I happened to land on this image while doing some housekeeping in my Lightroom folder; I named it “Product Placement” for obvious reasons. After editing the color version I wanted to see how it would look in black and white. Both images have their merits and can stand alone well but I couldn’t quite decide which “child” was my favorite. I am leaning towards the monochrome version because of the tones and details but neither is a clear winner for me yet; then again does there have to be one 😉
So I am asking you, dear readers, to vote on which one you prefer. Please leave a comment as to why if you wish as well. I enjoy hearing from you.
Thanks – Teri
I’m in non-decision mode today…I took the easy way out and voted for “both” 🙂 (I like the vividness of the colors, but the texture of the monochrome is appealing too.)
You’re right where my head is 🙂 Thanks for voting.
I voted color but it took me a good 5 minutes to make up my mind 😊. Both are excellent so their is no wrong answer in my opinion..
Hey! How you doing, Marcus? Thanks for voting 🙂 I need to visit the DMV area again.
It depends (How’s that for an answer). If you want to focus the viewer on the Office Depot sign then definitely B&W. If not, the colors behind it are striking but it leaves me wondering what the subject matter is. That said…B&W it is! – I am so decisive.
Thanks for voting but I was aiming at the Times Square subway station sign without realizing all of the “product” signs that were around it (especially Office Depot) but then again – Times Square is just one gigantic sign anyway.
I go for the black and white but that is because It has the feel of a classic street image.
Like a 40’s scene of NY…ok minus all of the glaring lights 😉
I always like black and white images.
Well I agreed with the majority, the b/w is just eye popping.
I do believe the b&w is the winner 🙂
I don;t know how Office Depot would feel about it but I, too, think the B&W makes their sin stand out more.
Thanks. Funny thing, didn’t really notice that sign when I took the shot 🙂
