It’s easy to switch a digital image back and forth from the original color to black and white. Too easy. And there are of course endless variations in effects that can be applied to both color and black and white. I’m trying to evolve some general rules for this, and not getting very far. Anyone have an opinion? For example, here’s a small series:
First image, as shot. Obviosly in color.
Second image, color, enhanced using aa Lightroom pre-set..
Third image, black and white. Also using a Lightroom pre-set.
Anyone care to offer an opinion about which is best, and just as important, why?
