    I posted a b&w pano taken with a drone in the Landscape forum, here's one shot with my Sony A7r2.

    This scene suits B&W quite well. Definitely a high water flow this time of year.

    Very nice, great clouds and lots of water. It's usually muddy in early spring but looks great here.

    This looks great Jim. The B&W definitely helps make the sky look very moody and helps bring some emotion to the image.

    That's a bold statement, Jim. Nice BW. I'll go check out your other one.

    Very nice POV and processing. I'd probably invest a little cloning time in the lower left corner (or maybe just darken it some) to hide the encroaching foliage.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. Ben, the water looked like chocolate milk, so the b&w helps hide that. Kyle, I totally agree on the grass - I used the adjustment brush to do quite a bit of darkening in ACR, but could use a bit more off the highlights.
