clouds to finish it off. I am with the others over the branches of the tree, but sometimes we cannot get a perfect position from which to shoot.   Posted: 02/13/2021 05:25:14
