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?

Landscape Photography with a point and shoot camera

I have two photos for comparison in this post.  I took both with my new point and shoot camera.  I did not use a tripod.  Neither photo has any post-editing aside from scaling the images.  The first was taken in “vivid” mode, an internal to the camera color boost:

ISO 100 4.3mm f/8 1/200

This next one was taken in “monochrome”

ISO 100 4.3mm f/8 1/200

Do you prefer one photo over the other?
