  1. Hmm, I might like the color one better, but darn, it’s tough to choose!

    • Honestly Resa, thats why I posted them both, I could not chose one! Really liked them both, for different reasons. The “fine art” perspective (color versus black n white) is what has me in a quandry though!

      • Ha! Maybe the quandry is the fact that the VS are both so qualified each in their own way, no judgement is valid. Outasight work, Stan.

      • I seldom allow my self to printed in color, Shows age. Black & white shows the soul.

  3. This is tougher than the last time we had this choice… I like both!! Agree B&W timeless ~ classic —
    Color may have more of the effect of swim-suit model vs classic beauty, so maybe depends on the goal.

    Stupendous work Stan! This pose a bit like my dramatic “Pain Shadow” Header pose that my daughter took !!Of course I’m not in bikini though 🙂 ~ Hope you are getting settled in new apt btw! RL

    • Well, it is OUR loss that you were not in a bikini Robyn! Thank you so much for your thoughts, this image was taken back in October. When I can across the set again, I was drawn to the textures and contrast of the curvy fair skinned model again the hard and fractured rock. Looking to add a more “fine art” look to the image I converted it to black and white. Then I was curious, does fine art have a place when used with color ? Color being such a distraction from the subject (or essence) of the photograph. I am hoping to gain some insight from the viewers here on this concept. Speaking of the “goal” of the image…I feel you are right on track. If the goal is fine art, then everything about the image should contribute to that intent. Fine art just doesn’t “happen” by converting it to black and white (so, why would color make such a difference in any “fine art” image?). Almost settled in, just a couple more boxes to unpack and now to get my main computer back up and connected. Class begins on the 10th, wish me luck?!?!

      • Not such a loss…lots of battle scars here 🙂 I agree… the light skin/hair and feminine figure great contrast to the rugged background! In this case I don’t think color is a huge distraction…but for some reason may favor the B&W just a tad. Something classic and timeless there I think. Glad you are making headway on your new place… Oh wow… good luck — what are you studying ??
