An Autumn Walk in Clumber Park #5 - Mono

The original of this was posted on 6th.November, and Richard (Trimage) wondered how it would look in B&W so this is the answer.  The original looked like this http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/An_Autumn_Walk_in_Clumber_Park__5%A3%21%3Bslash%A3%21%3B7_/

I can't make up my mind about it, but no doubt you will all have your own opinions and won't be backward in letting me know what they are.

If you are celebrating tonight I wish you a good evening and if you don't plan to look in tomorrow have a happy and healthy 2010.

Brian and Maureen

I think I like the B&W one. Trust Trimmage.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, I prefer the colour one actually.
I like this in b&w Brian. It gives it a feeling of age.

Happy new year to Maureen and you too
Brian Walbey: I suppose you are right Bill but I personally prefer the colour one. And a happy new year to Angie and yourself.

l think the light shows up better in the colour image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, and so do I to be honest.

I remember seeing this in colour and recall the similarity to Stourhead House. The colour version has the edge because of the subtle variations in tones and the light.

I hope you pulling something out of the hamper tonight and raising a glass. With luck, I'll be in bed. It's just another night...

Happy New Year to you both.
Brian Walbey: I prefer the colour one Alan. We might not see the New Year in, we are not going out and the TV is pretty dire. Happy New Year to you from us both.

Actually both versions are very accomplished Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Chad.
I prefer the colours version Brian which I find has brighter tones and light.
Enjoy your Sylvester night!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I prefer the colour one also.
I'm with the colourists smile A nice spot Clumber Park - they have a very good autumn event with old varieties of apple on sale. I can recommend it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. I done a Clumber Park series from 2nd.November for a week if you care to look at my Archive.
Yesterday's view was enticing, and tempted me to walk that path. This view wouldn't encourage a second look.
But then I am not a great fan of B&W.

Happy new year to you and Maureen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, I much prefer the colour version myself. I hope you and your husband have a good New year as well.
Happy new year to you both

I have to say I like the colour one best
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, and a happy New year to you also. I prefer the colour shot, perhaps it is because I was there and saw the colours for myself.

Oh, sorry, I prefer the coloured one- the warm autumn sun- the glittering light- the Stourhead feel and remembrance -all has been filled with such a brightness which cannot be radiated by b&w!
Yes, we are celebrating this Silvester evening -"the same procedure as every year" -and I have just enjoyed again watching "Diner for One"- the kult scetch at TV on Silvester in Germany "every year"- timeless- wonderful! Then we'll go to church and then we'll eat our special dinner which is already half- prepared...
A happy new year to you and Maureen!

I just caught up with a lot of pictures from you, I came home early so I spend the next hour at SC.
You do have a wonderful set of pictures again.
Love the B&W in this one.
Happy New Year to you and Maureen, love the picture with here winning first prize.
Brian Walbey: Thanks so much Astrid, I must admit to prefering the colour one of this image, probably because I can remember what a lovely morning we had there in the Autumn sunshine and colours, and a pleasant lunch as well of course. We are working our way through Maureens hamper slowly. Both of us wish you and Ginnie a very happy 2010.
A very happy New Year Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks and the same to you Albert.
This is lovely, but like the colour version best smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pameal, I prefer the colour one also.
makes it spookier....

smile
Brian Walbey: That's what I though Rob.
Works fine for me in mono Brian, and the small temple draws the eye as well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, I still actually prefer the colour, probably because I can remember how it was on the day.

Either way, a fine shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I still prefer the colour, probably because I remember how it was at the time.
I think you have done an excellent job on this one Brian ... In fact they both work well.

richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks for finding time to look back Richard, I'm pleased you like your suggested other version as well.
