Muted and understated but beautifully so.
I bet a print of this would be a joy to behold.

Well done Russ.

I think it's one of the most interesting photographs you've posted on LuLa.

I would have tightened up the framing and converted it to b&w. Kind of like this.

I like the color one just as it is. Beautiful light.

Very nice!

and not a man or hand thereof in sight!

The b&w conversion makes a different photograph with a different mood. I don't dislike it but I think I'd rather have the colour one on my wall.

Beautiful light, beautiful capture. Colour is better, I think.

A fine, tapestry-like shot, Russ.

Russ, if I am not very much mistaken, you seem to be doing a lot more landscape work these days, is it just something you are getting more into, or is it that new Nikon that has somehow helped to push you in this direction?

Whatever the reason, I am definitely enjoying what you are doing  Smiley

Thanks for the encouraging comments everybody. Actually I've always done a bit of landscape here and there. This one's strictly a study in the colors of dawn light. In my own estimation, B&W converts it into a dull collection of brush and moss. One thing you can learn from Ansel is that to do good landscape in B&W you need a primary focal point. Without color, this just doesn't have one.

To answer Dave's question: Street's still my favorite genre, but here in Florida I have to go a fair distance to get to where I can do street. Ideally I'll get over to St. Augustine for a couple days before long and be back on the street. In the meantime, the little Palatlakaha river that runs through this retirement community is fascinating when the light is right. Oh, and the D800 helps a lot, Dave.

Here are two more. The great blue landing in the treetops was descending at first light. The great blue in the foggy river is a cliché, but sometimes you just have to go ahead and shoot a cliché.

Your dawn image has a wonderful painterly quality to it Russ.  Don't change a thing!

The colour one is best imo. It does look like a painting and that is a compliment. BTW there are some streets in Scotland that look like that. Wink Smiley

Keep the colour. The subject is uninteresting, but the great light saves the photo and turns it something to examine.
