When I take a photo, I’ve almost always decided already whether it’s going to be a colour or a monochrome image. I have the luxury of seeing it both ways when I edit them. I love seeing an image come together, the stunning change as it’s converted to crisp clean monochrome…
I also enjoy the contrasting views people have about coloured and monochrome images. Sometimes it’s clear that an image needs to be in black and white and I like to compare them side by side.
Today is Easter Day and I spent it with my family. When I was leaving to come home, I dashed out to their rose garden to take a few shots and I think that they work well for this comparison.
I think both photos work in colour, but I really love the unopened bud in monochrome.
I’m adding these photos to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic, come see all the wonderful photos.
I’d love to chat with you about what you think.
