October 24, 2016 Update: Andy Hooker’s comment (see below) made me want to make the comparison between black and white and color versions of this photo. So I added them.
This entry was posted on October 20, 2016 by Linda Grashoff. It was filed under Farmlands, Flowers and was tagged with fence, fog, nature, Queen Anne's Lace, spider web.
I looked at the first image, saw the Web and thought: that would make a picture on its own. And I scrolled down and there it was!. I have to say, somewhat to my surprise, that I liked the colour image better. Sometimes colour that is subtle can have a disproportionate impact on an image. But that is a personal opinion.

OK, I just added the color versions of this photo to the blog post, Andy, so you can see the comparison. To tell the truth, I don’t know why I made this image black and white when I first processed it two years ago. Maybe so it wouldn’t look so much like the previous image??? Now, not comparing In the Land of Queen Anne’s Lace 1 with In the Land of Queen Anne’s Lace 2, I think you’ve won me to your side. In general I do like subtle color, though you’d never know it from some of my photographs.

I think the joy of colour is that sometimes it can be stand-out colour and sometimes it can be ever so subtle. And it’s also true of B&W – you will know that I like my B&W images to be bold, but I do also enjoy the high-key images too

There’s so much to like in photography!

I like the color images better here, but i respect you for doing both! There is already some abstraction going on in the image so no need to convert to B & W to emphasize abstract forms …and the forms get too confusing for me in B & W. Plus that soft green is gorgeous, and the wetness holds up well. I like the web, too!

Thanks for your vote on these, Lynn. I have to agree. As I told Andy, I had a trivial reason (if I remember it right) for going to black and white. Glad he called me out on it, and gave you the chance to agree.
