They’re both awesome in the true sense of the word. Photos can speak the language words cannot. You were undecided and your vote is split in half, but I bet everyone who voted had just as hard a time choosing as you did. Excellent work.
B&W looks august and majestic!
Black and white , looks like something out of a Spielberg movie. More ominous.
Right on! I was just as impressed with the cloud formation. thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.
I’d normally go for B&W but the clouds in the colour pic catch the light beautifully.
Both of them are intriguing, however, I think some of the cloud detail gets lost in the B&W version. I could look at the color version’s cloud detailing for a long time.
i would chose black and white…
The black and white makes it look like the Capitol is on fire.
i have to ask: did that clouds were this way when you took the pic? or did you use photoshop? this is a unique and amazing pic.
The clouds are legit. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I did use photoshop to do the HDR rendering, but the clouds where right there behind the capitol building.
Very nice! It’s a very unique photo, and them clouds couldn’t come in a better time.
Lol, what are the odds of getting the clouds to do THAT for you?! Great photo!
Always good to have some luck…
I voted for the B&W, but I gotta ask — did you filter for reds before making the conversion? If not, give that a try and see if it makes the clouds pop even more and bring out more detail, as it should darken the skies.
No, I didnt…I will play with that and see what it looks like. Thanks for the pointer. Thanks for checking out my blog as well.
I’d be interested in seeing what you come up with on that tip. Email me if you decide to post it, please.
For me, the B&W. It makes it more dramatic but I also am a little bias against the HDR look in general.
My wife isn’t a big fan of HDR either, because if the halo effect it can produce. When I edit in HDR now I try to do it without that halo, and she liked a few of those photos
