Before diving in I want to thank everyone for your comments, retweets, and continued support here and in places like Google Plus and 500px. It is truly appreciated.  ;-)

In today’s short post we have a look at a B&W image captured during my last visit to Harve de Grace Maryland. A light fog still hovered above the trees in the background but it served as a bit of a distraction as opposed to  adding to the mood. With that in mind I felt it best to go mono on this one. I used the +2 exposure to bring out the rocks below the decking, which was originally too dark to show much detail.

Thanks for visiting!

    Great scene, Jimi. Your choice to use B&W is perfect for the subject. I really like the detail and contrast.

    Beautiful capture! I could be wrong, but it looks like its leaning a tad to the right. I have a suck obsession with horizons and still muck mine up all the time :)

      You could be right. :-) I had the same thought but the horizon on the water looked okay so I figured the land may actually be tilted a bit. Using the grid mode on the crop tool, things looked okay. Weird. The house is built on a knoll of sorts. Pretty steep incline off to the right.

      Good eye, man. These things tend to bug me as well.

  9. Wonderful image Jimi! The mono look suits this picture so well, it has a very historical feel to it. It’s a bit of a cliché with HDR but it definitely has an artistic look to as well. Superb!

  10. Wow, what an awesome and serene image Jimi

  12. Love the contrast here Jimi, I read Adams comments, I am a stickler as well, and I cannot really tell if it is leaning or not, it’s almost like an optical illusion, regardless, nice work and processing
