Otter Lake


Color version of the trees and water picture from below, I still think the B&W looks better. Dunno why.

This one has a more naturalised feel while the B&W version has sinister connotations of misgivings about to come from behind these branches. "Deliverance" in B&W

ndiginiz, I'm just the opposite. The color version is too mundane for my taste. I much prefer the monochrome version. The monochrome has a delicacy that I just don't get in the color version. But, as the French say, "a chacun, son gout" (literally, "there is suspicious activity in my pants.")

Thanks for posting the colour version!
I think it looks a bit friendlier but also a little sloppy (hope that's the right word for what I want to say, english is not my mother tongue:-)).
Don't know which one I like more. They are both beautiful.

Whoa! David! This is awesome.
I haven't been out in awhile to see your stuff. I prefer the color version, perhaps because the almost bichromatic scene (if there's a monochromatic, there must be a bichromatic, right?) feels just a little livelier to me.

And we all have down time. Take heart!

The b&w is better imho. The light color of the leaves in the colored version distract me from focusing on the background. Mabey it has something to do with seeing one version first & then the other? I don't know. Both are great, but I prefer the b&w.

Re: norwod matt: My friend you have a sublime taste of the "I don't know whats" ;)
I meant "a naturalise feel" not as a preference for any particular version. But in terms of an interpretation of the image relative to the previous. But now in choosing I would choose...This version :)
Hey DJohns sorry for jacking your pop-up man :(
May the fleas of a thousand camels infest my armpits if I do this again!

I think Patty's on to something. The background is beautiful in the colour version, and the branches give an interesting "lacy" overlay, but the green of the leaves is distracting.

I love the blues and browns in this picture. I think it would be a great colour scheme for decorating a room. :P
