Pumpkin times two

This is a photo I took of the pumpkin that my youngest chose to adorn our front step:

ISO 160 50mm 0ev f/5 85s

A lot of personality, kind of like the kid in question.  Anyway, this is an 85 second exposure because it was early in the morning, and this is a bit of a dark corner.  I had the white balance set on cloudy because I was hoping to warm up the photo a bit.  Once it was on my Mac I edited it a bit in Aperture.  Here is the same photo in black and white:

I personally prefer the black and white version but what do you think?  Please leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

    I normally like the black and white versions better, but this time I would definitely choose the color photo. I love the red with the orange because it just captures the vibrancy of fall. That pumpkin is cool and the color picture allows you to see just how cool. The black and white just looks “bumpy”.


    • It’s true that in the color version I was trying to accentuate fall colors, so I am glad that worked. I was interested more in texture with the black and white version. Maybe I had just been looking at too many fall pictures and the black and white was just a nice change of pace.
