Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – / Two Ways

This post is part of Amanda’s FFPC – theme being-  TWO WAYS.

Amanda wants us to post, one or two photographs presented “TWO WAYS” That is the same photo or the same environment presented in two different ways, or at two different times.

Do you prefer Color or B&W or you like to try both and see which is appealing?

I guess it depends upon how colorful the given situation is.

“Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive” Elliott Erwitt

Color vs Black and White

Do you prefer images Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) or you would insist to edit and give a better look?

In other words….to process or not to process?

Getting it right in the camera…..Is this possible all the time?

The speed with which Camera Software is being developed with AI taking chunk of the responsibility,it looks now a days photographer need not worry about SOOC and simply press the shutter button and move on…

Just forget what is inside the camera at the time of shoot, and just concentrate on what best (how much juice) your software can extract from what is inside the camera!

“There is 3 key things for good photography: the camera,lighting and… Photoshop” Tyra Banks

Straight out of Camera vs Edited version

“Too much light for the eyes is as useless as darkness.”
 Amit Kalantri

Photoshop & Life

“Photoshop your life,touch up the edges, Adjust the tones, Blur out the background, Focus on yourself, and crop people out” Kushandwizdom

You may or may not agree with photo editing.But then who cares?

“Beauty is in the eye of the photoshop editor.”
 Nitya Prakash


One talks of beauty on what basis?

“Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty.”  David Hume,

Thank you.

    I generally prefer color pictures but some B&W pics can look great.

    Photoshop though… I’m sorry, I prefer reality (unlike most people).

      Agree Majority also prefer color.
      After all one wishes the life to be colorful.
      I too prefer color.
      Photo editing consumes your time
      Photo editing software comes in handy when the photos are not satisfactory.Of course the photos must be in RAW format.
      Thank you Silk Cords

    As great as colour is B&W can add that dramatic touch. But I think it depends on the image. For example a flower, butterfly, dragonfly or humming birds colour is important. On a misty day, the sea spray, a wall and lighthouse or rock, in B&W can really add dramatic effect.

    To edit and not to edit is a great thing to think about. Sometimes the photo we take doesn’t look exactly like how we saw or remember the scene – and editing can bring that scene back to life. Beauty is subjective, and really there is always a lot of beauty within a photo. Sometimes when I play around with editing a photo I mess around with different colours, contrasts and effects just to see if I can bring a story to life from that image or beyond.

    The colour vs BW shot really evokes two very different images. Well done.

      Thank you my friend.
      Agree with you.
      Editing is the only way to overcome the frustration when the photo we click is is not up to our satisfaction.
      How the photo should appear ultimately is left to the discretion of the photographer.
