Well, with the two shots together, I would say that I prefer the color version. That is not to say the B&W did NOT work, but I think the color is more pleasing to my eye.

I agree when viewing on a screen. I wish you could see the B&W when printed on Hahnemule Fine Art Pearl paper. The B&W photo takes on a whole different demension. Printed with HP B9180, does really nice B&W.

I dont think its a purposeful vignette, i think it was a circular fisheye.

Just to throw my two cents in to the mix, I'd have to say that B&W is better. The first BW shot was good. I agreed with some of the other posters that a recrop to tighten in on the wood would make things better. I also agree with feathering the vignette.

I think that a bit more contrast would make the BW pic really stand out. However the quick adjustment made by one of the prevoius posters, I think was a bit extreme. Just a subtle change to add that "pop" to it, would really be a nice adjustment.

As far as comparing it to the color version, I think the BW had more feeling to it. Maybe it's because I came from the B&W film side, that I think it has more of an artistic feel, but I think in this case that the color version doesn't really stand out. Black and white, when done well, can make the most simple of subjects stand out in ways that color can't do. Sometimes I see photos where the color actually detracts from the impact of the scene.

Just a few thoughts....

The vignette is due to this being a circular fisheye. I have had some like my print with it in and some prefer it cropped out. I also have a version I photoshopped out the Vignette. Does this one work?
