It's a very nice picture.

I'm not a huge fan of landscapes in BW because the point of landscapes is to see the color. It does work here however with the path.

Well, I'm glad you like it. I'm going to have to disagree with you though when you say "the point of landscapes is to see the color." That may be the way you see it, but there is no single "point" to any type of art, and saying there is does nothing more than closing yourself off to the actual intentions behind the work. Personally, I find that black and white gives my pictures a certain feel that wouldn't be the same if I were to use color film. It's also a pretty good reflection of my personality and how I see the world, if that makes sense. Anyway, I'm sure this is starting to sound pretentious, so I'll just leave it at that. Since it's past midnight here, I'll also post today's picture.

This one is wonderful.

I understand, and didn't mean to insult your intentions. When I do landscapes I like them in color, that's all.

That's a shame. I love to see the world in color, although are certainly days when B&W do just fine

Yeah that's true. Nice pic by the way. ( refering to the one where the path goes straight back in to the trees. ) Now if that was a set of railroad tracks going off in the woods that'd be really cool. I'd use that as a wallpaper.

Just want to say I'm a fan of landscape as it gives me a sense of being closer to reality in an artistic way.

Hm, I can try that. There's some railroad tracks about a mile from where I live. Next time the sky is good, I'll go out there and take a couple photos.
