A study in dark and light

The old fence was caught between the light of day and the shadows of the oncoming sunset.

When I first processed this I was going to post it as a color image but in an image such as this with not much subject matter...the version in black and white emphasizes the contrasts of light and dark much better than the color version.

A simple picture often is a great subject for a monochrome image.

Absolutely stunning, Dan. I think you were right with this one. Color would not have done this photo justice.

I agree that simple is great. I love fences and fields and your shot is amazing.

Heather after reading your comment...I went back to the color picture and you are right....for some reason on this one...the color was distracting.
