Strolling around I stumbled across these sheep in the cold Bavarian winter:
Well, I thought, nice match of brownish colors with the "white of winter"
Upon thinking further I had the tendency to crank up color-saturation to emphazise what little color that shot had (we all long for some
color in winter, don't we?). Thinking a little longer I came to the reverse conclusion to drain the pic off every color and convert to black&white. See the result:
I've produced another black&white version with more contrast and sharpness:
Now I'm not so sure.
So what do you think? Which version do you prefer? Why?
What are good situations to use b&w? Are there any hints & tipps to improve upon either of the results?
Please speak up! I'm quite confused...
