Usually I prefer color. I've heard it said that film photography did black and white better, but digital photography does color better. Your mileage may vary, of course, and I'm no expert at film photography, but the fact is, I see in color.
And so usually I like color better, and I don't even think about black and white.
But I was playing in Lightroom and I happened to turn these flower shots into black and white and something about them grabbed me.
Of course, I like the color too.
For me, the black and white feels completely different. Colder, lonelier maybe, but no less beautiful for all of that. And the color is just kind of flaunting.
Technically this last shot isn't one to write home about, but I'm also enjoying it right now.
So which do you prefer? Black and white, or color?
