Well, ...

  • the coloured shot. That's the way to go!

... AKA "coloured versus black and white" - first release :)

Make up your mind :thumbs:
PS. please cover one of both images with your hand while you compare it.

In this case: colour. The yellow draws the attention to the picture. Wouldn't that be they'd be both the same.

Hmmmm... I know this isn't an option :whistle: but I think combining the two would be perfect: keeping the B&W version with the yellow window from the color version. I think the building and street look better in B&W, but I like the yellow window better in color. :sneaky:

I can't vote in the app but like the color one that brings out the reflection.

Tough choice. The b/w is a classic image in which the gray tones bring out the repeating detail of the image. The color is anything but classic -- totally dominated by that chartreuse clashing against the lavender gray , to the point that the building becomes a minor character. I think which one feels "right" would depend on the context in which each is viewed.

Hmmm, I don't know if I've ever found myself disagreeing with RoseCat and JillyG and GroovyGouvy all at once before, but...

I don't think turning the image into a color splash by putting the color window in the b/w is the way to go. It'd look too artificial, I think. What makes the color version work for me is the strange color combo in what appears to be a "real" setting (captured rather than constructed, that is). Not as clear as I could be, but I hope you get the drift.

You're a brave man Ted - disagreeing with us three, using the word "captured" :eek:. :D And I love your Bluristic avatar.
