    I suppose its what we see most of. Color is contemporary while black and white is from the good ole days. Once a pic is black and white it becomes eternal. Could have been shot yesterday or a hundred years ago. While a color pic we usually think of as being a recent shot. I usually prefer color but in cases where color isnt important I certainly love a good black and white. By the way, I think I prefer your black and white shot too. Lots of detail with many shades of gray.

    I agree, it just gives a different feel. It's great what a little PP can do.

    "windmills" of the road and bizzare "stone age" in the field...

    Beautiful clean shots Gintaras. I wonder how they would have looked with Prosperos HDR method? But very nice nonetheless.

    thanks Bynx, however i was not pleased how they appear out here, original shots were crisper and cleaner after converted from Raw. do not know what happened during converting those into small jpegs.

    on composition, funny things we see sometimes, i am still guessing for which purpose those stones were placed in the field... hardly for a fence as i could see, probably local peasants found their way to creativity i presume

    Gintaras, I love the second one. Nice rolling hills. Great job!

    I couldn't decide where to put this one so it's here now:

    Great shot Brian! And creative use of the watermark too.

    Mumbles, thanks, I myself did not appreciate them that much but you and others encouraged me.
    Your shot would belong to Abstracts but very nice nonetheless and B&W cast works just great... though I wonder how this looks in color?

    Adam, thanks, I wish they could be better but sun was so bright that day. I took both shots on a country road from Vienna in the direction to the Czech boarder. Actually landscape was really inviting to taking pictures but light was harsh and difficult to handle. Even polarizer would not do as the sky was mostly white-grey no matter sun shining.

    Ginteras, great shots there. Second one is simply superb. I understand when you said they looked even better before resizing.
