Being bored, I decided to play! This image could be taken so many different directions!

Soft, like a line drawing.
High key
Dark and brooding...

Thanks, Rob.

To me, the B&W seems to give a better focus on the large church.

What is burek?

Appreciate the encouragement, Bart. I do very little B&W. SEP sure makes it easy! LOL! The 24-120/f4 is very versatile!

I agree with you on the focus, Karen. With the color image, my eye tends to wander all thru the photo. With the B/W, however, my eye goes straight to the church. I love the image.

The B&W is fab (nice work) but I always prefer color... It has to do with
growing up in a B&W world and once I had access to color I never wanted
to go back...

Yes, I know I probably need therapy but I actually LIKE the way I am... :wink: :biggrin:

That's how I feel, Lyndee! And the image looked good as line drawing and high key also!

You sound like my husband! :tongue: I show him a B&W...and he is like "WHY?!!!!" Color is so much better!

Thanks for commenting!

I kind of like them both! The b&w is definitely more dramatic and focused on the church. I also really enjoy the colors, shapes, and textures in the color version. For me it's a win/win, Karen!

Great composition!

Glenn

Thanks, Glenn.

I think both versions are great - but at risk of being branded a heretic by my B&W friends, I like the color version better.

Heretic? NEVER, Mike! LOL! Hubby prefers the color one, too!
