Continuing with examples from my trip to New England in July.
This one is taken very near the ones of the Light House, near Cape Elizabeth, outside Portland, Maine.
Sometimes even a blue sky can look like a storm, especially in B&W!

I´m more and more into B&W photography and to see your shot is a real pleasure to me.The treatment is perfect,but also these cloud formations help to create so captivating visual effect of the scene.

a lovely subject for your BW treatment taking full advantage of the shapes and textures of the FG rocks and the very interesting sky.
The triangular composition works very well for me.
There are a fine range of tones and good contrast.Well done.

another expressive and beautiful B&W seascape study. I love the fg texturing which counter balances the complexities of the sky so beautifully. Stunning and effective monochrome imagery!

pebbles and sky, what more do you need for a good picture?
Good B&W conversion and a balanced composition. Definitely works for me!

As usual, I'm drawn to the monochrome! It seems to have more drama than a coloured version could muster. You're right about the sky: it could easily look like a storm brewing. As I'm sure you know, in the days before digital, we used deep red filters on B/W film to darken blue skies (not to mention burning in in the darkroom). Is this the result of filtration, or PP work? Or just maybe this is a simple b/w conversion? Either way, it's a stunner. Good depth of field too from your f/9 aperture.

a fascinating way to present this peaceful coast, using the permanent and transient characteristics of the landscape and of the sky to create a stunning sense of dynamism. There's a hardly perceptible tilt to the left perceived only due to the mesmerising effect of many natural perspectives converging towards the house seen through the trees. I love the textures and the atmosphere. The lighting, the rich palette of greys and the great range of contrasts give to this quiet view a fine artistic quality. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,
