    I came across this old derelict train station on the way home from work yesterday so this morning I shot out to take a couple snaps of it. I'm not sure which shot I like the B/W or the Color.



    Both shots taken on my Sony nex f3

    Looks cool, I love old stuff too! If you can adjust levels in B&W, try darkening or lightening green so that your station stands out more.

    Nice!!! :thumbup:

    Yeah, from the 2 above the colour version looks better, but if the B&W was PP'd like Joel suggested then it would be a close call :)

    yeah that's something I need to work on I don't really understand all the editing tools it all just confuses me lol. I find anything more than the basic crops and auto enhance just ends up going wrong.

    I'm feeling the colour one also, as the b+w seems too busy, nice job! ;)

    I think your right about the B/W being too busy, and I think that maybe B/W is more suited to umm more defined subjects or things that stand out more if you know what I mean.

    Good photograph ! Highlghts are a little harsh on my computer, I would tone the general exposure one notch and maybe bring saturation up a tiny bit.

    Making the right picture (which you have) is the most important step, editing will come with time.

    Black and white can be both tricky, and simple at the same time. After years of shooting nothing but black and white film, I kind of get the idea of what something will look like in black and white, and not everything looks as good in black and white as it does in color.
