Wagon Wheels

 Old, but not antique, wagon

Like most of you, I'm sure, I liked the colour version of this photo (below) too, but I couldn't resist checking out what it looked like in B&W.

 Original photo

Sitting on a grassy plot amongst dandelion seed heads. What photographer could resist?

 Poster edges

Colored pencil

Revrunner said...

Oh yeah, that yellow wheel makes the image.

Absolutely perfect. I liked all the images, but especially the last.

Penelope Postcards said...

There is something about black and white that shines a special light on what is being photographed. Interesting how colour can hide shape and shadow. Nonetheless, I do like the painterly effect of the Poster Edges.

Annemor said...

TexWisGirl said...

neat texture on the side of the wheel! your b&w really emphasized that.

VP said...

I am all for the 'regular' color one!

Mary Hone said...

Nice, I like the black and white because it focuses on the details more.

Tom said...

I like them all, but the colored pencil is interesting. Tom

Buckeroomama said...

I love the original image in color, as well as the last one in the series.

Sylvia K said...

You do find and capture the very best and these are surely no exception!! Hope your week is going well!! Enjoy!!

marshaleith said...

Linda W. said...

I like the color photo best because you can see the flowers!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Yes, this time the color image works. I like those wheels.

B&W- Barbara Wójcik
Such similarity letters:-))))))

William Kendall said...

The black and white suits me best. I like the effects!

Lorna said...

I would vote for the black and white image. It made me think about when I was a kid and never got near a wagon or spent any time without spectacular technicolour all around me. I think my memory links musst be shorted out.

Barbara Wójcik said...

B&W.-Barbara Wójcik :-)))))))))

Small City Scenes said...

Oh funny---when I saw the black and white version my mind immediately saw a red wagon--red spokes and black tires then you showed the color version and I was just taken aback. weird

No photographer that I know could resist this awesome wagon (that includes me, by the way). I love all of your versions. When you get a good subject you can play and play ... no end to the fun. These are lovely EGC. It still amazes me that you are as good an artist as you are a photographer ... what else do you do? :)

RedPat said...

Karen S. said...

You have such a talent with these! Lovely.

Lmkazmierczak said...

Terrific editing...love them all♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/droplet/

Laura said...

I really love the way the texture pops in the black and white version… great discovery!

NatureFootstep said...

the BW one is my favorite. One I might hang on the wall. :)

Halcyon said...

All the effects are interesting, and usually I'm big on black and white... but this time I like the color version best. There's something nice about all that green.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I think in this picture I am partial to the coloured version.Great shot.

Jeanne said...

so much fun seeing all of the digital varieties that you can make happen so easily. like the poster edges....

Kovács Miklós said...

My favourite is the first version :)

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Love the first one, it's so right for the subject..

Rose said...

Oh, I so love the B&W version! Not that I don't like them all....

Vagabonde said...

I like the first photo, in black and white. It makes it more old timey and makes the mind wonder about it more.

Anvilcloud said...

I have a quick portrait snapshot of Sue in b&w and colour. What I notice is that in the colour version my eyes get pulled away from the face. I notice a similar effect when I look at these images, but I do like the original better than the arty versions in this case. It isn't always the case though.

Maybe I should post those two images since I have nothing else on my mind right now.

Randy said...

The black and white is amazing.

Stephanie said...

wonderful treatments on all the images!

Margaret Adamson said...

It is great in B & W alhtough the colour is lovely as well Love the third one but no the last one (my opinion)

llandudnopictures said...

The b&w really captures its age!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Fascinating edits of the old wheels. The black and white highlights the beauty of ageing, but like the sense of scratched colour in the poster edit.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

I like seeing them all! A great subject!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Love them all EG but if I had to chose it would be the third, fab!

cieldequimper said...

The black and white does it for me!!!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

'Thats a good' article, i usually amazed with' this thing, i asked myself about this opinion, I wish You'll a better articles that can make another people impressive..don't make the article feel rigit and isn't interesting and poor, i like to read this' article and i think this is "good".thank you' m'y brother.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Your B&W version creates an interestingly eerie effect that could inspire someone to write a freaky ghost story. Not me, though. Ghost stories freak me out. :-)

What Karen Sees said...

I, too, love old wheels. Love the colored version best, and your artistic rendition is fun, too.

Jack said...

I am a color guy, but I have to admit that the black and white works well with this material. The last one doesn't work for me . . .

ImagesByCW | C. Willison said...

Beautiful renderings of the same image.
My favorite in this case though is the original, maybe poster edges ;)

edenhills said...

No matter how you edit, it's a great image. I do think I like the old time feel of the black and white best.
