WordPress Photo Challenge: Everyday Life (plus, a quiz)

I posted this photo yesterday, but in full color.  My question to you is:  which looks better?  Yesterday in color?  Or today’s in black and white?

Btw, this is the life I’ve come to accept as my everyday life here in Jakarta.  I had no expectations when I moved here, but I’ve found a routine that seems to work well enough and shows me scenes like this on my commute to and from my school.

  1. This one is dramatic as one expects from black and white, but yesterday’s gives me the impression what Jakarta is – colourful!

    • Why’s that, I wonder?

      • Can’t really tell you any logical reason, may be I get distracted by the colours, in black and white the objects seem more sharp to me which affects more my perception.

      • I totally agree. It’s why I like shooting in b&w. Thanks for checking in.

  5. Definitely the one in colour looks better! Shows the colour of Jakarta 🙂

  6. I think the B&W is somehow clearer. The shapes and lighting work for themselves – I found the colour one, though good, distracting.
