Church Door – Monochrome

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.  Matthew 18:20

I loved the image of this church door and light so much I decided to see how it would look in black and white since monochrome is so wonderful with architecture.  I’m hard pressed to chose a favorite as both have their merits.  So tell me, which one do you prefer and why?  The color version featured here or today’s monochrome one.

Thank you and have a blessed Sunday.

                  Peace be unto you

    Although I usually respond more to the texture of black and white, I actually prefer the original image — the light creates such warmth on the door and architecture in the original. It looks colder in the black and white. (But if I didn’t have that original to compare it to, I’d really like this b&w one!)

  2. I agree with Cindi on all her points. It’s still a nice shot, but the color in the other shot adds something. I struggle with whether to use B&W or color on some shots.

    • Sometimes it just is abundantly obvious and then there are times when it could go either way. Personal preference in the end. But I do see everyone’s point with this image. Thanks

    I guess I’ll be different and say I prefer the B&W image. There’s something about it that feels more historic. Beautiful either way though.

  4. Both is good quality photos with really nice colour composition. However, similar to Ingrid, I like the BW version for similar reason 🙂

  5. I think I like the color better. There are so many different colors and textures.

    Great photos. I like the colour one better, because as Cindi said, the light creates a nice soft glow, which is missing in B&W

  7. Fascinating photography,there is a certain magic in black and white photo .Regards
