I also prefer the colour version- though as Saly suggests,maybe a contrast tweak may help..? Of course,some shots just don't work in B+W- that said,I couldn't resist a tweak..!

Thanks Saly for the input. By adding contrast do you think the image is too dark or it just needs a little more pop to the shot.

Is Simon's edit what you where talking about?

Thanks Simon for taking the time to work on the image. I think there is a little more highlights in the edited image.

Thanks both,

jj

It's interesting that the original colour image has the required contrast that the original B+W doesn't. All I did was to push up the mid tones and highlights a bit via "levels" and used the "burn" tool on the darker areas in the trees and on the rocks.

I too like the color version. You need to work a little on the BW to make it come out better, but still I think the feel of the place gets lost in BW.

Thanks Raghu.

I was thinking of getting a print of this shot and just wondered what all of you liked the best.

Thanks all, for the input.

I also like the colour version better. I think it contains many great colours, the black stripes and the trees. I think you lost some detail in the bw version.
