B-W Versus Color
Posted By: Jimbo, 07-15-2010, 10:25 PM

Played around with this shot in both B&W and Color. I am leaning towards the B&W. Cheers JIM

I like the B&W from start to finish, but then I've always been a bit biased on the side of B&W...especially for landscapes and trees. Dead trees just make some great pictures. I'm always looking for a good dead tree to shoot.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. JIM

one is to pick the color version, I wonder if that is almost like arguing against Ansel Adams .

I haqve read more about Adama then any other photographer. Very interesting guy. JIM

like the final B&W version best - the tree & rocks stand-out against the foliage; whereas with the first ones they blended together more. The colour stood out well too. Very nice.
Thank you. JIM

Hey buddy - I like the modified B&W very much. However, for some reason, your first B&W looks more "defined" than the first time I saw it (maybe because I mentally separated the dead tree after my first view). In any event, whether in color or B&W, it's a helluva nice photo.
