Black and white or color…that is the question

Building backsides

I thought I would prefer this shot in black and white. And I do like the textures.

Building backsides color

But when I went back and looked at the original again I preferred the color version. Each one highlights something different. I’ll let you decide for yourself.

  1. I like them both. But if forced to pick one, I’d go with the color version. The red and rust pops of color tip the scale for me.

  2. I think both have their fine points…it’s all about what a person sees in a photo and sometimes I’m attracted to the b&w and other times to color. These structures must be near water as it appears they are built up off the ground.

  3. You are right about the textures; black and white is such a classic way of showing these differences. Normally I tend to prefer colour, but I certainly do like the top photo.
