Cattle or Coal Redux - Historic B&W

Several members have expressed an interest in seeing my previous "Cattle or Coal" color photo, of an abandoned ranch or mining camp (not sure which), as a black & white. Last year I retired from a long career in history and its interpretation, in which I shot many photographs and worked with thousands of historic black & white images, so I thought I'd present the black & white redux of this one as though it was historic.

Looks authentic as an old photo of the scene Nik.

To me this B&W version has more 'authenticity', 'Nik'.
A perfect entry for the Wednesday B&W challenge!

Oh yes, having viewed both versions I think this one looks very authentic. The sky which looked washed out on account of the wildfires in the other version - here looks quite normal.
It now has a timeless quality.
Delighted to enter it in the BWC - thank you Nik !

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Nature in all her glory is my uplift on life and so is my love of photography. sandi ♪ ♫

It does make it look like one from the past Knik.
Well done.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.
