  1. For this photo I prefer the black and white. Simply because the photo is of an old diner and the black and white photo gives it the, shall we say, rustic effect.
    The color photo doesn’t have any pop for me.

  2. It’s me again. But I do love those colors. How about that effect you’ve sometimes done where it’s mostly b&w but some portion is lightly colored to stand out? Sorry don’t know what that’s called. I’d like to see that too.

  3. I’m not a photographer, don’t even know much about it. I just know what I like. I like them both but they definitely evoke different feelings. I agree with Christina, the color one is nostalgic and a little sad but looks like it was once fun. The b&w is mysterious and eerie . . . like the cafe in the old Twilight Zone episode in which that couple gets stuck in the diner. As if you could go in and never come out! In dream symbolism that would be exploring the hidden recesses of the unconscious and I guess that makes it more interesting and thought provoking.

  4. I almost think the blue sky distracts the eye away from the structure, so Im voting for the black and white. Although the black and white makes it a bit eerie and the color version makes me think it’s homier and someone might actually save it!

  5. I like it in black and white. It makes the picture kind of spooky. The color picture is nostalgic and interesting, but the black and white really stands out to me. Plus I just love all your pictures anyway. Thanks for sharing.
