Color or No-Color?

Often there is no doubt in my mind that a photo should be in black-and-white, or that color is essential. Sometimes I am not so sure.

When I photographed the “last sunset of winter”, I really wanted to to bring out “winter”. Black-and-white puts the emphasis on the stark, bare branches, and says “winter” so much more. At least in my opinion. Here you may take a look and form your own view.

For street photography many prefer black-and-white over color. Here are two versions of “Saturday Afternoon in Town”. You are most welcome to let me know your thoughts.

    On the first one, I definitely prefer the black & whiter version better. It has a bit of an eerie feel to it that I like a lot.

    Now the second one is a bit tougher to choose. I like them both but am leaning a little more toward the b&w as well. Not really sure why. Hope that helps.

    Ludwig! You are so right that it can be hard to decide and in both images I like the color versions more but like both!

    Color on the first one … it’s just to spectacular to cover up.
    Black and white on the second one, I see the people better.
    Although they do work well both ways 😀

    Color on the first and black and white on the other. The question is (I think): What do you want to show in the pictures?
