Monochrome Madness 2 – 2

So for the second week of the new MM year I have a photo I posted last Friday in my Friday Foto.  It was the colour version.

It had a very eerie feel and I wondered what it would look like in black and white and really quite liked it.  I thought it looked more isolated than the colour one.  I’d be interested to know what you think?

  1. I loved the colour best Karen, just adds a little bit more emphasis on the empty with the soft shine from the lamp. Bu even in B & W your photography skill shine 🙂


  2. I’ve come to the realization, Kaz, that the beauty of a great photo is that it works both in color AND in B&W. Oftentimes when I begin post on a photo I’m unsure of, I’ll look at it in monochrome. If it doesn’t have potential there, I know it’s not a strong photo. At least that’s been my experience.

    Your photo works beautifully both in color and B&W because of all the beautiful tones you captured. That along with the stunning composition makes this an absolute stunner. I would be hard pressed to pick my favorite treatment. Awesome!

  3. Both images are great, but I much prefer the black and white, it has far more depth and shows the softened spray of the water better.


  4. Both are beautiful. This B&W really stands out! Beautiful water flow.


  5. I agree with Stacy.
    The Colour was gorgeous and the b&w is simply stunning!


  6. the image is beautiful, colour simplifies the composition, but in this case the contrast between the blue and yellow is stunning. Lucky you, you can have both!

  7. I love this monochrome version…definitely more depth, and you really notice the softness of the water


  8. I’m not a big fan of black and white photography since the world is in color. Notable exceptions are when I’m taking pictures of old railroad steam engines which were usually all black.

  9. Dreamy! Interesting contrast between the ethereal foreground and the almost clear/crisp skies.

  11. It is hard to pick one. But you press me, I have to say the colored one did more for me.
