I like your conversion to B/W because this helps the viewer to connect directly with the shapes, texture, scale of the elements in the image as well as the person. The viewer is not then distracted by the beautiful turquoise color. Hope you don't mind but I liked your image enough to bring it into PS RAW and then into Silver Efex to render a different interpretation of your image...a cooler tone. For the image I uploaded I chose Street-Hint of Blue in Silver Efex though I did play around with Classic Portrait-Cool Tone...nice also...a very nice b/w image Sanford.   Posted: 09/09/2021 19:13:42

The appearance of a human element allows us to give a scale to this image and in addition it represents a point of balance. It's a nice touch.
I also like to work in black and white because even though I am a colorist at heart, my best successes in international competitions are in monochrome. In short, everyone has his own perception of the image, but after the work sylver pro effect, I would have perhaps ironed a pro'contrast to densify and give more relief. But I didn't try.
The author chose to show us the image like this, I will not try to dissuade him because it is well like that.
That said, and the blue of the glacier ??? There is no way in color to make it stand out? We always look for what we don't have in front of us. Let's enjoy the picture and especially thank you for this image.   Posted: 09/09/2021 23:46:37

I like the photo both in black and white, and in color. The black and white shows off the different tones of the glacier and makes the overall image more interesting. Nice work.   Posted: 09/14/2021 20:16:34

What a wonderful image to play around with! The choice of b&w emphasizes textures and there is ample in that glacier and rocky foreground. For me, the story appears to be the photographer and his opportunity. I would have moved slightly to the left so that he is just below that dark alcove to his right and that would place him in line with a circular movement from the dark line of the glacier, to the ice coming out from glacier at right to shore, then left to the rocks pointing back to the glacier. There is nice DOF in this with use of the mountain behind the glacier.   Posted: 09/18/2021 09:19:58

This is a great image Sanford and I love it just the way you have chosen to present it to us. You have presented an image with great depth, story and sense of place. It's always rewarding to go on a trip like this and come back with good results. Well done and congratulations.   Posted: 09/19/2021 02:49:16
