Wow another week goes by in a flash. Its now Week 24.
This weeks entry into Leanne Cole & Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness happens to coincide with my 100th post. I feel like cracking the champagne! All cards and flowers welcome.
To celebrate in a somewhat low key fashion I thought I’d do this a little different.
This week I have decided to put in both the B&W photo as well as the colour so you can see for yourselves which is better and why. Not all photos look better in black and white (and vice versa) and sometimes you can experiment with each photo to see but also there are times when, as you take the photo, you have black and white in mind and know it will look better. I have also tackled doing a poll for the very first time so please if you have time could you take it for a test run!
This black and white photo was taken in the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney. Anyone who follows my blog will know that I have taken quite a few pictures here and totally love its different aspects. Whilst mainly taking the architecture, this time when walking past a café inside the building I was struck by the strong black and white tiles and almost French appeal of this café. With the two lights shining down I felt it might be a good black and white photo for this weeks challenge.
Personally I think the colour one has too many distractions and the black and white one has a bit more appeal. Everything stands out more.
What do you think?
