    I shoot mostly colour now, I started out shooting b&w. I have plans for B&W, but I'm not done with colour yet. I'll burn-out on colour at some point and then pursue my monochrome ideas. It is not either or, but what I have time for and what motivates me.

    Another old thread resurrected?

    95% BW, 5% colour. Oddly enough two out of three of my pictures hanging in my living room are in colour...

    with b/w your picture must be a good conbination of composition and lightfall.
    With color we are easily confused by the colors and do not see the actual picture anymore. "When the color combination is ok, the picture is ok..."

    But color helps indentify things, and that's necessary sometimes.

    IMHO Colour does a better job of stimulating the emotions. If used properly a colour image can overwhelm
