Original photo was developed with -3, 0 and +1 EV, then all three photographs were combined into one HDR image using easyHDR software. Last step was a conversion to b&w image with some additional processing. Photo was taken during short winter day in the Tatra Mountains. Sun was bright and low on the horizon - that produced very long shadows.

The golden hour in b&w, nice motif and great postprocessing. The color version would be over the top for me, I guess, but as b&w you have striking contrast, the winter scene becomes almost surreal looking. Love it !

B&W is always my favorite. Wonderful contrast.
