You're fooling us :-) I know! You put this stone before taking picture and now you wrote note about glacial erratic :-) You're very naughty :-)
Very original picture! Black and white works very well with surface of stone and textures of sky/water/ground. Great composition. Interesting note. Very rare subject on TN.
My what a big rock you have :)
I always like B&W. Lovely textures and great tones and contrast. I love the sky

A very interesting photography, really stands out much more in B/W, would be well a WS in color. Very artistic results.

Nice b&w shot, the stone on the foreground is very interesting.

La photo est très belle et bien composée. J'aime beaucoup les trois plans air-eau-rocher, avec une profondeur de champs qui met l'ensemble en valeur. Très belle lumière avec un beau traitement du rocher et du ciel. Le sujet est également en soi très intéressant.

Excllent work, great composed and capture, nicly B&W BG POV DOF nice work
Are you sure this isn't just some fancy cloning trick??? Just kidding. My area of Oregon is full of large round boulders...from Montana! ...brought here by glaciers. You acheived a nice range of tonal values here. I had to really crank up the brightness on my monitor to see them though....frustrating. I see what you mean about getting lower. It would have been more interesting if the rock had intersected with the water or even the sky. Thanks for sharing an interesting photo and note.

A very beautiful and interesting post!
Before i forget: lovely work again with your new lens! :)
This is a very informative picture above all - i personally learned that the Netherlands was affected quite strongly by the last iceage, but i had no idea that you may actually find rocks from Norway ;)
The B&W conversion looks great and it pushes the mood of the picture even further.
It also concentrates almost all the attention to the big round rock (i think if it would been in color, the colorsful BG would have been distracting).
So, as a conclusion, i really like it :)
Great work, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

I like your conversion to B&W here. I think this was a perfect shot for that. Nice tonal range and strong contrast in the scene. I agree that a lower POV would have made even a stronger composition. Great texture in the clouds. Well done my friend!

Besides the interesting note, that shows the incredible power of a glacier transporting this huge rolling stone huundreds of Kms., I like the composition and the mood in B&W that you have given to this picture.

This is one of those shots that was begging for a BW conversion. Seems a bit on the dark side to me though; maybe a bit too much contrast?

a very interesting geological event and a great landscape in b&w with a beautiful composition...that huge rock in the forefront is absolutely awsome !

good subject and I enjoyed seeing it.About 26 kms north and west from where I live is the world's largest glacial erratic,which is just west of Okotoks Alberta.I think I'll post a picture of it soon,so stay tuned.Your picture is perhaps a little bit dark but that is alright by me,one more thing how large is this rock?

I have missed this posting... And that rock could well have come from Norway in the year 8000 BC!
Yeah this is a typical retreating ice deposit, and no problem as the rim of the glacier was as far south as France...
A well composed image, which also has educational value!
Have a great spring weekend,
