In this day and age it must be an odd thing for a man to lug a large camera to the shore of a lake and photograph a glorious sunset in black and white.

I wouldn't say it was an odd thing to photograph a glorious colour scene with B&W film; perverse, may be more accurate. :mrgreen:

Whatever your motive was, it is well liked by myself. Love the centrally placed mountain, which looks like a pyramid.

"In this day and age it must be an odd thing for a man to lug a large camera to the shore of a lake and photograph a glorious sunset in black and white."

Why? We all know that black & white provides the best colour there is?

This is yet another excellent outcome, Maris, and I thank you for sticking to your guns and sharing it.

Thanks Mick and Walter. Part of my motivation was to do a sunset without it being the usual screamin' cliche. A retreat to black and white cured that...maybe. The mountain is Mt Cooroy and I try to nick it somewhere into the frame if possible. The idea is a direct crib from Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji. Stealing ideas from the masters is a form of homage isn't it?

Yep, plus you did it with a Japanese camera to boot.

Maybe by serendipity, maybe as a nuisamce, but certainly ubiquitous is a situation in Sydney where the Centrepoint Tower (the "Bucket") is very oftem entrenched in metropolitan skylines.
