A shot of a local church door. I can not decide which I like better the color or B&W

"Savdem" helped me in a recent "Critique" post to understand the difference he felt between color and B&W. He said that he felt color brought out feelings, whereas B&W tends to emphasize forms. I believe that I agree with his viewpoint. It all depends upon what you are trying to impart by your images. I like both very much. To me, the first has a warm, inviting feeling, with the well-worn wooden door having seen much use. In the second image, I am more apt to notice the shapes -- triangles, crosses, rectangles.

I like them both, but the second one is so nice as a BW witht the rich grain in the wood.

I also think the B&W looks better with the grain in the wood.
