In this case I think I prefer a color shot. The white is very bleached out and i hope to get some more atmosphere in it then.
I agree with you, you are absolutely right. I'll visit your blog again.
I like the black and white... I know the bright whites are nearly burned out, but that is an honest exposure of the scene. I like diners, cafes, bars etc for photography.
Thanks for your comments!It was a close call between the color or b&w version of the picture but in the end I liked the higher contrast of the b&w version more. It fits the mood a bit better.I will post the color version to compare though.
