    This is an image of the Lexus concpet in Chicago. I am curious, which does everyone like better? And if you have any comments or critiques, lets here it.

    I like how the B&W put more emphasis on the curves of the car.

    b/w for me too, the indoor lighting makes the color looks kind of weird

    I prefer the b&w version as well, it makes the reflections POP big time. The only downside I see is it makes the noise more obvious.

    the pearescent/chameleon paint job is totally wasted in B&W, BUT,

    it does add some really interesting contrast... there both interesting

    Nice shot. I would say B&W: The color distracts from the point of this shot, which I assume is the sexy curves of this car. Good conversion.

    Depends on what you are trying to show. The colour one is nice but...

    If you can clean up the noise in B&W it will be my preference.
