Here's a picture I took from the river just down the street from my house. I was playing around with motion and still pictures.

Sergeant,

Lovely shot of the moving stream. I would be curious to see if the color version is even more eye appealing.

Aloha

Sargeant,

Like everyone else said so far the color version is more appealing than the B/W. My personal rationale is that the contrast in the B/W isn't strong enough to capture the nuances of the flowing stream. These are quite obvious in the color version whcih thus makes it more appealing.

Aloha and mahalo

Very nice shot, Sergeant. I like B&W photography but it caneasily lookdull if missing strong elements such as contrast, shadows, depth and texture. Your waterpicture is lovely and camera settings are good (although I think you could benefit from a slower shutter speedto emphasize the water effect). However, it lacks some of the elements that create impact in B&W. Nevertheless, I think you did a fine job and I really like the color version.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I wasn't sure if I should the post the BW or the colour, but it turns out everyone likes the colour version. I would have used a longer shutter speed, but I didn't havea tripod with, and this one was shot at 1/10 handheld. thanks.
