    looks cold.
    subject lends itself well to B/W.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Canoncan, I do like your choice of motifs! Something as "normal" and abundant, as this hay bale and your photo gives it "immortality". That is nice!
    Was there a colour version first?
    Was it bland?
    Or what made you try this one out in b+w? (Looks good, I should add!)

    LaFoto the coloured version really had little colour and was flat. The BW to me had better texture. Thanks for the feedback.

    That is more than a hay bale in these parts. Excellent shot!

    Personally I think you captured the desolation of winter and its effect on nature very well, the textures are really good and the choice of B/W over color does increase the dramatic features of the image.

    as for color, I prefer to shoot bales of hay during summer time, the freshly cut short strands of hay left on the feild (of color green) with a low lying sun, usually brings warmth and life to such items.


    Kudos on the picture, very nice !

    The bale takes up too much of the picture. I would suggest either just the bale or backing up and adding some more background to the picture.
