Been visiting the forum since last December when I puchased my FZ20 and have learned alot (still have a long way to go)

Anyway my wife thought it would be nice to try and make a collage of pictures to hang up in the apartment and I am torn on a few pics about leaving them in color or trying B&W for a change.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated

The original was sharpened using Picasa2 and resized 100% crop and the B&W was just a convertion from sharpened original.

Original color

this isn't a good image for B&W, IMHO. not enough contrast between Hobbes and the rug... B&W works best, and is most dramatice, when there are distinct, contrasting elements in the image. i'd leave this one in color...

Have to agree with Squirrl. The original colour image works where as the B&W doesn't work - not enough contrast in the shot. You'll know when a shot looks right in B&W - it will just stand out even if the colour image is very good.

Cheers

Sprice, For something different try a combination of color and B/W. For instance make the backgound B/W and leave the color in the cat. Just a thought. Jim
