About the Image(s)

This image was taken at the same location on the same misty morning as my lagoon image from August. This is just one part of the walking trails that I love to wander along. I always enjoy black and white images as much as coloured, so I have included one and called it the original, just for posting in this group. I'm not asking which one is better, but would just like to hear thoughts regarding the two. Maybe the likes of your Ansel Adams and our David Moore are trying to reach out to some of us in our digital age. Now there's a thought, what sort of images would Ansel produce if he got his hands onto one of our digital cameras?

Nikon D2x; Nikon 16-80 @ 50mm; ISO 100; F 3.5; 1/30 & monopod mounted.

I am amazed at the detail you achieved in those trees. I love wandering up and down paths like these. When living in Maryland we had what was called Trolley Trails (old trolley paths that were designated as Green Space and made into walking trails) . There is nothing more peaceful to me than seeing that trail going out into "infinity". I like the perspective you used with that path drawing my eye into the image.

I also like the B&W and can't decide which I like best!   Posted: 09/12/2023 10:07:36

Thanks for your comments Sherry, I do enjoy my days wandering around these paths. I don't usually take a camera, but this day I did as I wanted to photograph that misty lagoon I posted last month. Both images were taken the same day, although the fog had burnt off by the time I took this one.   Posted: 09/24/2023 07:29:58

My preference really is for color over BnW. Both are beautifully done though, and the if there was mist it would simply be a different image. One for the future perhaps?   Posted: 09/24/2023 10:14:40
