p.1 #1 · Snow white? A choice...


Scott's post comparing the merits of a color or B&W version of a waterfall/snow scene prompted me to post a similar comparison from my recent WV trip. Like Scott I'd appreciate your recommendations and preferences between the two.












At Sunny's suggestion I increased contrast in the white snow and especially the tuft in the foreground to bring out a little more detail. Replacement uploaded 4/1.

Thanks,

Dave

Colour for me Dave...I find it seems to hold the detail a bit better in this one. Nice image, too!
cheers Andrew

Hi dave,
for me its the B&W that holds more detail...and if you bump the black channel a little...it would rock!

Thanks, Andrew! Sunny, what do you mean by "the black channel"! Do you mean darken the rocks, etc? Funny, I adjusted the tones a little to keep them from going (what I perceived to be) too dark. Maybe a little darker?

I like the color version. The b&w version shows a little more detail in the highlights. The color version shows more detail in the darker parts. The rendering of the reddish rocks adds extra interest to the photo (to me) and helped me decide. Both are wonderful. Thanks!

Thanks Steve and Sasha. At Sunny's suggestion I increased contrast in the snow in the B&W. But it look like the color version is still winning!

I vote for the color version also. You caught some great colors with nothing really distracting so I think it adds to the image.

I like the original (Color one). Concur with what's been said about it.

Your work is always satisfying—here, the B&W is somewhat harsh viewed next to the color version, which embodies the warmth of the "blanket" you mention in the title.
