Crystal Ball

Both of these are the same picture. Leave me a comment telling me whether you like the color or black and white version better, and why you feel that way. I couldn't decide.

The black and white version:

Color. I think it's the lighting. In my opinion, black and whites are better when you play with harsh lighting. This is possibly due to the shadowing effect and how you can almost change an image or evoke a feeling.

The lighting in this photograph is best captured with the use of color. I also love the variety of colors in this place. To not use that would mean that you were neglecting a very important part of your subject.

I apologize for neglecting your work lately. Great photos!

Black and white background with colors only inside the crystal ball. It's magical, right?

I tried that. It didn't look good at all.

I like the black and white version better. It gives it a mysterious feel.

... like an old western saloon, and those are ghosts of cowboys playing pool.

I really like black and white pictures...but in this case I like the color better. I really like Matt's idea...but apparently that didnt work.
