Stripes of light
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I originally shot this photo in colour, because the sun effect on the forest gave it a really cool colour. But - I could never manage to capture it right. The grey, moody, autumn-rain-feeling just didnt leave the picture. The result was a oversaturated or overexposed as I tried to squeeze out that cool colour. I then experimented with lowering the saturation, but the more I desaturated the picture, the more did I see that it had a great black and white potentional. Finally the crisp sunlit areas came forward and the darker areas remained without noise - the contrast was just great!|
At least.... thats what I thought, what YOU think is the big question??!

Bravo pour cette belle prise unique et originale.
Very good result by posting it in b&w.
The atmosphere in your picture is very special. Original pov and framing.

just catching up after a reasonable absence and missed this one.
I actually like it. Sometimes B&W works really well and it is not something I use much at all. The patches of light against the dark areas works really well adn the composition is excellent.
