Black and White Landscapes!

A Black and White version of my latest monument panoramic; Harlech Castle on the North Wales coast at sunrise. Shot on the 5D + 135L and a studio 058 tripod, it is a six frame portrait orientation stitch, resulting in a 46 mp picture. 1/100, f/11, ISO 100. I'm tending to favour the 5D for panoramics as it keeps the overall file size manageable and the detail is still superb.

Nicely done. Reminds me a bit of Castle Anthrax (cue usual Python references etc.) :)

Thanks Guy, I'm pleased you like it because it's a castle I've tried to get for a while, and I'm very happy with the result.

Although it looks like a candidate for Castle Anthrax I'm afraid there are no lovely ladies inside to greet you. I know, I've been inside :(

Nice one Danski.
For some reason the plane trees on the lake edge give it a feel of a bonsai model landscape.

I really like the B&W version. Well done, Sporgon. :)

Thanks.

Oddly enough, it is a Japanese garden area.

Many thanks. I can tinker with a B&W image for hours. The trick seems to be knowing when to stop !

Matterhorn from Zermatt. 5DSR, HDR, ISO 100, 70-200 II @ 155mm & f8. I don't often do B&W, but this HDR seemed made for monochrome. I think some of the HDR artifacts that are challenging in color are less distracting in B&W. Happy to have any advice from experts on how to improve this rendering.

screenshot to show fine detail as well

Not only the locations are perfectly beautiful, but the shot timing, angle, and creativity is also commendable. Loved it...
