Oh I do like this one. The warm sunlight colours and the shadow are perfect in this photo. Excellent capture.

Virginia said...

The shadow, the color, the angle. Perfect. I am a big fan of warm color in photos. This is just lovely Snapper.

From yesterday's chill to today's warmth - all with the use of colour. The low angle of the rays and the intensity of the shadow work with the colours in the original setting.

Goodo ...

See this is what I mean about photography being subjective. Technically this is a superb image, yet I am drawn to yesterdays, purley by the colour. My head tells me this is the one. My heart tells me the blue toned one. It is a fantastic shot. The low angle, the intense shadow, the busrt of rich colouring it's all there in spades.Show me both images in b&w, this one is the winner. Add blue to one and orange to another and I take the blue.Even photographers are fallable to a heart shot.

Take the colour out of this and out of yesterday's image and I think they are both diminished. Actually, yesterday's would be bland without the colour. Sorry, Snapper, that is not meant to come out sounding like a criticism.

IMHO, the only image thus far that just might work in monotone is the first one of the leaf on the bench. Four down; three to go.

What is he going to come up with next?

Lovely, and the color makes it for me. I rarely think black & white is a superior option now that I use a digital camera. It's just another special effect that can be chosen. In high school and college, I shot in B&W because it was easy to process at the school labs myself. But I took different pictures within that framework, and now I like including the color in how I approach a subject.

Snapper said...

Julie, I completely agree. Both images would be considerably diminished in monochrome. I am finding my way which is the point of this little exercise. Thanks to all who have offered opinions thus far!

It is precious time to sit and relax. Just only sit. And only relax.
