The colour for sure...I love the shades in the clouds that you don't see in the b&w...such a beautiful photograph!

I'm going with color... I'm curious Mary-Laure, as you know Los Angeles is supposed to be notorious for it's smog and as a world traveler you're probably one of the best people to ask, do you think it's as bad as they say?

Mary-Laure said...

GABBI - I don't think that bad, really... Maybe it's also because I live in Venice, by the ocean?

I love the black and white photo. It adds so much more depth to the whole picture!

I vote for the B & W, it ads mistery ...

Definitely color. The B&W one just doesn't seem to have enough graphic contrast to highlight the beauty of it.

And, have to say...living in Venice is going to give you a false impression of the smog. I lived an hour north, in Oxnard, and we used to look south, and see the big brown smudge in the sky. It wasn't very appealing. :p Luckily for LA, it has SOOO much more to offer! lol

Mary-Laure said...

b FLAT and WORLD IN A PAN - you're the first ones to go for B&W...
