Do you have a preference for color, or more drawn to black & white images? I’ve known people who will constantly prefer one over the other for the most part.
Then there are others who will claim that it depends on a photo-by-photo basis.
It’s not that easy for me. If you’ll look through my galleries you’ll often see that I’ll do up to four or five different treatments of an image. Some color, some b&w and other variations of both. I’ll agree that some photos really have one style that might fit them best; most effectively convey the feel of the image, of the capture.
Here are two versions of the same image. The difference is obvious – one color, one b&w. Two me the different treatments convey two different images, two different feelings about each one. I like them both.
Take a look at each one. Does the image work better in color or b&w?
To me I like the warmth that the color provides in that image. On the other hand I like the crisp clean image of the b&w… almost provides kind of a Jackie O-ish nostalgia (regardless of the pose).
How About You?
I’m really curious? Which one do you like better? And Why? (and please remember to keep your comments G rated :-))
