Man and doorway


Another great doorway from the Distillery District. I really love the contrast of the red brick and the green door.


But I also think it looks good in black and white. Which one do you prefer?

i like both but it's a shame to hide that pretty green door!

Because the door is such a gorgeous green, I'd choose the color. But the B&W is very dynamic as well ;D

I choose the color too. Just a thought -- what if you crop out the sky and the shadowy part on the bottom? Would throw more focus on the man and the door.

belle photo, j'aime bien la version couleur

RedPat said...

Me too - I like the colour!

I like it, Halcyon. I go for the colors. They are good and they provide ample contrast. Once you did it in B&W, the dark shadow on the bottom stood out, and I barely noticed it in the colored shot.

I think I prefer the B&W one, but it's the 1st time I hesitate :-)

In my humble opinion this is like asking if I prefer an out-of-focus picture or a sharp one. Without any offence, in the era of digital photography taking pictures in B&W with cameras capable of millions of colors is an abused and futile mannerism...

I agree that the green is stunning with the brick. I like the architecture you are finding around Toronto. Makes me want to play tourist there. :)

I'm with the majority, I like the green door and the color photo. Great job.

This one is difficult. Had you not shown the color version, I would have quickly said b/w. The green door is the focal point in this shot and I view the man as the balance for the composition and less important in this shot.... Therefore, I'm going with "color."

The color version gets my vote.

I think the B&W tie it all together - wonderful.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
