    Not in to fake B&W but would be interested to see the original color version.

    Looks good to me. Reminds me of Red Rock Canyon State Park here in nut state.

    I've heard cliffs like that described as 'castellated', (castle-like).

    And I really like the way the cloud winds around the geology.

    flea77, thanks for the comment. I never worked this up in color as I decided at the outset that it should be black and white.

    abraxas, thanks. I'm not sure I've ever heard the term "castellated." I've learned a fair amount about the plants, animals and pre-Columbian history of the Southwest, but next to nothing about the geology. So much to learn, so little time.

    Simple, take a camera or film that shoots color, strip out the color, now you have a fake B&W. On the flip side, you could shoot it in B&W (using film) and have a real B&W. Of course you can do whatever makes your boat float, I just have a distaste for "wannabe" B&W images, they just don't look the same.

    I understand your viewpoint, flea77, but I don't feel that way. My father had a darkroom when I was growing up and I learned my way around in it. I don't have one and don't want one, so it's digital or nothing.

    Reminds me: I learned yesterday that it is apparently impossible to take a pure black and white picture with my camera. I thought you could do it by setting the camera to monochrome mode. No. I accidentally took some shots for HDRs in monochrome mode (not this photo) and when I processed them in Photomatix, they were in color.

    Wonderful picture, Fox Paw!!!!!!

    And if you take a picture that is in color with black and white film---this is also fake. There is no difference, I believe, in shooting a color scene with B&W film which then converts it to black and white in the camera, or converting it digitally in Photoshop from a color image.
    Sorry, film fans. It's the final image result that matters in my opinion.

    I've been running with a wild crowd these last few years.

    Do you think knowing more about what you're shooting helps?

    Nice image, Fox Paw.
    I don't think it would hurt to perhaps bring up a bit more detail in the foreground brush.
    Nicely composed.
