Black and White Sunday: After and Before

I love seeing the results of other peoples after and befores on Lost in Translation. This photo challenge allows a bit of creativity as well. This time I have chosen a photo that I was thinking of taking in black and white at the time but didn’t for some reason. Now is my chance to see it as I saw it in a church in Dijon.

  1. This post is an example of how drastically different a colored photo can look – because they seemed to be two different photos when I first looked – nice choice for the B&W sunday…

  2. Interestingly the two photos evoked different emotions and images. Although I cannot quite say which one I liked better the BW one was like an impersonal photo of an indeterminate past. But the colored photo told a story of a school, perhaps an auditorium waiting for children to come and sit jabber squirm anything to brush away the loneliness, the silence…err umm the Sun is rather bright today πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

  3. It’s not easy for me to decide which of the 2 versions I prefer. The colour photo it not very “colourful”, it reminds me of a sulphur-tinted B&W #photography.
    Interestingly (for myself), I prefer the first two rows of chairs in colour, and the more distant chairs in B&W (which gives them an even more “graphic” look).
    However, both pictures are good!

    It’s also interesting to read in the comments how differently people see photos.

  4. They don’t look very comfy but make for a great image, especially in monochrome. Thanks, Brian, I am so glad to hear you enjoy this challenge. In two days I am doing the colour one.

    1. Thanks. The B&W did take me by surprise. I don’t think church chairs were meant for comfort lol. I was thinking about you tonight and here you are. Must be the cosmos. Hope you are feeling OK Paula
