Party Abstract (in both color and b&w)
Posted By: deadwolfbones, 08-06-2009, 11:17 AM

One of those missed the shot but I still think it's great moments.

DA 35mm Ltd @ f/2.8, 0.5s exposure, ISO 200.

I love the mood in the B&W. I'm quite partial to these types of shot to begin with but I particularly like the "dancing" light and the motion blur in B&W.

I like it as well and prefer the color shot. But that is just me. I have a few of these shots where I was using a flash and it did not fire. I have started not chimping and deleteing right away just in case.

The color one is the stronger shot. The warm glow evokes that late night party atmosphere. I don't think the B&W is as effective for the setting.

I agree with you K-9, but it's funny... I've had about 50/50 go for either one. Different strokes, I guess.
