After the success of last Wednesdays colour image I decided to do another one. This time a Castle, and one of my favourite sites this year. Ballyadams Castle in Co. Laois. What we now see of this quite stunning ruin dates back to the 15th century. For anyone whom missed the original post or would like to learn about the history of this castle, you can CLICK HERE.
Again working from the RAW file, I made a slight levels adjustment and increased the structure. For those of you whom have been following this blog for a while, you will know that I have been shooting the many sites I visit in black & white for over a year and a half. I find that this medium fits in better and portrays the subject much better than a colour shot. That said I guess they can look equally stunning in colour. And so I find myself back at where I started 18 months ago, with the same conundrum, Colour or Black & White? Maybe it is something that I will always struggle with, or perhaps the images will dictate the outcome on a case by case basis! I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on this, which are always much appreciated. 🙂
