Images often lend themselves to either one or the other – black and white or colour in presentation. A quick poll this week proved that this image in particular is more desirable in colour. Images work well in black and white if they have strong patterns, lighting, or message in them or expressions, such as an image of people laughing at a Wedding. Removing the colour pigments, desaturating, and tweaking the scale of the grays can lead to an altogether different image. In this image the colour of the girl’s hair and the contrast in her blue eyes is essential to the make-up of the image. What do you think?
