My vote is for B&W. It gives the whole scene a more desolate and historical feel. The color version is a very nice picture of an old building. The B&W version has a great deal more character and mood to it. This is one of those subjects that is perfect for Black and White. Nice work.

Both of them are great photos, each in it's own way. Brilliant. Is a little whaling station or perhaps a fish oil factory or a fish processing site in general?

Definitely B&W. The many shades of silver are much more interesting than the color version. Very nice!

The B&W version is much superior to my eye, as well as everybody else's.

I believe it to be a matter of balance. The brilliantly blue sky misleadingly grabs the eye, though it's not that important in itself. Rendered in monochrome, the sky balances the rocks in the foreground in a combination of two design elements, drawing attention to the building, instead of distracting from it.

The perspective shown in both the sizes of the foreground rocks and the line of the clouds leads the eye naturally towards and around the focus of interest.

I expect Gisli's on-board mental supercomputer worked all that out, using its rather fine instinctive landscape photography module.

Thanks for all comments:-)I'm leaning to the b&w also I used the cs3 black&white layer It is so ease to get good contrast with it and I sharpened it moore after b&w conversion. Torgny this was fish processing house and half of it harbour managment house. It is still in use over the summer when holliday people come fishnig Salmon and Trout they use it for the fishing gear.

Regards.

Gisli.

In the first place, that's a pretty nice composition with great use of foregroundBetween the two versions I'd favour the B&W one easily!

Btw, how about a selective job on the rocks using the eraser brush with %30-40 opacity, after having pasted the B&W layer on the colourful onefor some further emphasize ; )

My pick is the B&W. The color shot is quite nice, but the B&W is awesome. In color, the rocks are just there as a foreground, but in B&W they are key players.

Thanks bahadir and shadokachir. Yes bahadir I agre with you I should have popped up the stones moore. But when I was working on it this was so dramatic change from the color one I didn't even think about more work on it:-)

Best regards.

Definately B&W.

You should make up an online album of your B&W shots, they're excellent.
