Hello Mesut - I really like this in B&W. You have managed the conversion well with a good tonal range and some definite black and white contrast. Beautiful shadows and reflections in this attractive winter lake scene. Have a lovely Sunday Rosemary

Superbe image de montagne en noir et blanc.
Très bonne gestion de la lumière, aucune zone surexposée et un cadrage équilibré et plaisant.
Cette photo en B&W serait sans doute aussi réussie en couleur.
Bravo, bien vu.

This is for sure a beautiful landscape post! It was taken with great contrast and light management so the result presented in b&w version looks really good. To be honest I would like to see a colorful version. I'm sure that it must be special. Please consider to put it as workshop for those who love colors:)
Have a lovely day!

iyi pazarlar mesut dede. sizin arşivlerde kim bilir neler saklı. yaz olsa da şurada iki kulaç atıversek dedim ama şu an sıcak evimde böyle iyi...

Glorious photograph. Dare I say that Ansel Adams would have been proud of it? This is a classic monochrome landscape study, beautifully composed and lit. It's only the people and the ski lift that spoil the illusion of this being a photograph from the 1930s
Angelillo (9372) 2013-11-10 1:44
Wow, Mesut... This shot is extraordinary. The black and white option here is perfect, cause the predominant snow... the mounts at background are magnificent... excellent frame and composition....
PaulVDV (20233) 2013-11-10 3:09
So you also like winter holidays.
I generally have a preference for colour pictures and I'm curious how bright blue the sky would be here together with its reflection in the water ... but I have to tell that this landscape looks absolutely wonderful in black & white.
With the snow all over the photo and the dark trees spread over the mountain slopes and reflected in the water, this is a gorgeous picture.
The winter and the Alpes at their best!
Kind regards, Paul

an accomplished B&W shot this, snow is notoriously difficult to photograph in this medium as the light management has to be spot on. This is perfect and the effect just captivating and delicious. Beautiful - my congratulations!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

Ah, the alps in winter, how I long already for the snowy days and the skiing season again.
Wonderful presentation that in black and white works probably even better than in color. The black lake in the foreground contrast so nicely with the white snow and the ski slopes in the back makes me want to get and grab my skis right away.
have a great sunday
jacquest (18097) 2013-11-10 4:56
The light in this black & white image is superb and eye catching. The point of view is excellent and the small lake is well framed. The reflections on the water add to the composition.

great b/w picture, i find that with a snow landscape it fits very well. good contrast and light.

cette photo est sublime en noir et blanc comme le début de ta série sur les lacs; reflets dans le lac de la neige et montagne

dreamily snowy pay sage you captured.

un b&w di grande effetto, splendido nella composizione e ben dosato.
C'è una bella luce e la neve risplende candida.

Hello dear Mesut,
this picture of a wintry lanscape is really alluring. There's wonderful depth and clarity all over the landscape, details are crisp and attractive. You've moderated the strong light and the luminosity of the snow superbly, the contrasts are effective, the illuminated parts and the dark details are described in a well balanced and effective way. I love the textures, the shadows and the reflections. There's a sense of intensity in the calmness of the snowy and sunny landscape. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
cornejo (27481) 2013-11-10 8:10
Hello Mesut, excellent black and white photograph of this beautiful alpine landscape with beautiful lake, very well captured in this beautiful and interesting picture, with good sharpness and beautiful light. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
holmertz (36453) 2013-11-10 8:32
This is really a very beautiful view. I hate the winters of northern Europe but looking at a picture like this is a great pleasure. You made a perfect and very suitable conversion to B&W, and this would even have done well in your former series of reflections.
Silvio1953 (115175) 2013-11-10 10:08
Ciao Mesut, fantastic mountain landscape, fascinating reflections in lovely lake, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Merhaba Dear Mesut
Oooh look out Ansel Adams! I love this B&W conversion, the predominance of white snow and ice is pure magic. Those glassy reflections on the lake have been rendered superbly. Pure magic!
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
jjcordier (72658) 2013-11-10 22:54
Un très beau noir et blanc (que tu es allé chercher loin dans ton disque dur!) de ce beau paysage de Courchevel.
subhendu_bagchi (25117) 2013-11-11 0:33
wow, very good one. Love the snow covered place. Beautiful surrounding. Nicely presented in black and white. Excellent one. Tfs & Namaste.
Noel_Byrne (20143) 2013-11-11 0:46
This is really beautiful, and shows exactly why your choice of this series in black and white was the perfect choice. The tones of grey white and black here are beautiful, even without color there is a definite sense of the cold. In no small part thanks to the excellent snowy foreground, the textures in the snow are brilliant.
Thanks as always, have a great week.
mirosu (12290) 2013-11-11 2:21
Beautiful winter photo from French Alps. The light and the light contrast are the most compelling and captivating aspects. I love the clean sky as well as the hills and slopes with white snow, an excellent contrast. Very well done.

dta (62422) 2013-11-11 5:08
Hello Mesut ,
Not still winter ... but what a eautiful winter pic ! Excellent choice of the B&W conversion .
macjake (51436) 2013-11-11 13:32
I know why people are enjoying this photo...
there's just something about the overall balance, the overall tranquility and how it soothes the soul just by looking at it.
very easy on the eyes I guess, looks great.
enjoy your day
hidibyendu (871) 2013-11-11 15:28
This is superb, excellent in b/w. I would love to see the colored varsion also, if you had. Although its filled up with snow, so probably its better in b/w.
Nice sharpness and reflections in the little bit of water remaining.
dkmurphys (45873) 2013-11-11 22:24
Very beautiful mountain scene. The image has it all, a perfect winter composition.
Enjoy a good day.
ChrisJ (94462) 2013-11-13 13:42
I really regret not going to the Rhone Alps but just didn't have the time to fit it in my itinerary. A fantastic b&w shot with superb sharpness and wonderful tonal range and reflections. Good light contrasts and framing. The white snow enhances the graphism of the dark pine trees in the bg. Tfs!
annjackman (17557) 2013-11-14 8:13
I love this b/w image - it is rendered very well. The quality of light is beautiful and you did well with the white areas.
Kind Regards, Ann
