The Little Suhardul Peak, or Suhardul Mic, as seen from it's poiana, or glade. This location is an hours hike uphill directly from the small resort village of Lacul Rosu and is a favorite of walkers, artists and especially rock climbers. Taken just before sundown.

I really like the composition and the textures in this, though I really miss the colours.
Delightful posting

Hello Steve and Ioana
Another Romanian sentimental picture as for me :) I was there twice and this area is really great for me. Bravo for showing BW version, it is really "climatic" presentation and brings memories about nature monument.
TFS and best greetings from Lodz,

Hi Steve,
i really like your composition here, so typical of your style and very well executed as always. I'm not sure about the b & w here though. I think there maybe needs to be more contrast between the superb looking Suhardul Mic and the sky behind, which looks a little bright in comparison to me. I'm by no means an expert in B & W so this is only a matter of personal taste and i'm sure others would disagree! All in all though, a great shot as ever.

A nice choice for a B&W conversion. It appears as though it is granite eh? There is quite the process of apply Zone V as best as one can to conversions and I am just now reading it. Good works!

What a great B/W shot,
Perfect lighting,contrast and composition,
Superb shot,Welldone.

Good Luck

Also I am a great lover of the photograph black and white. I believe that the world shown by means of these two colours can be equally beautiful, as this traditionally coloured. Thereof proves this picture with very nicely arranged plans. Superb is manner framed and very goods is handiwork the photograph.
Best regards from Poznan,

Hi Steve,
I like the idea of making this look like a old photo due to the sephia coloring. It also brought out the texture in the rock a lot more then a color version.
The composition is wonderful and leads the eye perfectly into the scenery. You are showing us the beauty of your new country perfectly. I am actually slowly moving Romania iup the list of countries to visit.
