Monochrome and Colour of a Scene in Melbourne


Monochrome and Colour of a Scene in Melbourne

Last week I was doing some long exposures in the city and when I went to process one of them I converted it to black and white first. This is what I ended up with.


I decided to use this image for Monochrome Madness over on my other blog today. I like how it came out in monochrome.

As I usually do I converted it back to colour to see how it would look.


I lost some of the detail in the sky, but the blues in it are quite nice. It is going to be personal choice I think as to which one is better. I don’t think I have a preference.

  1. I love the composition, and see merits in both the colour and B&W version. Have you considered keeping most of it monochrome and brushing some colour back in-( eg the river and bridge)?

  2. fabulous images Leanne ( of course!)

  3. That is stunning in colour but more incredible in black and white
