    I'd like to make a large print of this image but I can't decide if I should go color or B&W. What do you think?..

    Color 100%. The sky and its reflection in the water loses all of its pop in B&W

    I took the liberty of making a few adjustments... I hope that's ok with you!

    color all the way. with that kind of shot, all the beautiful color shouldnt be lost. the way you did the sky is amazing.

    thanks for the replys! Decent edit K8, that version actually looks alot like the version currently in my PS3 but the whole 'upload' process seems to squeeze the life out of it (and all my photos).

    I suppose over-burning/dodging and over-saturating will help it through the upload process, I just don't like to do that(i fear somewhere on someones monitor it will look over done). Too bad the internet is such a poor way to represent your photos.

    Plus when I shoot landscapes my goal is to recreate the scene, and the real world just isn't that saturated.

    Thanks again for the input guys and gals, much appreciated!

    JC
