Post Processing: Which One?

Post processing can make or break a photo.

Personally, I like to use post processing to enhance a photo, or to help to tell the story that I’m trying to tell.

But sometimes I take a photo and I can’t decide which conversion I like better.



The Color Version?



Or the Black and White?



Both photos were processed using Lightroom.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro Lens

Settings: Shutter Speed 1/250 Aperture: f/3.2 ISO:400



Which one do you like better?

I'm the odd ball. I love the B&W one.

i'm really into black and white right now, but i like this better in color.

I'm obsessed with black and white do I try s conversion with every photo! But I like the color version better here too.

I like the color picture better. The b&w is too dark.

My favorite in the color. I do love the way the green pops. The black and while makes me sad. Feels like it's the story of Pookah and his favorite ball... but the story doesn't end well.

The color one but then again I like the black and white. Hard choice I do black and white if the sun is way to much but the subject is giving an excellent pose but what do I know

I usually like my black and whites with a lot of light. But this makes the picture kind of moody. Because it was already in the shade and the b&w just emphasized the shadows
