Black & white winter

500px once again

I must say that in the last few days I started to use 500px much more once again and as I reported here it looks very promising so far. A few of my photos reached more than 4000 views what's fantastic. I hope to continue using it in the next weeks and I hope it will stay the same.

Daily photo - Dolina Kościeliska

Today black & white High Dynamic Range photo was taken last winter in Dolina Kościeliska... at least this is what I think looking at the dates. But quite frankly - I'm not sure if I'm right it was taken there :) I will have to start logging GPS coordinates finally because it's not the first time I'm not sure of location.

The conditions were absolutely gorgeous - a lot of snow, quite dramatic clouds and amazing contrast. The last one made me decide to convert this photo to black & white to make this contrast even more apparent.

What I really like about this image, apart from contrast, is composition with path and stream both leading the eye towards the background. BTW when viewing a lot of my photos I noticed is that I use this composition quite a lot.
