I can't decide:
Oly EM5 Pan 20mm
B&W, for me.
If the yarn on the loom was lots of stripes of vivid contrasting colours, then yes, but as it is, they don't make colour the interest of the shot, so I find it more interesting in B&W for the texture.
B&W for me as well. Nice job.
My first instinct was to go with the color, but on a longer review I think B&W... it depends on where you want the focus & subject of the photo to be.
To me, the B&W makes my eye focus on the loom details like the worn crossbar that's in focus, and I am looking at it as a picture of well-used machinery at work. The color version draws me instead to the yarns and I'm more focused on the weaving action going on in the photo. However, the downside is there's a lot of bright color in that top right corner that appears relatively unrelated and somewhat distracting. If you're open to doing so, you could maybe desaturate some of that color to keep the focus on the loom & yarn.
Nice shot either way, I like both versions :smile:
I agree, B&W. The colors in the upper right corner are distracting in the color image but not in the B&W. Nice shot.
Thanks for the input. The b&w is my preference also but there are some interesting things going on with the light and subtle colors in the yarns.
Me neither. There's something good going on in both of them.
How do they print?
+1 from me :smile:
Plus this shot is all about structure imho - colors don't add much even if you de-saturate the distracting bright pink and cyan.
I'll let you know. I suspect the B&W will make a better print.
colour for me.
Liked both images, but in the end B&W for me.
B&W for me
