Hi, It looks good in either format, but i do like black and white and intend to do more myself.
I have an R72 Hoya infrared filter which can give unusual effects, will post some on my blog

I just uploaded an infrared picture taken with the R72 filter and the same pic processed to black and white, to my blog

I was just looking at your B&W os San Fran.... did you notice the pigeons on the roof?
Also that street light, is the old type that causes light polution, they also waste power, the new design uses less power and does a better job of lighting the road and reduces glare, just my little rant.

I am more fond of the black and white...but that's very "me". I think the tonal range of the original lends itself to black and white.

Bike messengers are insane in NY. Are they as bad there?

Kris said...

personally, I think bikes look so much better in mono.

I guess I am the exception..I prefer the metallic tones. However, I think it would depend on where the photo was used. In some instances, black and white would be more dramatic.

You know, I have to say that after much deliberation, I also like the metallic tones of the color picture, as well as how the green pole stands sedately in the center (it already has a lot of black and white tones to it--don't you think?)

I prefer B&W. But that's pretty much the way I am....

You know, I just can't make up my mind... The B&W is very strong, but the color rendition is also very good... Years ago I'm sure I would have favored the B&W, but as I said, I just can't make up my mind...

The Black and White!

Annie said...

I think your going to have a pretty even split here in terms of preference. I vote for the color.

Faye Pekas said...

Black and white I think. Both are good.

~tanty~ said...

Just seen both pictures and I think I like the color one better :)

Nathalie said...

Very interesting comment by Outhouse capital of canada about energy saving street lights. Good point!
After much hesitation, I'll go Black and white

rennie said...

I prefer coloured one. It drives more attention to detail IMHO.

John Roberts said...

I have to vote color on this one - not sure why.

Black and white for me. It brings out the lines in the pic.

One more vote for the black&white one ;)

Ben said...

I was thinking which one is better since yesterday. Honestly, I can not decide either. If I had to choose, I will pick a colour one.

Pequete said...

I prefer the colour one. Which is curious, because I usually enjoy b&w pictures. In this case, I like the contrast between the mostly grey tones (the wheels of the bycicle and the background in general) and the soft colours of the coloured part of the bikes (don't know their names...)
