    I think as is...I like number 2, but if you desaturate #1 almost down to black and white...with just a little color...I think I might like that more.... I dunno....

    Like them both, but I have to go with #2. Reason being the picture has good textures, which is what i find most outstanding in the picture, the color distracts from the texture, while #2 focuses the texture and tones, making it more uniform and at the same time causing the old buildings to stand out more. Because the picture was shoot on a bright day it casts a shadow on the front of the building which lacks the color, on the 2nd picture the front becomes another tone..

    I do not think you would have gotten the same effect in #2 if the grass and trees where green, while fall colors are nice and common, going with #2 makes the picture a more unusual shot

    Anyhow really like #2

    #2 for me. It captures the feel of an old farm house.

    I really like the photo! I have an affinity for the old buildings that have been forgotten, neglected or just plain used. I agree that the texture and fall color are great.

    This next observation may be due to the brightness of my monitor or some other quirk in my computer set-up as I often feel this way about bw and sepia images that have been posted on-line. I don't think it's related to the resizing of the images as I am aware of it in my own full size images. I have even mistaken bw film scans for conversions.............so if it's something I need to adjust let me know.

    I like the feel of the second photo, but there is something missing. I can't identify it, because I've been trying to get color images to monotone while achieving the pizzaz of black and white film and I can't do it.

    Deb,

    I agree, I haven't had much luck learning to convert images to b&w or sepia etc. I just followed the tutorial for this one. Adjusted the mid tones, red up and blue down.

    The colours are quite amazing on #1 but I find them a bit too jaring. I like the textures on the second one so personally I would go with that. Maybe desaturating #1 a bit might help?
