    Just messing around and tried converting this image I posted a few months ago to greyscale. I liked the way it turned out, so I posted it. This is one of my personal favorites...Lake Dorothy and Mt. Neva near Nederland, Colorado.

    Personally I find this a bit intimidating - great tones, interesting sky, nice and crisp - Kinda wish the right hand side didn't look quite so severed - but heck - kinda hard to fit a mountain range into the frame of one photo - not much can be done about that now, is there. I think it's wonderful.

    This is a great shot and I love the B&W!! never saw the color, but there is no need for it.

    i really like this, and although i didnt see the color version, i can already tell its better in black and white. you should do a series of these, as this print is very "classic" in its nature.

    Very nice. Awesome tones. But it looks just a tad oversharpened to me. Or that might just be the image compression.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I like the sharpness because I think it helps bring out more detail in the rock.

    It makes me quite happy to see this photo so sharp and contrasted! Brings out the texture of the rock as opposed to the smoothness of the snow. I think I like the b+w version better (if I remember the colour one right), although for most of the time I'm a "colour person" myself. But well done b+w photos impress me much! This one does.

    This is one of the best landscapes I have seen for a while (and I normally don't dig on B&W). You should be proud.
