Good Morning Everyone,
This is a shot taken at Silverdale, looking across Morecambe Bay, to what is probably Grange, in the far distance.
As you can see, the tide goes out a long way, leaving vast stretches of wet, rippled sand.
Because this is a westerly facing beach, at this time of the day, to capture the wet sand, the shots have to be contre jour.
I liked the effect in black and white since the natural colours were very limited. I will add the colour version as a w/s.
Have a great day, Bev :-)

le choix du noir et blanc avec un tel cadrage est très agréable, (de plus les reflets de lumière dans l'objectif y sont plus discrets)
merci de nous avoir aussi présenté la couleur
the choice of black and white with such a framing is very nice, (and the light reflections in the lens are more discrete)
thank you for also presented the color, nice too

I compared the images side by side and can see how those who prefer coloured images over B&W might prefer that the blue parts of the sky are retained. To me though, the image is quite striking in B&W with the variation in the silvery light and shadows playing across the rippled mudflats.The lens flare is hardly noticeable in B&W.
If you want to experiment further to see how the colours in the image impact on the final B&W interpretation I suggest playing with the intensity of the blue channel to your taste(if you have not already tried that).

A splendid capture from Morecambe Bay, which is famous for its shifting and treacherous sands and superb sunsets. I like this composition very much, perfectly framed and ideally exposed to capture all this fascinating patterns in the wet sand. Excellent conversion to black and white, which has resulted in an image that is both attractive and dramatic.

nice and effective monochrome treatment this. It has a much more dreamy and almost wistful atmosphere about it which is not so palpable in the colour original. Clever idea and beautifully arty presentation. Like it!

Beautiful composition and certainly the black and white treatment brings out the best in the sense of drama and atmosphere. You managed to get the best details in spite of the difficult light condition. Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Have a nice evening.

I remember this scenery from your previous post but I think this one is even more beautiful due to the light and the format. Black and white works excellently. My compliments!

Attractive vertical view of Morecambe Bay with the sun's rays appropriate for the name "Silverdale", appearing like silver across water waves, and instead the patterns of sand ripples.
PS: Your workshop crop of my Lake Mary in winter came out well. Being a big fan of cropping, I had thought about doing it. And I could have leveled out the crooked water line at the same time.

A very attractive picture, I have also compared the two versions and it is hard to say which one I prefer. I think the colour version is probably what I would have chosen myself. But a very pleasant and fine view with the sun crating a silvery effect in the water here at Silverdale.

Bev, this is a picture for romantic dreamers...and I am one of them!! great choice to use black and white for your composition...the horizon blending with the sky is simply very beautiful!!

good morning Beverly,
The name of this place suggest and justify a B&W format... the silver tones well rendered on Silverdale shores.
I like this composed view out to sea, sun-rays play above water's.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

That's a curious point of view,like a night scenery.The texture of the wet sand is so impressive.A very strong effect.That seems to be a moon scenery.
I like this strange atmosphere very much.
