The two versions offer quite different temperaments, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: That is certainly true, Ray. Until we see the second shot it might be thought that the landscape would be greens.
Both are really lovely - the layers stand out more in the B&W!
Mary MacADNski: I am pleased that they did as I only do the straight conversions and this one worked out well.

It doesn't look like the same scene, Mary - I do prefer the colour version
Mary MacADNski: It would be all green today.

The b&w is powerful
Mary MacADNski: It worked out quite well. This spot would be all greens today.
In the color version you get a better feel for what is what, at least in the foreground, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: This spot would be all greens today. If I go to town in the next few days I will take a little detour and snap one.

Both are very good. LOVE the B&W and in the coloured one it shows a 'river' is there...
Mary MacADNski: I like the B/W here for it's balance. I always do just a straight conversion and usually the lights and darks are not balanced. This one is.
Good to let it see the light of day.
Mary MacADNski: Today all would be green but for a blue sky and blue river. I wish I had to travel there today.

The b&w is a excellent one.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. I like the B/W here for it's balance. I always do just a straight conversion and usually the lights and darks are not balanced. This one is.
love both of them, Mary. but i suppose i like the b/w a bit more since the contrast is strong there.
Mary MacADNski: It is balanced very well for a straight conversion - unusual for me to achieve.

a fine, peaceful image in a moory landscape as I assume.
Mary MacADNski: This small stream and marshy area would be dressed in greens today.
I like the coloured one, Mary, some nice shades there.
Mary MacADNski: Today all would be green but for a blue sky and blue river. It is nice to live in such a changeable climate. I know I have winter scenes from here.

You won't be surprised to learn that I prefer the colour version as the different elements have more definition. I like the contrast in the B&W version.
Mary MacADNski: You will now have to imagine it today - all would be green but for a blue sky and blue river.
I this were mine I would crop the bottom third of the picture
Mary MacADNski: It certainly would make an entirely different picture, one with no big weeds. I think like a painter and those just have to be there.

What lovely layering. For me, the colour version has the edge.
Mary MacADNski: I am asking people to imagine it today - all would be greens but for a blue sky and blue stream.
