Here’s a dilemma for you… I’ve always liked color and monochrome images, and feel that there is a place for both depending on the image intent, subject, conditions, and other artistic criteria. However, I’ve always had a vocal minority of viewers that insist — nay, DEMAND(!) — that I stick only with color images because… well, just because!
The excuses offered up about why are difficult to pin down, but they’re always there. So here’s where you come in, dear readers: which do you prefer?
The images here of the Point Lookout lighthouse were taken at different times on the same day with the same camera, but with different lenses. The color images were captured later — closer to when the sun went down — so they were shot with a faster lens with a narrower field of view. Other than that, they are essentially the same.
