I want to enlarge a picture for my wall collection. Do you guys like the color version or the Black and white version. There was very little PP except for some minor fill light adjustment and the bw conversion.

Any Critiques?

Black And White

I am normally a color guy, but I think this one looks better in black and white.

I like the B&W...gives it that old western feel.

I agree, and think surfs is right on. Also, the horses being in shadow is downplayed in the B&W.

I vote: BW. It has a rustic crispness ( is that even a word?) that really comes through.

Black and white. If you were to enlarge in color depending on pixals you used wouldnt it get muddy looking or not as clear. Black and white I think would be easier to enlarge.

I dont know thats why im asking.

Eitherway. I like the black and white same reasons stated above

color really doesn't add a whole lot....something wrong with the contrast or something...

I was looking at the color again after reading that last post and I have decided to repost a differetent pic in color and see what you guys think of that one. I may have goofed up the color a little bit.

I still like the B&W version best as well. However if you're looking for something different, you could try doing most of the picture in B/W and then using a faded green for the scrubby bushes - I don't know how to do that, I'm sure it's a photoshop process. It would give you a completely different look. I think it's a technique that can be overdone, but it might be worth a try. That or a sepia tone might be interesting too - Just a thought - very nice photo though, no matter how you print it, the composition is excellent!

BTW - how DID you get those horses to line up like that????

I didn't have to line them up. They are wild and I just happened to look up and boom there they were hanging out on top of the hill. These wild mustangs roam freely through out the park.

I'll also agree with everyone and go with the black and white. Beautiful picture by the way!

looking at the pictures all over again...the BW still....the second look makes me realize that it's not just the color contrasts as much as it is what you notice with the BW....take a look at the two...when I tried to figure out what was so different I realized that with the BW you can notice how the horses from the top of the hill down to the bottom line up in the so called "pecking order" of things.....which you can understand better with the BW which just adds another facet to the photo...just something I noticed which added to my original thinking of the BW being a better photo

Of the two shown, I agree with the B&W, but Jackie may be on to something with a sepia tone.

My first thought of the B/W was old time cowboy movies, Geronimo, John Wayne, Indian ponies, all those great Saturdays spent at the movies.
