Photo 101: Water


Ely Black and White framed


Ely 10


Day 3 of Photography 101 asked us to take a photo that included water.  I took this picture recently in northern Minnesota, near Ely.

The original photo was color.  I  used a photo editing thingy to make it black and white.  I added a few other effects as well.   Which do you prefer and why?

I’m trying to understand when black-and-white is preferable to color.
