Color or B&W
Posted By: Jimbo, 11-11-2009, 01:30 PM

I am leaning towards the B&W on the shot. Love these trees which we shot on the trip to UT with Marc. Thanks for looking and commenting. JIM

BW is more dramatic, but color is very nice ... :-) I think it depends on what you want to show.

Jim, the image is a good one but the contrast is better suited to the b&w image, IMHO. Again to my eye, if the color image were a bit brighter it might make a better color image, but there is too much rusty red color. So go with the b&w version dude!

You're going to hate me, just a little more so that you get a loop near the bottom going out of the frame.

Another vote for BW - it allows me to see the structure of the naked branches a little better. The tuft of live growth is a distraction for me - a completely denuded tree might allow the branches to stand out even more.
Overall, a very good image!
