Personally, I don't getthe whole B&W love affair. Sure it was cool 100 years ago when that was all you had, but c'mon, move into the 1960's will ya? We have color now, ya know? I tend to like color, and lots of it, in my pictures. The brighter the better.

So with that said, I hope this fits the challenge, because itreally was a "challenge" to me to wreck mypic like this, and I'm still not sure that I like the effects it had. But hey, that's why this isthe weekly photo "challenge" right?

Good job, nice patterns in the tree lines and roads. I like the top best myself.

Best regards,

Mag

well, although color is very nice, and makes images pop better than b/w (in most cases)

b/w shows texture, patterns, lines, and form better than color...

it usually gives an 'arty' feel to it too

i like the crop here, the lines in the trees, and the flow of the hills

nice shot

Vito

I get it. I've used black and white before myself, but usually on the background of an image, with the foreground or subject in color, or when I'm trying to make the picture look old. Personally, I just find B&W to be boring. But hey, I'm not exactly the artsy type either.

true, i can see how it would be boring :-p
it's just a matter of taste
b/w backgrounds add to the subjects 'popiness'
lol
