San Giovanni in Ranui, Dolomites - in colour
« on: May 04, 2019, 05:10:39 am »

This is again the famous church of San Giovanni in Ranui at sunset, on the Dolomites (Italy). This is a one-minute long exposure and this time, after posting the B&W version a few days ago, I present it to you in colour. With Leica SL, Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm and the incredible Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters.



Thank you for viewing, best regards

ever a pleasure to see..
IMHO the monochrome version works better. Especially for the different (and IMHO more dramatic and interesting, with that sky...) composition, but also for tones.
all the best,

I like this version with the golden hour lighting.

Thank you very much indeed Sandro, glad you enjoyed it! :) Well, I love them both of course, but I agree with you - I think the B&W version is more "me", so to speak :)

I prefer absolutely the B&W version.
I don't care that much for the skies but the church in the BW version is glorious.
In the color version the advantage is that the copyright stamp is less conspicuous  (I know, I know, I repeat myself  ;) )
In the BW it competes with the church

I just now got to compare them, and I, too, prefer the B&W (while the color is nice, too.)

I join the latest comments and also prefer the B&W version although the light is very rich in the color image.
