Full steam ahead - B&W version

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 26 April 2014 in Transportation and Portfolio.

In this shot, you see the steam boat James Watt. To follow the colour version in my previous post, here is the B&W alternative. I value your comments on which version you prefer.

Colour or Black and White?

NIKON D5000 1/1000 second F/5.6 ISO 100 40 mm

Le B & W est un bon choix.

Personally for this photo I prefer the Black and White, it adapts better about the topic. Excellent contrast, I like a lot.
Have a nice day.

I did not expect to prefer the b&w for some reason . . but I sure do !!

Color is better for me as the smoke coming out is really pronounced here. Plus I loved the warm color of the wood trim.

The B&W version seems to fit the subject and the period I imagine was its heyday better. Having said that, I like the color version better.

I prefer this bw version Stephen

I think that the b&w adds to the age of the boat and the whole atmosphere. I like both, but I think I prefer the b&w the best!

Je trouve la version N&B bien plus crédible.
Excellent !

I'm really stuck, while I like the B&W the colour really shows how well this little boat is cared for, I just cant choose
