This is really nice. I love to see a huge sky! I could see this on the wall of the restaurant/bar blown up large scale.

hugo poon from hong kong, Hong Kong

What a magnificent view and beautiful atmosphere you've captured!!! Marvelous work, Stephen! It definitely deserves a large frame and a prominent space on the wall!:-)

@hugo poon: Thanks, Hugo. I passed your good wishes on to Mike ( the restaurant owner ) - he really enjoyed having a booster in Hong Kong. I think we might be able to get you a 'comped' meal if you're in the neighborhood.

Like this beautiful wild landscape. Lot of softness in this great B&W.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I guess I have a slight preference for b&w most of the time, except perhaps when it comes to wildlife images.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Didn't work that well....I have a slight preference for b&w in the aggregate, except for wildlife photos. I have a stronger preference when it comes down to some categories like street photography and particular individual images. Don't see how color could improve much on this.
