Mono or Color

This is a post for Monochrome Monday hosted by @old-guy-photos, but as the title may suggest I am cheating a little, or maybe not cheating but veering off from it being just a monochrome post, as I had this shot I edited on the weekend and I did a Mono and a color version and I couldn't decide which one I preferred, so I would love if you have time to take a look at them both and let me know which one you prefer,

Since I am using the Monochrome Monday Tag let me share the mono version first

This shot was taken one morning as the sun was rising at Wildermeer Beach here in Milford, as I have shown in a previous post this beach has many of this worn structures along the beach and I find them cool to include in shots ass the sun is rising, and have edited most of them in color, but I decided to try this one in color and I quite like it, I think the sun stars stand out more and the wooden structure also looks better in Mono.

However, I also do love the color version maybe just for the colors and moodiness of the sky and hence why I decided to share both versions in this post.

Again if you read this far and have time I would love to hear which of these you prefer

And that’s all folks

I have read the word apocalyptic in the comments, and I agree, but my first thought was that it could be from an old Western movie - I love the monochrome version - it looks so !DERANGED beautiful 😊
The colors of the are really great, but the monochrome is outstanding.

!BEER

Yes I do get why someone called it Apocalyptic, but in a good kind of way, but then I am !DERANGED LOL, the color makes oen want to sit and enjoy the view and a !BEER

I meant it in a good and a bit !DERANGED kind of way too ;) - I love that monochrome 🙂
The colors are beautiful, as I said, and you are right, it makes you want to go there and enjoy the view, but if I had to decide which photo to hang on the wall I would not hesitate and take the monochrome :)

!BEER

I was thinking myself if I was to print one which would I got for and I think I would go for mono myself

Or be !DERANGED and original by both to go either side of a room lol

!BEER

A big print would look cool - both would look cool 🙂

!DERANGED
!BEER

Yeah I am pondering that, I may do that when we move in the room I do photo editing, sort of !DERANGED maybe but covering the dark and light side LOL

!BEER

Yes, very good idea, because both photos would do so well on a wall 🙂

I may be !DERANGED and an ex !BEER drinker but i do very rarely I do admit have good ideas LOL

Both images are amazing! However, the mono version draws my attention a little more than the color.

Thanks for your feedback :)

I think it is pretty awesome how easily you can make a photo mono these days. I am sure the computer converting it doesn't get the tones and shades exactly right, but it is still pretty impressive.

YEah I have a few different ways i do the Mono images on the PC, some work better for some styles of images and some for others

I love the color version. Nature paints lovely colors 😉👍

Thanks for your feedback :)

Spooky pretty...

Yeah I get you

Oh...i can see the problem you were having that is a hard decision they both look awesome either way so i will frame both...lol 👍

LOL 👍🙂👍

Each creates a different mood for me. When I first glance at the first edit, I see crosses and desolation. The color edit suggests the sun rising on a new day, hopeful and warm. You picked a nice foreground to frame the sun.

Thanks for your feedback I guess thats how i saw them as well but could never have said it so well

You're very welcome!

👍🙂👍

I prefer the color version. You really made the colors pot, and I can still see the sunburst. It is the colors that make me prefer it. The mono-chrome one is a good picture, but I think the colors look and bring more drama to the picture. The colorization on the sand really makes the whole picture pop for me.

Thanks for your feedback fromthe responses it seems about 50/50 which one people prefer and its is interesting to read peoples thoughts :)

👍🙂👍

They both have parts to like, but amazingly, I think the mono has more impact.

Can't believe I am saying that. I adore color ! :)

I usually prefer color as well but the mono fir me is quite powerful

Can't decide. I like both of them. Great lines and composition!

Thanks cheers

They both look great Jay!! I want to say color because I love the colors, especially the color of the sun hitting the sand but then the mono keeps calling me back so I'm glad you posted both and so I love both! 💖 😁

Thanks thats how I feel about them I keep bouncing between one and the other

You are very welcome Jay!! 🙂

Congratulations @tattoodjay!

I like the color one. The blue and yellow add additional contrast to the shadow. Did you take a look at a somewhat de-saturated version? That might be interesting, too. I really like the lens flare off the reflected light, with the sun hidden behind the wooden beam. It almost makes it look as if the sun fell on the ground.

Thanks for the suggestion If I remember I will try that tonight 👍🙂👍

They are both outstanding!
Totally different in gorgeousness... :D I think they bring different elements to the table, therefore should not be judged together... That's my version and I'm sticking to it anyway! Lol....

I do understand what you are saying about it, and thanks :)

Yep, if we're still voting, I think I like the monochrome version better as well. Has more character!

Thanks I appreciate your thoughts :)
