Nice shot, Frances. Reminds me a little of the two capture of trees north of Santa Fe by Ansel Adams which he named «Aspens». Did you shoot it in genuine B&W or did you convert it digitally? If the latter, will you tell us something how (and why) you came to this result?
What a flattering comparison. Thank you so much! I always envisioned this as b&w but shot it in color, as I always do, and then converted it. I work in Adobe Camera Raw, which is similar to the Lightroom Develop Module, and then use Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex. The scene in this canal is nearly monochromatic. There are shades of browns and greens but the black of the water and the white bark of the trees predominate. I like the moody tones and stark contrast that b&w brings to this type of scene.
