  1. The color one . . . if you are asking.

  6. Il colore del b&w Γ¨ piΓΉ profondo πŸ™‚

    February 20, 2013 at 10:49 am

    • Si, ma il colore del colore e’ piu’ vivido. Se non era per il blue del cielo, avrei scielto la foto bianca e nera.

      Pero’, gusti sono gusti; niente di male nel scielgliere una verso l’atra.

      • B&w sta per black and white πŸ˜‰

        February 20, 2013 at 12:09 pm

        • I know. Just saying the blue is what swayed me to choosing the color over the black and white.

          . . . and giving me a chance to practice my native language.

          • Having fun? πŸ™‚

            February 24, 2013 at 11:38 am

    • Sono d’accordo, Popof … le ombre sono piΓΉ ricchi nella foto in bianco e nero … mostrano piΓΉ contrasto rispetto al colore colpo.

  7. Those are beautiful Scott. Superb and so reminiscent of the winter I love. Of the two I think I have to go with the B&W version – classic monchrome scene.

    February 20, 2013 at 11:31 am

    • Thank you, Andy…and yes, classic winter scene to me, too.

      February 24, 2013 at 11:39 am

  8. Absolutely stunning Scott! I’d go with the colour myself but I like both. πŸ™‚

    February 20, 2013 at 11:33 am

    • Adrian…with the stunning Cornish colors…thank you, my friend. πŸ™‚

      February 24, 2013 at 11:40 am

  9. lots of light n shade to allow you eyes to go awandering

    February 20, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    • Yes, indeed…thank you, Scott.

      February 24, 2013 at 11:40 am

  10. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you which one I prefer. I would hate to think of what the world would be like if I were color blind. That’s what monochrome shots make me think of. How desolate life would be without color. Even when it’s only a touch of blue….

    February 20, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    • But, of course, Gunta…even just the touch of blue. πŸ™‚

    Liking this one best in color – brings out the sparkle in the trees and the glitter of ice on the branches. Beautiful image.

    February 20, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    • Thank you, Lois. πŸ™‚

  12. It’s hard dealing with such high contrast subjects – you really do it beautifully I don’t always prefer the B&W in comparisons but his time I do. It seems to have more focus (not “be more in focus” but have more definite places for the eye to go).

    February 20, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    • Thank you, Lynn…I thought the black and white offered more contrast, but I do love the color, too…so I shared both. πŸ˜‰

      February 24, 2013 at 11:42 am

  13. I’d have to say the color one for me. There is so little color to be found in winter -I’ll take whatever I can get.

    February 20, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    • It can look rather bleak out there sometimes, can’t it?

      February 24, 2013 at 11:54 am

    B & W for me (if you’re asking) – it’s moodier and more mysterious.

    Although…………..I do like the colour one too.

    February 20, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    • Thank you, Victoria, there is quite a bit of contrast in the darker image…shadows….

      February 24, 2013 at 11:55 am

  15. Difficile de choisir entre les deux car elles sont superbes d’une faΓ§on ou d’une autre.

    February 21, 2013 at 6:22 am

    • Mes pensΓ©es exactement, Val, merci.

      February 24, 2013 at 11:56 am

  16. love the black and white one. nice contrast

    February 22, 2013 at 3:34 am

    • Thank you, Shirkit Victoria. πŸ™‚

  17. Beautiful winter ! πŸ™‚

    February 23, 2013 at 6:13 am

    • Very much so, Ordered Chaos…thank you!

    Beautiful composition. I prefer the B&W. For some reason my eye is drawn down the trail in the B&W version. In the colour version, what I notice first is the bit of blue sky. Must have something to do with how the positive & negative space being emphasized in colour. Or it could be because I like the B&W one. πŸ˜€

    February 24, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    • All of that works…very nice that you like it…thank you. πŸ™‚

      February 24, 2013 at 5:22 pm

  19. Were you skiing here, Scott? I see ski tracks…
    It’s a gorgeous looking place.

    February 26, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    • Hello, Karen…no, I wasn’t skiing, but there were several other people who came and went up the road on skis when I was there. It is a rather beautiful place, too…winter and summer and all points in between! πŸ™‚

      February 28, 2013 at 8:08 pm

  20. You’ve got some really cool stuff up here!

    March 6, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    • We sure do, Yaakov. πŸ™‚
