I would normally say that I think this shot really lends itself to B&W, but, the colur one is the one I prefer now that I see them side by side. A great shot regardless!

Hi Rinda! I prefer the color picture, it sure is a beautiful photo!

Kes said...

Like Amy - I expected to like the b&w better - but the colour shot is amazing!

The colour shot has a sepia appearance and therefore more enchanting, it draws you into its depths entices you to want to enter. The b&w seems to have lost the detail and is more an overall grey.

For me the b&w one is stark and a little eerie; the colour one is warm and inviting - so I guess which I prefer depends on what it's being used for.

For me, it's a toss-up! I like both of them for different reasons, but the previous comments sum up the emotions the two photographs evoke, so I think you'd choose based on what you wanted to communicate.

I like them both....though the b + w definately has a spooky feel to it.

the black and white shot looks like something from a fairy tale. and that's where enchanted forests are, aren't they? :-)

Both are fabulous, but I prefer the first one. It carries more magic for me, something mysterious.
