  4. I love how the shadows become the star in those two middle black and whites! And the beige, whispy weed really stands out in the first shot!

  17. Both versions are wonderful. - I do like the pretty colors of the photo with the grasses.
    Also on the fence shots I think the shadows stand out more in the BW shots.

  19. Chain-link fencing can be very interesting.

  20. I like the photos both ways - each has its own interesting aspects. The trees are magnificent!

  21. I can't decide which versions of your pictures I like the best. They are all good! That is so neat that your sister went to FSCW. Both of my parents attended FSU the first year it went co-ed. My Dad was just back from the war and UF was overflowing so he decided to come to Tallahassee. Smart man, since there were so many pretty women here and that's when he met my Mom!

  23. I really like both versions -- B&W and color!! Marvelous captures for the day as always!! I hope you and Artmuse have a lovely, fun weekend!!

  24. I like them both ways. It's interesting that a park fence has barbed wire on top!

  25. There's something intriguing about B&W photos. Maybe it's the old fashioned feel to them. I couldn't help but hear John Denver as I looked at the pictures. "Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River. Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze. la la la...

  26. Enjoying every shot in both versions. Good job indeed.

  34. Stunning variety of tones in the first photo. Delightful landscape. And love the perspective of the wire fence.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the mountains and the ocean. Maybe because I live inland and rarely see them. Beautiful landscape :)

  39. I like the B&W views a bit better - the monochrome allows the topography to better reflect the magnificence of the WV hills beyond. Ver nicely captured!

  40. I read the story of Mary Draper Ingles and have crossed a bridge named for her in West Virginia. The scenery is fantastic as is her story.
