I'm pleased he did too! (I've seen you commenting on his stuff a lot, but somehow never thought to check out your gallery). Thanks so much for looking through my gallery Yes, you do seem to have a penchant for sky/water shots. You have some lovely photos & I'll be leaving some gushing comments soon
I'm really lucky. I live in a vibrant and colourful city with stunning architecture ranging from the very modern to the incredibly old and I have a range of hills on one side and the sea on the other. In addition when the cloud isn't rolling in, the natural light is fantastic.
Thanks. Yes, one wouldn't normally make a sunrise/sunset B&W (and I certainly prefer to keep my photos coloured most of the time, in spite of recent appearances to the contrary) but I think it lends a bit more drama to the photo. Not to mention giving it that "arty" look I think I originally tried it because there was some grass in the foreground that was spoiling the colour composition. Of course, that's since been cropped off, but the B&W has remained. It also enabled me to try to enhance the sky in a way that probably wouldn't have worked in colour.
