Colorado 7 – Color or B/W?

Highway 7, just south of Allenspark. Color first:

I like the color, but am playing with B/W more these days in pursuit of … drama? With landscapes, especially, I’m learning from the process of pretending I’m Ansel Adams.

    This is a toss-up. They’re both compelling. There’s a bit more shadow detail in the trees (right and left) in the color version, so I’ll lean slightly toward that one.

  4. Color rules…is that US 40 headed West towards Berthoud Pass? Looks like Democrat Mountain.

  5. Highway 7 SE of Allenspark. Trying to figure out what I’m seeing. Is that Meeker with Long’s Peak behind it, maybe?

  7. I’m with Denny because of the detail factor. I’m thinking you’ll be a lot happier with your B&W work if you try to avoid patches of black and try to get some slight detail in there.

  8. Oh, I can get the detail in there. I was intentionally darkening everything around the edges.
