Default Colour Blind with no people in sight..LOL!

As I feel a bit of a fraud now, thought I would throw this one in to make up for it. Thought this definitely looks better in B & W. Adjusted levels in colour version, conv. to greyscale and levelled again.

Good job, Freefly! Great contrast augmenting fine composition. All is forgiven. The way those clouds sharply recede into the distance shows up so much better in b&w, don't you think?

Couldnīt agree more, thatīs why I love Black and White. Sometimes without the confusion of colours, aspects of the image you wouldnīt normally "See", really stand out.

Default B&W landscape

I could look at this image forever and never grow tired of it. I just love this type of work.

Well done,

I think you nailed the essence of black and white there, Freefly.

Beautiful photograph. I like the way the larger mass of stones on the left balances the cloud mass on the right.

Thanks everyone..Amazing place called Jimenez de la Frontera in Southern Spain. Small village with a large hill next to it with castle ruins on top from the Moorish days I think. Very photogenic place.
