    I shot this one with intentions of converting to bw, but I was happier with the color version.

    This one looks like you get colours in your area of the world that we here can only dream of here, or that can only be found in Mediterranean areas here in Europe, which is why many artists (painters) moved themselves to Itay or elsewhere on the Mediterranean Sea in their times, to capture those colours.

    Such clarity in the air, no haze even obscuring a good view onto the mountains in the background, and then the colour of the grass as opposed to the wood, the rust on the tin roofs, the blue of the sky... it would be nice to see a sharply contrasted (I think that makes itself for also the colour version has these nicely sharp contrasts) black and white version for comparison, but I very much like this as it is!!!

    Hmmmm. I would not have expected the amount of loss in detail in the b+w conversion. The mountains and also the roofs did lose quite much. Hm-hm-hm... not sure now.
    Or rather:
    Quite sure that the colour version (still) is the better of the two :D.

    I think the color version ROCKS! I love the rust on the barns in conjunction with the red mountains - I did some bw conversions of my own to this image and it doesn't look to bad, if you would like me to post here I could, however I still like the color better.

    excellent work!!

    Go for it! I've done like 4 or 5 more conversions. I'm just not happy with the really high contrast like the one above. I had to tone it down abit to keep the details.

    OK Jake here is my BW attempt; I think your color version is the best!

    Looks good :thumbsup: I have one very similar. But I agree, I think color works best for this one.
