    Really good Max yes, you should frame the pic - probably the black & white one.

    I like the colour one best, but that's probably because I remember when everything was B & W, including dreams.

    I know I'm going to get a lot of stick for this, but I can't understand the attraction for monochrome.
    I like to capture images as I see them, and get a true record of the subject.

    Monochrome?

    Liking shooting pictures In RAW mode though It's more flexible when photo shopping.

    It's a digital version of a negative so I can see how It's more flexible to editing.

    Going to St Barnabas soon to get a night shot since It's lit up.

    Hi Philip

    Don't you think black and white can lend a certain mood to some pictures? Especially with a lot of light and dark, shadows etc.

    I'm not going to get into a detailed discussion, Chris, because it's a dangerous subject.
    It's all down to what the photographer wants, of course, but (and it's only my impression) a lot of people use B & W now because they think it's 'arty'.

    Max, please, I don't mean you.
    You're obviously learning much more than I ever knew (or want to know) about digital photography.

    And Chris, I know you're going to say that B & W was very popular when film was the norm.
    But I suspect that's because B & W processing was quite easy to learn to do (I even learnt it myself).

    I have seen only one or two colour photos of cinemas from the 1930s and 1940s when they used to be ablaze with neon, and it's such a pity that colour wasn't used more often.

    I could refer you all to a colour photo of 1961 that was universally well-liked on this forum.
    Why?
    Mainly because it was so rare for its time, but also because people realised that Liverpool was always colourful, but B & W photography portrays things differently (and dare I say drably) from what they are.
    Which is the effect some photographers want.
    So we've come full circle.

    I wasn't expecting to give such a long answer.

    I think the back and white one is better

    I think so too.

    I'll probably snap It again anyway but I'll keep It on my flickr showing I'm learning to use RAW like I did with one of my HDR's.

    I agree with Chris that B&W can work well with lots of shadows, but on the whole I'm not a fan. Often B&W shots look a bit plain to me, and I don't really see the point unless you're shooting film and developing it yourself. As such, I prefer the colour version of the picture up there.
