The Isle of Avalon (colour)

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 24 October 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Slightly different view of Glastonbury and in colour this time

Canon EOS 60D 1/500 second F/11.0 ISO 100 128 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Lovely. A small difference and yet a big one. Yesterday's seemed very dramatic, while here I sense tranquility.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Color adds more than it takes away with this pair, I think. In part, that's because you have some beautiful natural colors in this.

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

Fits the same comments as yesterday's image. If someone were to ask I would probably say that it was a black and white version better.

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Just as good in colour, I can nearly always distinguish a favourite between colour and b&w but in this case I can't they both have parts I love. I would happily hang either on my wall.
