Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and white

black and white solar light

I used this photo in a recent Mundane Monday challenge. It’s a photo of a solar light in the garden, taken from above.  In the original the yellow stands out and now in black and white it looks completely different.

I decided to play around with the photo and ended up transforming it into black and white for this week’s  Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge.

What do you think – do you like the colour or black and white version?

      Thanks, not bad for a humble solar light in the garden!!

    So hard to choose! I love the contrast in both, they’re both beautiful. But I’m drawn to the b&w, but that’s probably because I’m obsessed with it 😉

    Black and white because the colour one reminds me of warmth and I don’t have any right now!!!

    i love the black and white. I was really struck by the color version when you posted it, but the b&w takes it to a whole new level

      Thanks! I wasn’t sure whether to use it but decided to go with it so I’m happy that you (and others) have enjoyed the conversion.

    Debbie, the conversion makes all the difference in the image. It gives it a dramatic and even otherworldly appearance. Nicely done. Happy Photo Challenge.

      Thank you! I thought it gave it a whole new feel and otherworldly is a good description. For something so humble as a solar light, it certainly has made a difference!

    As often is the case with color vs. B&W, they’re so different that I find it difficult to say I like one better than the other. It may all depend on my frame of mind on a given day. 🙂 They’re both intriguing and cool.
