The Out of Fairylanders (and Monochrome Madness)

Does the poetry of sunlight and colour speak to you

shining web

or do you prefer the will o’ the wisps and fire fly torches  that emerge from the dark shadows.

(And my submission to Leanne Cole and Laura Macky‘s Monochrome Madness week 33)

    I like both almost equally! The color shots are more magical for me and the monos have a very different but equally awesome feeling. These are great photos whether done in color or black and white! Of course, that’s my own opinion. 🙂

    I can’t help it….I like the color. There is just something very glowy and warm and wonderful when i see the color images. They seem to have a bit more depth to me. But then you know how much I love color. lol

  8. With these particular images, I think that colour works better. But others you’ve posted lend better to monochrome; especially the ones of spooky buildings.

  10. The spider web feels more dramatic in B&W, but the waterfalls are exquisite in color (in my most humble opinion, Cybele!). ♥

    I can’t vote! They’re very different from one another, but I like both versions for different reasons. The golden light in the color spider web photo is gorgeous, but then the B&W makes the water droplets sparkle. The fairy glen photos have completely different moods; the color one has cool, refreshing feel – a place to rest during a long walk, and the B&W seems more mysterious with fairy lights on the trees and the leaves in the water. Choose? No way! But it’s interesting to see both and think about their differences.

  13. I like the side-by-side…in this case I voted for the color shots – they just looked a bit more rich, but it was not an easy choice.

  14. I voted for colour Cybele – mainly for the spider webs , I think perhaps monochrome for the fairy glen. It was a difficult choice, I love silver so I enjoyed the silver silk, but in the end, those russets and sepias won out 🙂
