    Wedding car !

    Walking with some friends along streets of my city, I discovered near a church this typical french car ready for Hollymoon departure.

    I am doubting beetween b&w and color.

    Thanks for your reviews

    Thierry,

    I prefer the colored version, and like how the blue color of the car enhances the colors of the stone and masonry work behind it.

    Surprising as it may seem, I would suggest that the colour version is the stronger image.

    I do not think there is enough of a tonal range in the B & W version. The roadway, the car and the walls of eh church are all in, generally, the same quite narrow tonal range.

    The colour version, on the other hand, is an image in which colour and not tone, is important. The blue car contrasts wonderfully, in my view, with the grey of the roadway and the stones of the church.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Wedding car !

    For me I prefer the b&w version, Thierry. If you will exaggerate the colors and contrast and then do the b&w conversion using ACR you will get more tonal range from the image. The colored version lacks the necessary color harmony to make it pop. Reducing it to black and white will allow the viewers to concentrate on lines, curves, textures, and lighting distribution. I played a little bit on your colored image and came up with this edit using ACR on the b&w conversion. I hope you don't mind.
