Ohio Creek – color vs. black and white

I’ve been looking hard at the shots I got from my Gunnison outing last month. In doing so I find I’m learning a lot about not only the technical differences in black and white vs. color, but also the differences in the stories the two approaches tell. All part of trying to learn not only about photography, but who I am as a novice shooter, as well. So, that said, here are two takes on a landscape I shot. They’re very different pictures to be the same picture, aren’t they?

Color first:

Ohio Creek, Gunnison, Colorado - color

Now the black and white:

Ohio Creek, Gunnison, Colorado - b/w

The Gregs (Thow and Stene) had some recommendations about cropping and b/w processing, which I was grateful to follow)..
