The same.... but different

2010.04.25

At 10.30am....

... and the same spot seven hours later
pixel
I’ve always found something appealing about lone trees in the landscape so when I spotted this one on my way to Rugby this morning I dived into the handily placed lay-by right opposite to take some photos. At the time (about 10.30am) it was pretty dull and overcast, with a uniformly grey sky, and it immediately struck me as being ideal for a high contrast monochrome treatment. However, by the time I returned past the same spot at 5.30 this evening the light was much better and there were some wonderfully dramatic clouds behind the tree. I thought I’d post both photos here to see which you all prefer!

busybee36 What a difference the sky and lighting make. The clouds certainly make the second look much more interesting.

wildduck Wow, that`s a difference!

SADHYA Hard to choose as they are so different. The first one graphic, the second quite romantic. I like them both, but I am a colour junkie, so it will have to be #2

Ryana The difference is amazing!

Wasichseh Wow, the first has more balance, but the sevond is more dramatic. As I love B/W I would try to change the 2nd in it.
