A special image as is and I don't think so because the mood would be changed, but maybe a black and white would work also.

Thank you Roger, I gave it a try - and you are right!

waldo-posth -

Thanks for the b&w. I don't know exactly why but I have a strong, strong preference for the color. The b&w is devoid of feeling, just blah. With the wonderful composition, the color in the first just grabs your eye and yanks it across all the negative space. Perhaps it's that movement or the "happy" mood of the first that I get. I don't know exactly why but I know I prefer the color - great image in many ways.

Roger

P.S. I also wondered about the darker area in the upper-left corner that my initial instinct told me "eliminate it", but when I covered it up the image definitely was negatively effected by removing that spot of darkness - I think it is needed to balance the image. I love images like this that help me learn what makes a good image better, in this case the dark spot and having it in color. Of course, this is just one person's opinion but I have learned from this for the future.

I prefer the color. For me the water flattens out and disappears in the black and white version. Especially if the upper left corner is gone. Beautiful photo.

The colour one is good and the B&W is nearly better but I think the top left corner needs to be removed and then give the contrast a big boost :-)
