I am having trouble deciding between the color and monochrome versions of an image I captured recently. This was an early morning shot along the Russian River near Cazadero.
I was initially interested in the deep greens mixed with an overlay of white mist. However, after coming back to it a few more times, I find the impact of this slightly higher contrast B&W version to be winning me over due to the intense feeling of impressionist or maybe even earlier romantic era painting it seems to invoke.
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
