For many years all my photography was done in black and white. I spent many hours in the darkroom perfecting the final print. I liked monochrome for all sorts of reasons but the main one was the level of control I had over the final image. With digital photography I now have the same control over colour and I find myself doing less and less monochrome. Today as I travelled between Balla and Kiltimagh I spotted this scene which just cried out for Balck and White. The clouds were just fantastic. As I put my camera to my eye I knew I would be converting this to black and white, but I have included both colour and black and white for you, I would be interested to know which you prefer?
By Sinead: Black and white of course. There is grt drama going on here and the sky is amazing
By Tom: The black and white is more dramatic, much preferred
By kathleen.walmsley: I like the black and white. It is lovely as I love black and white photo
By Eamonn: Thats 3-0 to Black and white! Thanks for your comments
By Ann Nora: Yes, the black & white, even though the colors are beautiful in the color one, the B&W is so striking.
By omnishots: Much more impact in the b and w. The colour is charming but the b and w has uumph!
