I'm seeking some inspiration. Share your most interesting B&W landscape shots?
From this morning.
Wow, Tony, That must have been a worthwhile morning.
It was, David. Cold, snowy, sunny, and I encountered only 1 person in a bit over 7 miles. The scenery in that park is stunning.

Garry, I've said to before, and I'll say it again: you need to do a book. That's a really wonderful image.
Here's one I've just converted.

Converted in Snapseed (which I seem to be doing 90% of my editing in, these days) from this morning's crop.
Orange filter used on the last two. I guess thats somewhat akin to the old "Daylight" filter we used to use for black and white film.
Martin, do you take a particular approach to composition? You seem so consistently good at that.
Well that's very kind of you to say so, David! However I don't think I consciously do anything much any more. I tend to aim for the golden section rather than the rule of thirds, and with landscapes I try to get a bit of foreground interest if possible, but really I just move the camera/lens around until the image looks good to me Perhaps there are some more complex inbuilt rules that I follow but I couldn't articulate them, I'm afraid.
