Three very different treatments and I like them all Alf. I especially like the texture of the sand in the second one and I think monochrome works really well in this case. The lighting on the diagonal blades of grass in the third is delicious.

Re: A mix of Landsacpes

You really caught some colours on #3, Alf. Don't know why but #1 appeals a tad more, just my preference. As usual you have given us some excellent shots to comment on.

Thanks very much Ron
For 2 the monochrome was considered when the shutter was fired.

Thanks OM
When I was messing with 1 when I took it and was not happy with the amount of cntrast I added but when I came back to it I hardly did anything which I prefer. The tones are partly due to the ND filter I used but I liked them so they stayed. It was a case of coming back to the image to see it with fresh eyes.

3 great shots, the third really stands out for the strong textures and tones.

Re: A mix of Landsacpes

Number 2 is stunning! B&W is a great choice.

Number 3 is great for colours and detail, but doesn't draw me in, and number 1, unfortunately, does nothing for me. Visuals are subjective, and clearly it's a great shot as others like it!

Number 2, I'd print and hang.

David.
