Great feedback. I've now added a second edit to the original post above with a bit of contrast added to the house.I wonder if a little more contrast in the house alone (that will brighten the trim) will make the house more prominent?
I'm not sure which one I prefer myself. The difference is very slight.I actually prefer your first shot... the added constrast makes the walls too dark, IMO. Lovely shot..
Wouldn't it be amazing to be able to do that?I do love the way you tease the light into doing what you want it to!
LOL!is this the same house you twisted by your technical cyclone?
When I'm composing an image I already know if it will be a colour or B&W photo, so I rarely ever process an image in both colour and B&W. When I do, I tend to post both images. In this case, only a B&W version exists, sorry (but thank you for the very kind words!).Since your originals in colors are astonishingly beautiful, i want to see them too (to convert such ones to B&W needs great courage and is like a sacrifice )
