Alone & Majestic(Techn.Pan)


Photo Information
A different version of this special tree. One of my fav. places and one of most “photocopied”subjects. This time I have choosen a vertical frame(You already know the horizontal compo named “A kiss of Light”and its BW version). At that moment it seemed to me useful to try & choose a vert. compo to enhace slant of the “Majestic Single”and road caressing it on the left. Sky, clouds, vivid light of early afternoon, drove me to attempt a BW conversion. Sometimes I suppose that this place is more original and unusual if “portrayed”in BW and vertically framed. That tree and the endless country-road live in another space-time dimension and BW is useful to describe that feeling. Even a little bit of post-processing underlining that mood is allowed(IMHO)….I hope so! I have performed this conversion using BW Alien and technical-pan film : This place seems to be “freezed” in the last century…..
Glow effect in foreground is due to direct sunrays hitting plastic-wrapping of round hay-bales.

Very good different view of things. You are right. As here, B&W is better for most photos. Reduces the information to the essential. Colour often drowns things. Repeat: very good.

Lovely! Love the clouds on the horizon and the B&W treatment works really well.

Very arresting image. Stunning clarity - my first thought was that it might have been IR film, or 35mm film with a deep red filter. Well done!
