Desert Storm Coming ~ Mono

    Newer Older

    I have been going back through my archives for a number of reasons that include finding images that may work in monotone/B&W. This one had enough texture and contrast to appear promising. The original was captured with a 6 megapixel Nikon D70. I loved that camera! :)

    So what do you think? Color or black and white?

    Please take a moment and click on the image to see it large on a black background. To have an even closer look at the details open the "Original" size! Thank you in advance for looking at my work and for any comments, critiques and favorites. :)
    And please don't use my images without my consent.

      Tough call, but I love the b&w. It has a "haunted desert" quality to it, very striking. Great job on the conversion!

      Seen on my contacts.
      Tough choice, Tom. Both beautiful, but I see more detail in the B & W. An excellent choice for a conversion.

      Wow Tom, this is really stunning. I especially like the black and white, very nice.

      Beautiful classic desert scene. I like the content, grey tones and contrast. Well done.

      The b&w works best for me on this one Tom. The textures look really interesting in b&w. With no good winter shots so far (for me anyway), archive shots it is.

      Stunning Masterpiece!

      A masterpiece in mono!

      I really like the mono image the best Tom. The tones in the sky are more pronounced here giving it a more dramatic effect.
