      • Hehe this is probably the only time that I prefer the colour version! πŸ˜€ You’re right about the shapes and details, but the colour lets you know in what state the flower is in! But there’s no right or wrong answer, thanks for letting me know what you think! πŸ™‚

      • Thanks for commenting Jason, your opinion is always welcome! πŸ˜€ Plus I agree with you, normally I prefer the black and white version but this time i feel that something is missing in it, so colour for the win!

    1. I’m going to be contrarian here and say, “Both,” which is unusual in that I’m normally a big fan of B&W conversions, especially for subjects with a lot of texture and large swings in contrast. But this photo works either way because of the warm and inviting monochrome coloring of the original. I would say any preference in this case would have to come from the venue of the displayed photo β€” B&W would look good displayed in a modern setting; the color version would compliment a more traditional one.

      • That’s a very interesting point of view! I believe that a photo is only finished when it’s printed and framed, in this case the frame and mat would also make a huge difference. Thanks for commenting and I agree with you! πŸ™‚

    2. I think i like the first one more, just for the reason that this warm brown color is more easily connected with autumn and decay. The b&w might focus better on the details but kinda loses the emotion for me…
