Here are two images I processed in both color and black and white. Which do you prefer and why?
There are aspects of both that I like, but I think I am leaning toward mono for these subjects.
I think in the first, the black and white really helps enhance the different textures, from the weathered wood and the rhyolite emerging from the desert mountains and even the threatening skies.
In the chicken coop, I get a keener sense of the light streaming through the cracks in the ramshackle ceiling and walls.
What do you think?
