row houses near the capital:
can't decide on which i like best:
is it supposed to be slightly non-level? because i think it is. but i love the colors
I prefer the colored on. The tones don't differe enough to make the B&W dramatic, but the colored one is bright and varying. That's a pretty neat set of houses.
Not much of a choice for me The colors add so much to this shot.
JonMikal, if I were you, I'd be as undecided. The colour version definitely lives by the vibrancy (is that an existing noun?) of the colours, no doubt, and therefore doesn't require as much sky as there is right now.
But the strongly contrasted b+w has a right to exist, too, and the lack of colours is compensated by the contrasts and the very well worked out - and in this case essential - dramatic sky. I wonder how you achieved it... it has a tendency to look fake, though it isn't, I can tell... These two versions make me think a lot, too, and it's hard to tell which one's the better of the two.
The coloured picture is good, but the B&W is sooo much better. It has more character....Humm can't find the right word right now.
Just when I thought I've seen your best.................Man, you are good!! Ever thought of doing a D.C. collage? I'd buy it!
Great stuff man!
I would have framed the pic with a little less sky and more ground level. All in all, they're great pics, as usual...
railman - you're right, but i would still be photoshopping cars, fences, etc. out. i was going for a clean look. i should probably search for another location; i really liked the color and feel of these units.
regarding the tilt; these were severly distorted and i played with it is PS forever to straighten it and realize it's not plum and square. i think i'll search for another site reshoot this sometime.
thanks again for your comments!
Hmm, both are great photos :thumbup: . Of course I like the b&w but you have captured the light and colours so well in the second that I seem to like the colour version a tad more.
Sounds like we are in for a treat.
Get at it!
