Breckenridge Pastorale 2 - The Trees
Martin Varga and I stopped on Breckenridge Road on the way down, finding a beautiful immersive late afternoon fall illumination.
I used my 105 mm f/2.5 Auto-Nikkor and D40 to capture this shot, an array of trees beautifully outlined against the sky and hillside awash with sidelight from the bright and transcendent rays of the sun soon to set.
I choose to render this in black and white because it communicates both the warmth and texture clearly..
The color version excelled for the warmth but lack clarity. This monochrome hopefully will give you the clarity without losing the warmth.
I also think the b/w reveals the directionality of the lighting more convincingly, and thus the shadows come across with increased dimensionality.
