Canon Powershot ELPH 320 HS, Photo Editing, Photography

One scene, two photos, you decide

I took these shots the other week and have just put them through some editing:

ISO 100 9.1mm f/4.5 1/640

This shot sort of fits in with the “image” of this business which is a popular drive-up custard place that is going for a bit of the “Route 66” nostalgia.  It also reflects some of the blazing heat of that day.

ISO 100 7.0mm f/4 1/800

Perhaps because it was so hot out, I tried black and white, giving it a moodier and cooler feel.

Both shots were handheld with my point and shoot.

Do you have a preference?

  1. They are both good in their own right. This time, I really can’t say I have a preference. I look at the colour one and think “I prefer that one”, then I look at the black and white then think “no I prefer that one”.

    Can’t call it this time.


  2. Wendy says:

    I have a strong preference for the black & white. I think it captured a bit more detail in the clouds and has a really strong feel to the picture.


  3. If I have two pictures to compare, and one is color, I’ll always choose color. In fact, I’m learning not to let people compare two or more of my pictures except in tutorials. I’m the photographer and artist, and as Edgar Degas said a century ago, “Art is not what you see but what you make others see.” Although he was a painter, I think that applies to all arts.
