It looks interesting, but it's too small to evaluate.

Thanks.  I don't know how post/link here any larger, unless a Flick 'lightbox' might help.

It is very, very interesting in concept, composition and tonality. Great job!

It is so ominous, that a sunrise, a generally joyful event, would not be the first thing to cross my mind, had you not mentioned it in the title. A distant nuclear explosion (God forbid), however, would (just a joke, not criticism).

Thanks!  It was shot on the teensy sensor of a Panny LX5 some time ago, and I wanted to go for sort of a "Mordor Comes to Merced" look.

The original treatment was this.

The B&W treatment just seemed more ominous.

Don't mistake lack of talent for genius.

I definitely prefer the colour version, although the mono version would look really good as a backdrop to a poster for a horror movie or something - I didn't think I particularly liked images with lots of negative space, but people keep posting some great work on here that keep proving me wrong.

Great shot, don't know why, just know that it is and that's all that matters.  Smiley

Thanks!

I never really spend too much time at the color one, and got it done before I ever got my hands on NIK tools, so maybe I'll spruce it up a bit.

As you can see, even thought it's really foggy, it's a bit noisy.

My advice: Don't change a thing from the original b/w. I've seen thousands of windmill, sky, and tree shots. But never one as interesting as this. As to noise, Nik should fix this one up very easily.

I would also choose the B&W version. It looks more mysterious…

In its current size I'll go for the color version. But I also realize that the B&W could be striking if it were larger. As it is, the black sky overwhelms the delicate details in the lower right.

Mjo, do you have Photoshop, or Lightroom, or Photoshop Elements? If so, all you have to do is create a jpeg that's about 6 inches wide, and post it to LuLa. I don't understand why people feel they have to link from flickr. The only thing to watch out for is file size. You really should hold file size down to the neighborhood of 500k. If it's bigger it sometimes takes an annoying amount of time to download.

I do, in fact, have both PS and LR, and everything I post is has gone through LR.

Never thought to do what you suggested before.  I'll try it.

Flickr (or 500px) are just easier usually because the shots are already there.

These two images, are to my eye just that two entirely different images each with its own "message"

I tend towards preferring the monochrome imagine but not to slight the "original" image.

I think this  is a great idea. But when there is miles of black or white paper to traverse, the payoff at the end has to be a bit more exciting. I think the windmill/tree doesn't have quite the payoff value to carry all this paper. But it is a great idea and nice execution.
