one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Lunch in the sun in the Place du Cap.Do you prefer this shot in Black and White or colour?
Restaurants and Bars,
The Old Town
Black and white, for sure.
Black and white,absolutely! I got the feeling this was taken in 1930's or so. Amazing athmosphere.
Beautiful..Spring and summer are on their way to Menton
I'm surprising myself by choosing the bw for this image. Somehow it fits the historical looking flavor better than the color rendition.
je prefere la version b&w, on se croirait dans un film de pagnol, j'aime ce type de photo, bravo
Just to be different! Although it is good in black and white, I still prefer colour. I love colour and I generally don't like digital photos changed to or taken in B & w. It's nothing to do with your photo itself. It doesn't mean I would only like to see your photos in colour. I look forward to seeing more of your photos in both colour and B & W.
black and white has better atmosphere. Lovely photo. Lucka
I don't like black and white, that's why god invented colours, nice picture!
B&W because the standing man's face requires it!Lovely, and the idea of posting both options is fun.Ciao
Definitely COLOUR!!! There's enough black, gray and white in my world already.
I like the color version, mostly because the sunshine and the orange juice.
JillyA curve ball for you both -- I agree I love B & W's for the subtle nuances that you cannot capture with color, having said that --I would like to see the colored version done in a pastel or watercolor for a postcard.. while I would frame up the B & W for a great photo sitting on my desk - signed From France with Love wish you were here.The dreamer that I amJoanny
I agree with Pasi, Olivier & Hladovy ohar that the B&W is preferable. It does look like something from a 1930's movie shot & brings to mind Humphrey Bogart don't you think? There is action to the photo.
Most definitely b&w! It's a timeless image.
Go for the black and white!!!
Yes, go for the b/w.Nice place.
Usually, I don't like to do as everybody does, but I select Black and white, Jilly. If the man take off its hat, it's an other story.
I like the vintage appearance of the photo in B&W.
Since you asked, the color is my preference! Both might be more interesting (to me) if the colors or b&w was less intense. :-)I agree with Catherine, the man with the hat makes the photo.Ken B.
Je trouve aussi que le noir et blanc est parfait. Un peu ambiance des années 50. Nostalgie, quand tu nous tiens!
je prendrais un black'n white
I will copy Bergson's français! :) je prendrais un....noir et blanc! How's that! And merci for the petit cadeau! J'adore.xxV
These photos show a scene of the street, I select black & white...This scene you have seen well...GreetingsYvi
I love both! the black and white is like stepping back in time but the colour is what we need and look forward to after this long winter.
Interesting question, Jilly, and some fabulous comments in response. To be able to compare the two is a pleasure. For me, the colour version is a scene, whereas the B&W is a story.
Thanks SO much everyone for the fabulous and thought-provoking comments. Really really appreciate them all.
I like the color version. The black and white makes me think of a documentary. The color version makes me want to sit at that vacant table and have lunch.
«Louis» votes for the b&w. It feels very retro to him - and makes him think of Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper's Paris After The Liberation.
