Black & White or Color

It snowed Friday night, and after I shoveled I got out the camera to take some shots. There was no a lot of snow, so I couldn’t get one of those shots where the snow softens the shapes of everything. It was also still very overcast, so it would not be a shot of colored objects against a blinding white background.

I ended up selecting this photo for my photo of the day. I ended up with a square crop. I was trying to emphasize the empty swing and the potted evergreen bushes. The fence provided a swath of color in a somewhat muted scene.

I posted the shot to flickr as my photo of the day, but I continued to play with it. I converted it to black and white and recropped it. I went with a broad landscape crop which emphasized the fence cutting across the photo. I think I preferred this one over the original, but I left the original as my photo of the day.
