    Well, for this little black duck it is (as usual) all down to the absence of that dreadful distraction — colour!

    I don't have a problem with being different & I like the second for the colour, except for the bottom 1/3 colour distraction :)

    I'm intrigued, what's up with the bottom third?

    It's just about being able to see the dirt / rocks in the water.
    Just looking at both again now I see it is a slightly tighter crop on the black & white version too which takes away part of that distraction.
    I think by being able to see what is in the water is taking me away from the sky and the reflection.
    Hope that makes sense :)

    This tends to happen when it's very shallow clear water.

    Yep, thought I don't necessarily agree. I'm ok with the foreground water details, but the "coastline" in the bottom L/H side is underexposed and has some nasty colour casts going on that I'll be looking to address next time.

    It wasn't too bad given I was just running some long exposure shots while showing a mate how to use a D-SLR (well, how to use it off auto mode anyway...). I'll reshoot properly at this location for sure though, so hopefully I'll be able to improve on these a bit next time round.

    All good as long as your happy with it that's really all that matters.
    I was just commenting on my preference of colour over B&W in this instance, but went off on a tangent.
    I have very few technical or artistic bones in my body so, I should have just left it at colour and a smiley face.

    Tangents are good, never know where they'll lea d or what information may come up, so no stress to me. Generally I know what I like and dislike in my photos though so I'm not often swayed from how I've presented them. I am interested to hear how others see or interpret them though.
