Black & White or color

The combo of street lights, vehicle lights and traffic lights just didn’t work for me, color wise.

This morning I awoke to a fresh snowfall I had not expected, so I had to hurry out and see what I could find to photograph. Since I had to drop some images off at Gallery 54 anyway, I decided that a wintery street scene might be nice. I took this photo in color, as I do with 99% of my images. I even had hoped it would work in color. However, The variety of different temperatures in the various lights didn’t work for me. So, I converted it to black and white and then pumped up the black a little.

I think the black and white conversion tell my story of a “crystal” morning better.
