Whenever I think an image is a suitable case for B/W treatment and I remove the colour the image always seems to loose something. Thoughts appreciated here.
for me, i like the mono one, nice one

Both pictures are lovely but the black and white has a lot more impact for me.

I'm fond of B&W & the richness of each gray layers, so.... :)
But seeing both is a gift, thanks**

I would say the black and white for me too! The photo tends to come together more in black and white and is too much of a contrast in color :)

The subject is line which is adequately conveyed by the b-w, but I wouldn't consider this a good b-w candidate, as the light from overhead is somewhat neutral requiring the temperature of color to carry the frame. best...jerry

I pretty much always go for the color shot.

Oh wow!!! This is not an easy shot! I normally tend to go for colour when it comes to landscapes but the B&W in this case is beautiful... :) I like the mood and lines of the B&W! But I also like the colours...

Good evening, grouser,
Both pictures are very beautiful. In the black host knows the structures come out very well. But I choose the color photo, because color is life, and make merry. The whole world is full of colorful paints and so it should stay. If everything is still in b & w, it will look dull and lifeless. Dear greetings Christel

for me..i choose the bw, but you put them together, both pictures are great!

I like both but prefer the Black and White one...

Both pictures are stunning !

I like both very much. Maybe the b/w needs a little bot of contrast to produce more impact.

Yup I see what you mean. I do think the colour has more definition and has more 'Umph' so to speak! Having said that the B&W has a bit more of a spooky mystery about it! Amazing how the colour (or not) can change things! Great work!!

What a difficult choice! I prefer the B/W one because it's underlining the lines, but in the second one the colors are preties... :-) !!
23 Sep 2009 8:30am
It's the colour one for me in this case...not always though! Just goes to show we all have our different opinions on aminus3...and long may that continue!

beautifully shot... amazing composition... i liked the colored one...!!
23 Sep 2009 11:58am
They are both amazing, light texture, but I'm sticking with colours

Nice to know I'm not the only one who struggles with this dilemma! Here, I prefer the colour version. B&W works best for me when there is lots of contrast.
23 Sep 2009 7:20pm
The black and white version does look a little flat. The problem here is the image has a fairly flat tonal range to start with, with no real light areas. However, with stronger contrast and a bit of dodging and burning I'm convinced a very striking black and white image could be had. I wouldn't mind having a go at processing this one myself.

I like the mono version best,the small details stand out more !!

I know what you mean by losing something when removing color. However, I definitely prefer the b&w version here. I find the line patterns quite pleasing and attractive to my senses - they jumped out at me when I was browsing your recent shots. I also find that the contrast is adequate. I don't think that all b&w images necessarily must have 110% contrast. I think it's perfectly valid and sometimes preferable to have a good deal of gray as well as the extremes.
