The Friday image this week seemed to draw a few favourable comments so I thought that I would post another similar image. I have also included the colour image below, but this time I personally prefer the colour image. I can’t say why this is but the colour image seems to have more depth to it.

  1. It is easy to like the colour image, and the green is pleasing – which can’t always be said of greens! But IMO the b&w makes a sreonger visual statement.

  2. I fully agree with John Nicholson. By the way, this B&W image and a similar you presented a few days ago are very reminiscent of the front picture on the ansel Adam’s book “the print”.

  3. I too find the B&W attracts me more. I think it is because the texture appears more pronounced and the water droplets provide a more distinct contrast.

  4. All three people are right! the B&W photo are great! they really pop out and are pleasing to the eye!!
