I really like the black and white. I like that it has a more define horizon then the color one. Which gives it a nice point of reference to where the ski ends and the lake begins. The purple tone of the rock does not appeal to me as much to the grays of the BW shot.

No, sorry I have a difference of opinion. I think the color version is better then the B&W version. Look at the rocks on the right side near the water. They have a nice glow to them in the color version. In the B&W version the glow is lost. I mean both versions are nice, but the color one has that magic element to it....

thank you guys. it just goes to show that we all have a little different tastes, and glad each has some own merits for different people.

i think the black and white image would have worked better had i got there about 20 minutes earlier. at the time these were taken though, the color (or colour) image probably works a little better for me too.

Cool shot, B&W, never seen Lake Erie look so peaceful.

The colo(u)r version doesn't work for me.
I like b&w, but i will object your selection of proportions on it (which you changed in the color version). You went square framing, which feels boring to me because it adds a second order of simmetry.
I'm not at all a partisan of the rule of thirds, but i guess it works better here:

Hawgwild thank you for the kind words.

Ordo, appreciate the constructive feedback. I had originally included a little more sky because i liked the depth afforded by the streak of lighter sky in the clouds. but seeing your rendition retains the depth, but places more emphassis on the vanish perspective.

Hards80,

Oh, Lake Erie; sounds like poetry; and poetic might be the word to describe these pictures. Beautiful
