Welcome to my photoblog. I try to keep it updated daily with a new photo from either my personal or professional life. It is not intended to be taken as my professional portfolio (please visit the main website for that), but instead it is more of an informal and fun way for me to share some of my personality and creativity with you. Many of the photos on my blog are available for purchase as fine art prints, please visit the main website and/or contact me if you are interested. Enjoy!

Great Cormorant Lookout - Colour vs Black and White?

Today's shot for the "Photo a Day" project is called Great Cormorant Lookout. While processing this image I thought it might look good in black and white, but then I could not decide which version of the shot I liked better. I really like the shot in colour, but I think the black and white brings your attention more towards the Great Cormorant (the subject). Which do you prefer? Leave me a comment below.

UPDATE: I had a few people ask for a muted tones version of the shot to compare, well here it is. I let only 30% of the colour come through on this.
