I prefer version B to version A, since the first propeller is much more visible here. I understand fromm your note what this is a snowy pciture, but this is not very easy to tell with the B&W, it could have been desert sand (as I intially thought prior reading your note). This is probalby the risk with B&W: it is perfectly suited when contrasts and textures are clearly visible, probably a little less when color becomes necessary to make to make a differenciation between the different parts of the image.

All the best,

Default To emjleclercq: B&W

Snow can be done effectively when a B&W negative has sufficient dynamic range to work with. However, I mismetered with this one. The negatives are then with much less range in tones. However, that can even be worked around. In this particular case I opted for the "grey snow" to give a since of vagueness between snow and sand. Besides, to get pristine wite would have sacrificed tonal detail with the thinner negative or in the case of some digital shots (low range in those two.) I will be scanning some thicker 645 negs to try to pull out the snow. Reguarless, I have been thinking a gradient blue to red filter might be just the thing for this kind of shot.
