Everyone visiting Granada goes to Alhambra, takes photo of El Patio de los Arrayanes and (it it is TE member) posts it here. I did just the same! My last photo from Granada was also from this particular patio. But now I would like to show some photos of the hidden gem, the secret place that was not presented here (I checked more than 80 pages). I wonder if someone was there? It is very near Alhambra. Nosw it is a kind of a uzzle, I will write about it later. Black and white seems nice for me here, but in Workshop I show the version in colour.
see big photo on beta
If you do not like black and white see in colour

I find your colour version the most beautiful, we see it panorama beside the gallery also nice in colour.
The black and white version shall certainly have, his charms, but I remains at the colour version.
You choose a very well angle with depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, also nice captured,
Very well done, TFS.

I like both versions of this lovely composition with a slight preference for the black and white which allows us to concentrate on the classical architectural lines offered by the repeating columns. Fine long perspective with some interesting shadow play. Very good technical presentation.

Ciao cara Itchy Feet
We don't often see B&W from you. This is superb. I love the perspective and the off-centre framing. The sharpness and contrast are really eye-catching and the repeating columns lead the eye into the frame nicely. I don't recognise this part, but then was only in Granada for 1 day. I wish I had spent more time.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

a lovely B&W study this with enticing lines and shadows. I love the glimpse of the city below and also the ambience of this creative composition. Works beautifully. Inspiring imagery!
Have a good week - B.

Le regard suit naturellement le long corridor dans l'image, ce qui lui donne de la profondeur. J'aime le jeu des ombres sur le sol et la transformation en noir et blanc.

amazing place with nice perspective you captured.

This is a fine shot and a lovely place regardless of PP. I like the colour version too and I don't see that it has gained much from the conversion to B&W. But since it hasn't lost anything either, it's allright with me. The pillars provide good depth and create a fine diagonal and the view towards he city is great.

Hello Malgo - Personally I prefer the colour version of this shot as the warm light is so pretty and the distant view seems better defined in colour. That is not to say that this isn't a lovely shot in B&W and well managed too. This looks lime a quiet spot where one can enjoy the view without distraction.

Fine monochrome of the pathway lined with fluted classical columns supporting cross members.
With an attractive distant sweeping view of Granada from on high, and all the way to the distant hills on the horizon.
rogerl (1544) 2014-06-23 13:48
Malgo, the B&W and color versions are completely different photos! The one here is very mysterious, with the dark passage leading off to the left, and the buildings almost looking like a painted backdrop. The color version (which I must admit I prefer) looks like a very tranquil summer scene. Nice composition and cropping on both. Thanks.

Pieknie prezentujesz Granade, a to monochromatyczne zdjecie ma dodatkowo ciekawy klimat. Od drugiej wersji bije cieplo kolorow, ale chyba b-w byl lepszym wyborem. Ciekawa architektura i ciekawy kadr

sono molto indeciso tra questa versione e quella a colori, mi piacciono entrambe, ognuna ha delle particolarità diverse. In questa versione si ha più interesse per il colonnato e il gioco di luci e ombre, mentre nella versione a colori si è piacevolmente distratti dal panorama e dal senso di profondità.
Mi fido della tua scelta.

Pergola z takim widokiem! Ładna perspektywa kolumnady i ładna gra świateł, świetnie skomponowane
jjcordier (75776) 2014-06-23 22:21
Une vision originale de Grenade! Ta version noir et blanc est intéressante mais je crois que je préfère encore plus la version couleur.
jemaflor (83895) 2014-06-23 23:26
Good depth and contrast with the good choice for a b&w presentaion, light and sahdes are well managed, tfs.
williewhistler (13771) 2014-06-24 0:16
each version has it`s own attraction for me with perhaps the colour having just a little more impact for me.
I do enjoy the perspective created by your well chosen view point and the long shadows.
Best wishes Les.

This is a delightful photograph and how wonderful that you have managed to capture this little jewel which has not been represented on TE before!
I'm not sure whether I prefer the colour or the monochrome version but both are excellent, the black and white version perhaps giving a more "olde worlde" look to it and showing off the textures of the stonework to better effect, while the colour version lightens our mood with the lush green foliage and the gorgeous blue sky.
A beautifully composed image, the line of the walkway and the columns drawing us well into the picture, lovely oblique lighting with fine light and shade and exquisite detals and sharpness.
ikeharel (56242) 2014-06-24 8:39
I can understand why posted a B&W format, Malgo, but personally I prefer the colors version: It shows Granada and the archade beautifully and in vivid tones.
Fine combined two subjects, the vally where the town and the beautiful veranda looking out from high point.
Impressive taken picture.

wonderful view from Granada. Excellent choice of pov. The b+w mode matches very good for this picture.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

Although the color photo is beautiful in its own right, for myself, this black & white version steals the show. It has a very classic, old world type of appeal, and even in monochrome there's still a strong perception of the warm sun blessing this moment. Love the combination of converging perspective with a wide open view to the right, and the play of light and shade just makes it all the more enticing. Top marks for presenting an original as well. A walk, and photo opportunity well worth taking! Enjoy the new day. All the best.
serp2000 (39696) 2014-06-24 22:59
it's not so easy to say what is better, b&w or colorful version. I like both photos. Very interesting composition with reapeted columns on the FG and so impressive BG.
All the best wishes from sunny warm Ural!
macjake (55698) 2014-06-25 4:19
actually the colored version is very nice too, either one would have been a suitable post.
Sometimes people post a black and white version because the colored one is too overexposed, but not in your case at all.
So you clicked through 80 pages to see if its been posted before? wow, thats dedication :)
fine post, i like the architecture and the city on the right. good for you to present it
patpatch (1551) 2014-06-27 2:25
I like your Black and white choice here.The perpective effect of the columns is very nice.Splendid contrast between the light and the shadows of the pillars on the ground.And also ,a good composition with Granada we just can see between the columns.A lot of details.

Nice POV to emphasise the lines and perspective of the shot. Good use of light and shade and the outlook over the landscape creates another aspect of depth too.
