Some mono landscapes

Been experimenting with a few mono landscapes. Thoughts?

I like them, #1 is almost IR-esque.

I was thinking that, the vegetation in the first gives the impression it's covered in hoarfrost.

Yea, I wound the green luminance up a bit. This is better I think...

Re: Some mono landscapes

I do like the 'motion' introduced in to no. 1 by the differing directions of the grass, reeds and branches.

No. 2 looks slightly odd to me because of the 'broken' effect of the tree reflection, but a lovely image otherwise.

Re: Some mono landscapes

I prefer the original No1, the processing has created a lovely effect that I really like.

No2 is a more complex scene that includes much detail, but lacks the bold simplicity and strong leading lines of No1.

Re: Some mono landscapes

I like the compositions but the processing seems a bit harsh to me. I'd prefer a lot less of the frosty feel, it looks a bit false to me. Sorry Paul I usually love your shots.

Re: Some mono landscapes

I agree, the first version of #1 has a lovely atmospheric feel.

Re: Some mono landscapes

OK - I've reverted the Flickr image back to the original. I agree that it looks better.

Ahh that is why that shot no longer shows I would suggested leaving the edit and just making it private so only you could see it on Flickr but it would still show on here and the thread would make sense.
