I guess that all photographers have been staring at the screen and wondering this more then ones in their career. As I almost exclusively shoot landscape photography I've fond my self wondering more then ones which is best monochrome or color.
You are taught that contrasty photos are best suited for black and white, but sometimes I think that you don't need a picture containing mega contrast to make a nice monochrome picture. Like the one beneath you have contrast in some areas and some flat areas. Sometimes it's very hard to decide on which way to go. In the end I went with the color one because I just love the orange/yellow shine from the rising sun behind the farm.
On one hand I'm often going for the colorful sunset, autumn leafs, blue water etc, on the other hand I think that a monochrome perhaps have a longer life-span if you make a print, hanging it on a wall.
As always the photo is available in better rez on my web page larssonsphoto.com since I went for the color one that's the one on my page. But please tell me in the comment field what you think, monochrome ore color?
Wish you all a great week
