Thanks for the tour of Bergen. Turning this into monochrome really increases the impact of the image. The walkway not only makes a good leading line but adds some intrigue to the scene.

May I suggest that you finish removing the branches in the upper left corner.

I see you darkened the sky a bit, but I wonder if the two pools of water could be dimmed a bit as well. They seem unnaturally bright tome. But that is a maker's choice.   Posted: 06/04/2022 09:56:58

I agree with Larry's comments about the tree limbs and tonal value of the sky versus the water. Usually water is one stop darker than the sky so the bright water and dark sky seem incompatible to my eye. At least bringing them closer together would to my eye seem more natural. I like the way you incorporated the walkway, cropped in from the left and left room for the rock on the right. Nicely seen.   Posted: 06/04/2022 17:43:28

The super simple composition is a strong part of this image. In looking at your original image the water is darker than the sky however in the BW image it's lighter. Suggest reducing the brightness of the water. I like the image in BW and like the how the path leads you into the image. I also agree about the branches in the left upper corner. Well presented image.   Posted: 06/12/2022 13:14:56

I agree this is a very strong image, however I agree the water needs to be darker. Good composition!   Posted: 06/13/2022 17:56:56
