A good use of B&W for this winter's landscape. An image rich in contrast and with a great depht of field. The "silhouet" of the elemments arise very wel in the white of the snow.

The way that tractor and rake hang out on open snowy field give an impression that it was still in use last summer. But not, I guess. B&W works well. Well balanced composition where background details show above the tractor.

Good old skool tractor captured well with the rake. I would like to have one like this :-) Pleasing contrast and saturation of this b+w image.
TFS and best regards,

very nice B&W image of this old tractor in the snow. I like the contrast of dark silhouettes with the white snow. Good depth and sharpness. Well done.

I am no great fan of black and white, but this picture in the snow with the old tractor and hay turn machine, this can I well appreciate.
Very well done, TFS.

A peaceful scene enhanced by the predominance of horizontal lines in this image. This is an old tractor by the looks of things. The wheels and tires have a 1940's look to them.

Hello Larry, the b&w suits the subject really well,defining the shapes of the old tractor and the rake.
You obviously have extremely cold weather in Nebraska!
Tfs, regards Jean.

Superb graphism, tonal range, sharpness & contrast, in this splendid b&w image. The old tractor makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

cette photo procure une grande sensation de froid, de silence et aussi de calme. Une carte postale 'à l'ancienne' très agréable à regarder. La présence de ces engins agricoles sont un plus.

Nice capture of the winter landscape which is always similar to B&W when your subject is also in desaturated tone. Well composed shot to show good clarity and sharpness of the old farm.

Impressive winter view in black and white version, feel cool to see the desolate environment with all the land cover with thick snow, interesting composition to show the machine, good pov to frame it all, thanks for sharing.

A really great call to make this one The black and white, since there probably is not much other colors at the time anyway. It really bring out the contast of the snow and the rustic tractor. I like the nolstalgic quality and remeniscent of the pass. Really good composition and well presented. Thanks Larry.

TFS - Congratulations!

Wonderfully somber image of the abandoned old tractor and plow sitting on this lonely winter field.
The B&W treatment works well in this lonely Great Plains landscape.

This old tractor with the agricultural machinery makes an excellent silhouette on the snow background for this B&W shot. I also note the interesting perspective created by the two tress, leading the sight to the line of other trees in the background.
All the best,

Maybe this fine piece of old machinery deserves a better place to spend retirement days..!
I found a rusty old tractor myself, obviously having spent many years outdoor in rain and snow while a museum would be a better place...
The contrasty b&w enhances the feeling of left behind, nice work!
