Anyone playing with monochrome conversions in post-processing knows the pondering question: B&W or color? Like I did when looking at this shot of Ascensore Spianata Castelletto, one of the elevators that connect the base of Genoa‘s old town with the higher quarters. From the terrace next to the elevator you have a splendid view across the medieval old town out to the harbor and the Mediterranean beyond. I decided I like the monochrome version better. I think it better fits the elegance of the art deco elevator house. What do you think? Check out the color version after the jump…
Well, here is the colored version. What do you think? Look for photographs of yourself that you could imagine look well in monochrome, then convert them. And then decide: B&W or Color?
The image was taken with my iPhone 14 Pro and post-processed (incl. B&W conversion) in Lightroom Classic.
