Pick a Pic

Here are two versions of the same scene (taken in Canada's Banff National Park), one in color and one B&W. It's a good illustration of the different feeling evoked by each type. Yesterday I liked the B&W better, today the color.

K beat me to the punch. Normally I like black and white but the color in this works for me.

How about a combo effect? Grayscale the photo, but keep the water, boat and shed in color.

I like the color. It makes me feel hope. It looks like it's alive. It encourages me to think about tomorrow.

The B & W speaks to yesteryear and a time gone by, which breaks my heart - because I hope a place like that exists forever.

I like them both... they are both beautiful. But I think I like the black and white one more. :]
