Something very new for me: a B&W landscape. I prefer this version to the original coloured picture (see Workshop). It was a quite funny thing for me to enhance the dramatic way of this cloudy sky.
Hope you like it!

Very good composition! The sky is great. Beautiful and dramatic b&W image.

Hi Emmanuel,
I fully agree with you, the B&W version is much better looking than the color version. The drama in the sky comes out better. This is absolutely a wonderful photo with a stunning sky and a great low POV. Great work on the composition and clarity. I migh have toned down the really bright part in the cloud.

Hello Emmanuel,
the subject and landscape are perfectly suitable for Black and white photography. I really like good B&W images. The menhir is well displayed just out of the centre of the image. I just wonder if the large contrast in the clouds on the right side of the picture don't distract too much. For some reason (I am defenitly no expert in landscape photography) I have this less in the colour picture.
Compliments for the composition and pp
Regards, Jacob

first of all: you shot is great. colour or b&w is the same thing.
please, how do you transform it in BW (can you be precise?)
I like digital BW.

ciao, mario

Hi Emmanuael,
a very powerful image with a dramatic sky..personally i really like the colour version, but i can see why you've converted it to b & w, as the stone gets a bit lost in the grass....i have a few shots of neolithic monoliths but i haven't posted them on TN as i assumed they were against the T.O.S, being man made..
great shot, very dramatic indeed!

Bonjour Emmanuel,
Superbly composed B&W landscape picture.
Very nice angle.
Excellent shot.

Hi Emmanuel

A magnificent post, indeed!
The polarizer made a bliss out of the sky and the composition you managed to vreate here is fantastic.
I really love both of the versions a lot...in fact, i'll put this as my favorites :)

Bravo and TFS

Hi Emmanuel.

What a great sky you have there, the detail and contrast are superb. The B&W version really has that edge...
