Photo of the Week #17 : Mountains near Qindao

Taken at Laoshen near Qindao, this is a picture I did a bit of adjustment on

When I looked at the RAW picture it looked a bit dull. The adjustment is simple, a bit of highlight and shadow adjustment followed by contrast adjustment via Levels.

No sharpening, just reduced the size of the image to make it suitable for the blog.

Laoshan Lake and mountains

A lake due to a dam, Laoshan Mountains

As an experiment I made a black and white version, and I actually like that one, too.

Laoshan Lake B/W

Laoshan : Lake and mountains, B/W.

I think that both pictures are good.
Which one do *you* like best ?
