Related 60 thoughts on “Colour vs Black & White” Tough choice, I can’t decide either. =) LikeLike Reply Thanks for commenting! 😀 Hmmm I really like both, but if I reeeeeally had to decide, I’d choose the B&W! 🙂 LikeLike Reply I’m a big fan of black and white too. LikeLike Reply So am I, I think it makes photos much more dramatic and mysterious, most of the time! 😀 LikeLike Reply Black and white for me!! Very good shot LikeLike Reply I think I’m starting to like the B&W version more as well! Thanks a lot John! 😀 LikeLike Reply No problem. I love black and white photography LikeLike Reply So do I, I think black and white is much more dramatic than colour 🙂 LikeLike Reply I agree. You can make some nice adjustments in black and white to really make the picture more dramatic and give it a nice effect. LikeLike Yes that’s true! The most interesting thing about black and white, in my opinion, is that it can turn a completely normal photo into something much more expressive and interesting 🙂 But not everyone agrees with us! 😀 LikeLike That is what makes art, art. You can do what you want with your creation and what others think about it really shouldn’t matter. If people like it, awesome. If they don’t, awesome. It is what makes us individuals. Good stuff. LikeLike Yes I agree 110% with you! 😀 Do you think that every photograph is art? LikeLike When a person is being serious about their craft and they are trying their best to be creative, then I believe every photograph is art. It’s an art form in my opinion. And you? LikeLike I agree with you, and Photography is definitely an art form! LikeLike Cool. It’s been nice chatting with you LikeLike You too John! Feel free to drop by anytime you want! 🙂 LikeLike I most certainly will. You too LikeLike Will do! 😀 LikeLike Both are awesome, crunchy (or crispy maybe…) ! 😎 LikeLike Reply Hehe thanks a lot! 😎 Can’t decide either Meho? 😀 LikeLike Reply If I must make a choice, I going with the colored one. That red is so amazing. It goes from red to black. This is what I call « crunchy » 😎 BUT… This black and white is the holy perfection! LikeLike Reply I see, so you like both but you’d choose the colored one, right? 😀 “Holy perfection” That’s such a great compliment, thank you very much!! 😀 LikeLike Reply Yep! That’s right Diogo! LikeLike Ah alright, thanks a lot as always Meho! 😀 LikeLike In this case I think I prefer the color version because of the edit you did. I really like to see the different tones of pink and purple in the rose, it turned out more dramatic than the B&W one. LikeLike Reply That’s an interesting point of view, I’m glad to know that someone prefers the color version! Thank you for your opinion Ines, I appreciate it! 😀 LikeLike Reply Both are beautiful phots but I like the B&W a bit more. LikeLike Reply Thank you very much Robin, I agree with you 😀 LikeLike Reply I would prefer the B/W. It is more classy. Visit my blog here. LikeLike Reply I agree with you, thanks! 😀 LikeLike Reply Took a tip from you and mentioned you in a post 🙂 See here. LikeLike Reply Cool, i’m gonna take a look! 😀 LikeLike Reply Normally I like to see the color in a flower but with this one, given the age of the bloom, the B&W increases the contrast interest LikeLike Reply Thanks for commenting! 😀 So if the flower wasn’t old you’d prefer the colour version? 🙂 That’s interesting, so in this case the subject determines whether you prefer the colour or the black and white version! LikeLike Reply Tough call. If I had to choose, I might give the colour the edge. In this case, I think the flower benefits from that little bit of colour to help it stand out from the background. Fortunately, you’ve got both, so you don’t have to choose. 8^) LikeLike Reply Thanks for commenting! I have to agree with you, although i prefer the b/w version, I agree that the colour version makes the rose stand out of the background! 🙂 Haha you’re right, thank you! 😀 LikeLike Reply My vote is the color one. This rose is aweseome! Thank you! xx Amy LikeLike Reply Thanks for your opinion Amy! It is, isn’t it?? i’m glad you like it! 😀 LikeLike Reply No like, Diogo, LOVE. My Heart always falls in Love every time I see a Rose. (smiling) xx LikeLike Reply hehe I’m glad you love it!! Why is that? 😀 LikeLike Reply OH, probably because you LOVE Roses too. Tee hee. xx LikeLike Hehe yes I do! Hugs 😀 LikeLike 🌹💞🌹 LikeLike Oh what is that? I only see three squares.. 😦 LikeLike Really?? How disappointing! It is (rose) (two hearts entwined) (rose). Thank you for telling me that because I use these all the time. Now I am wondering how many people haven’t seen my pretty roses and hearts from my iPad. (((HUGS))) Amy LikeLike Aww that’s cute! 😀 I have seen these squares everywhere and had no idea where they came from lol Maybe we need some sort of plug-in to see them? Hugs! :3 LikeLike I think if you are on a computer using Windows, the emoticons from an iPad you won’t see. I know when I use my laptop which has Windows, I see the same thing. The squares. Different operating systems, that is all. Too bad they are not more user friendly. (smile) (((HUGS))) back to you! Amy LikeLike Ah yes that makes sense! They really should be more user friendly 😦 Hehe it’s okay! 🙂 LikeLike I thinks the B/W is more expressive. LikeLike Reply I agree with you Eliza! 🙂 Thanks for commenting! LikeLike Reply I love both… But if I had to chose I’d go wit the color– You are phenomenally talented!!! And thank you for sharing your gifts! LikeLike Reply Interesting! Why would you choose the color version? 😀 Thank you very much really, and it’s my pleasure! ^^ LikeLike Reply hmm they both are beautiful. but the black and white looks better. to me its like a story…you understand, hehe LikeLike Reply Thanks for commenting! Yes I agree with you! 😀 LikeLike Reply Wow. Both are quite beautiful, elegant, and almost surreal. Yet as much as I can love black and white work done well, which yours is, I take the color because it evokes passion, love, desire, all those things we subconsciously connect to the heart and feelings? Thanks for the exercise… my brain and heart feel stretched because of you! LikeLike Reply Thank you very much for commenting, that’s a very good point! Red is a strong colour with a lot of emotions attached to it so I agree that the colour version evokes different feelings, like the ones you said! 😀 Hehe thank you!! 😀 LikeLike Reply you’re welcomed. Glad to find your post and take the ‘test’! LikeLike Reply I like them both; I think the black & white has a more timeless feel to it, but in this instance I think I’m going to vote colour for my favourite 🙂 LikeLike Reply Haha one more for the colour then! 😀 But i’m glad to know you like them both! Thank you very much Jenny! 😀 LikeLike Reply Pingback: Diogo Pereira (diogo_pereira) | Pearltrees What do you think? Let's hear it! :) Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
