    Ach ja - ich bin seit vielen Jahren Van Morrison-Fan und habe eine große CD-Sammlung seiner Musik. Auch dieses hier...

    I remember this theme from some time ago, here in a classic black and white version and masterfully composed.Has got it all! I like the way the eye is led through the image into the depth.

    I, too, think the vignetting adds much to this lovely landscape. I like how it blends with clouds. I think the B&W works fine as it makes me yearn for yesterday (when all my troubles seemed so far away). I don't mind the absence of color, in fact I find it refreshing and it allows me to fill in my own...if I want to.

    das Vignetting transportiert gut die Erinnerung an den Sommer die Du ausdrücken willts

    Not to sure with this one, I agree colour or b/w is a matter of taste, but with your conversion you created a halo around the trees and the steeple. :-)
    and the water runs to the right.

      You've got a point with your remark about the halo's but the water running to the right is an optical illusion. When you draw a line from the top of the church-tower to the reflected top you'll see a perfect vertical line. Gr. Rob

    Wunderbare Bildkomposition, der Text von Van Morrison passt sehr gut zum s/w... Immer
    wenn Blätter fallen, umgibt auch mich ein Hauch Wehmut. Ich denke an den letzten Sommer, an liebe Menschen und weiß nicht, was kommen wird... Schöne Grüße Martha

    An autumn picture must be in color.
    How else can you see the autumn colors?
    Greetings Joachim

      There seems to be a never ending discussion about which photos should be in color or not and I think that doesn't matter at all. That's a matter of personal taste and has nothing to do with the techniques used to get this result

    • Eifelpixel 10/02/2017 6:03

      This is just my personal opinion. In a portrait the colors are not the decisive element, but an autumn picture lives of the colors
      Greeting Joachim

    Ist doch richtig klasse gemacht. Also Landschaft kannst du auch
    wunderbar lieber Rob. Sehe gerne mehr davon, wenn möglich.

    Mit lieben Grüßen ... Günter

    Du bist einfach ein Meister der s/w-Fotografie! Auch Deine gelegentlichen Landschafts-
    aufnahmen in s/w sind immer wieder schön anzusehen. Die Kontraste hast Du gut her-
    ausgearbeitet. Dieser wunderschöne Kirchturm ist schon ein Hingucker für sich. Zusam-
    men mit der schönen Landschaft, den beeindruckenden Wolken und der dezenten Spie-
    gelung bildet er eine sehenswerte Einheit.
    Wenn allerdings das LAUB in Kürze noch BUNTER wird, dann bevorzuge ich die Auf-
    nahmen in FARBE!

    Ein fantastisches Bild. Die Bildaufteilung ist genial. Die Darstellung in schwarz/weiss passt perfekt.
    Liebe Grüße

    Your excellent shot, Rob, confirms my long standing view that monochrome approach should be....compulsory to a good photographer! Colour shooting in landscape eliminates difficulties and facilitates the "mediocre relative" outcome that in most cases is also the pleasantly acceptable. A black and white will definitely puzzle for selecting correct exposure, will demand the acurate amount of contrast to exploit good detail in highlights and shadows and will also offer the special emotional all over effect in presence of an exceptional sky. All these are in perfect balance in your landscape.
    Van Morrison remains a good friend always...

      My so called "conversions" are not the usual and normal ones but made with special software which allows me to master every part. But we shouldn't forget that the base of this photo should be well exposed and focused where it should. I photograph in color but always with the final goal in my mind, a b/w photo. I think b/w while photographing and the question color or b/w isn't a real question because it's a matter of personal taste

    • alexander stefanatos 09/29/2017 19:52

      I agree that creating a b+w conversion from a colour original, my dear Mirjam, can often result to a much more acceptable print. But in genuine b+w photography ,especially in landscapes, creating a good print usually requires from start a real study of factors and not a simple pressure on the shutter.This is why proffessionals consider b+w photography a lot more sofisticated and difficult work than colour. But, anyway, for us, the modest amateurs either is the same, or is a matter of personal taste as well put it by Rob..

    • Mirjam Burer 09/29/2017 22:17

      of course no simple pressure on the shutter...I totally agree..and that is not what I said..and yes...it is a matter of personal taste...look at the great colour landscapes of Mark Billiau here on FC ...either one can be good..Have a wonderful weekend both... lg, Mirjam
    • alexander stefanatos 09/29/2017 23:22

      Initiating such arguments and discussions over photography matters,Mirjam, can be the wisest profit in our FC circle together with a solid and lasting friendship which is the most important of course.
