    i love the contrast on this photo. although i am a huge fan of bw, this processing gives this particular photo a grittier look. perhaps you can paint the shadows/highlights on the BW to give it more volume and planes. All great by the way!

    Excellent work. I think I like the first one the best, but it's a close call!
  • roger reyes 5y

    I preferred this version, Vinoth...because of the deep saturation, the process adds more details and character to the old cart and the brick wall.
    I really don't know how true is this, but I noticed that our friends and viewers on flickrs are more responsive to darker or photos that have more contrast, rather than light and dull ones. What do you think?

    I prefer this one the darker colors fit the situation of this abandoned car.

    @ roger eyes..yup your are right.. people are more responsive to photos with more contrast and photos with some post processing.. personal i also like the first one better than the other 2 versions.

    Thanks for all your great comments. I made to the explore front page yesterday for the first ever time with the below pic and iam soo happy.

    The images in the comments are not showing up, but the main picture is visually very compelling. The little bit of vignetting makes it look even more dramatic!

    Who could expect an abandoned horse wagon to look royal?
  • Janet 5y

    I think the first has more pop therefore is a very strong image. I think the processing is wondeful and I love the shadows. The deep tones make me wonder wht else might be in this barn. That said, the B&W comes on slowly and leads you around the photo until you marvel at the wealth of tones. Thanks for the challenge
  • Janet 5y

    Hmmm - the tones in th B&W are perfect...I like the color one because I found one just like it in New Jersey!
