Updated: Re-visiting an old Friend - 3rd Option!

Discussion in 'People' started by Firestorm_westy, Jul 21, 2008.

  1. Hi all,

    You know what it is like when you get something new (in my case, it was the 18-200vr).

    It is such a good 'walkabout lens' that I became a little lazy and pretty much left it on the D300.

    Well, yesterday I got the 70-200vr out again, as I realised I hadn't used it on the D300 yet... I am glad I did; What a cracker of a lens it is!

    Now, as usual, my only problem is one that you guys need to solve for me... Print and frame the colour or the B&W?!

    Any critics more than welcome - I WANT to improve.

    Paul

  14. Most definitely color! I like the other too, but her expression in the color one seals it for me.

    Another one for Color here. Beautiful shot. I like the warm tone brings out the red hair.

    The color one is just amazing..
     
  17. I'm gonna vote for a BW conversion of the first one. I think her expression is better in that shot.
    To me it is a shame the BG is so close to her hair color.

    Either way you go ... and why not print 'em both ways anyway ... You've got a couple of very nice portraits there.

    I'd like to see both shots both ways. I like the expression better in the color but I really like the b/w look too. She's just such a cutie you can't help but smile at them.
     
  19. My thoughts exactly. As a bonus, the jersey/eyes and hair/background are complementary. Both images are excellent.
     
  20. Here is a B&W of the first image, as you suggested...

    I think I may have the best of both here...

    What do you think?
