Which one do you like better?

I rarely make B&W photos, and in some cases I really should.  Venice is one such place that really lends itself to B&W.  I would put this in a gold frame and wouldn't it look nice on a red wall?

Canon S90.

I think I like the color one because it already has a feel of monochromatic-ness (is that even a word?) in that it is mostly earth tones.

This is true... the gondolas are black and white even before you change it!

I can see that, it would be very beautiful

The black and white one the gondolas are the main focus. The color one that bit of gold water steals your attention. Both are wonderful. Which do you want the focus, gondolas or water?

Black and white. I love B&W work, especially when it evokes timelessness. B&W can be used effectively to focus on the subject, as opposed to the colors. This scene is relatively monochromatic.

The other technique I like a lot is where the scene is largely monochromatic but there is *one* focus point of color - much like my submission to the photo contest.

I prefer the color. To me, it conveys the richness of the environment whereas the black & white seems more like "art."

It seems pretty split, and I can't really decide either. Thank you for taking a look!

Maybe if I had a bunch of B&Ws all hung together, hmmm...
