Another shot from Northern State Hospital, no idea what the pipe was used for, however, it looked pretty cool so how could I pass it up? Ever get ready to post something and think..hmm, wonder if I did this or perhaps that to this image? Yeaaaa, well…that’s what happened to me this morning. I was all ready to post the colour version and wondered what it would look like in B&W…what do you think? Personally, I like the B&W version. 😀

  1. Isn’t it so well worth it to slow down and capture stuff like this. Fan of both, will will have to agree that I like the B&W better. I think the single toning simplifies it somewhat for the eye.

  2. Pretty hard choice, but I would go for the colour. The cobwebs are a bit better in the black and white, but overall the colour one works better for me. Though quite why I can’t really say.

  3. The color seems to show the age more and I note the object itself, but the B&W shows more texture and I notice the cobwebs and dirt more; so, It simply alters the perspective for me. Both great! This looks like an old fire hose attachment (grandpa was a fireman back in the day, I’ve seen my share of photos, but alas, only a guess).

    • Hi Melanie, thank you for the comment! A fire hose attachment, interesting. The location of this little fella was mid wall, just a pipe going up and down the wall. It was located about 5 or 6 feet from what I believe to be a boiler or perhaps a furnace of some sorts (lots of pieces missing)…

  4. I vote for the color version. The details of the pipe are lost in the b&w and the subtle green/blue areas at the top and bottom of the color version compliment the pipe’s color. I do like how the textured layer pops on the b&w, though.

    • I see what you mean Dan and am leaning towards the colour version myself. I really like the “dead space” in the colour version, the colours there are simply wonderful (if you ask me)!
