Photo A Or Photo B

A quick Friday post, something I like to do from time to time.

Here are two images – one color, one B&W.

Which do you prefer?

In the past when I’ve done this, I’ve always been intrigued at which image gets picked.

This should be interesting.

  1. A – This image really needs the color to emphasize the shed being painted like an American flag, which to me is what makes the scene interesting, and you don’t get that with the B&W version.

    • Heh, thanks, Mark. You’re usually my staunch “B&W!” vote. 🙂

      Yes, it’s a very good point Adrian states. Which is why color is my preference as well. In this case.

  2. The building style and the painting style suggests the building is new enough to be shot in color. I think this leads the viewer to expect color. However, the half moon on the door is much easier to see in the B&W version. It’s close but I think I prefer B, the B&W.

  3. I prefer the color in this instance. In the grey scale the hut and branches seem to blend, suppose they are a similar tone.

  4. I’m going with A. The shed pops out from the background, and the flag colors become lost in the B & W version.

  5. They say that everything that doesn’t add to the photograph should be left out – even colour! But in this case, the colour adds significantly to the overall image. So, I say colour.

  6. Color for me, although I will say, had your black and white treatment been contrasty enough to bring out the American flag in the shed, it might have been interesting too…
