    Default The Cabin Is Falling Down

    I first photograhed this old Montana cabin (built about 1900) five years ago. Since then, the roof has fallen in. B & W and color renditions of the same shot. E-5 & 12-60mm lens, ISO 200, F 9, 1/250", handheld.

    I like the composition on this shot Ken !

    Glad you went back...

    Both versions work well for me but I think the color is more of an environmental image while the B&W crosses the line into Art !

    Either way, I bet that cabin has some stories to tell

    Cheers, Don

    The black and white is my choice, as well.
    For some reason, I find the cabin gets a little lost in all the colour.
    The B&W gives it more nostalgic and emotional impact.

    Thanks for looking and for the words. I don't photograph lots of buildings but, like many others who do, find that B & W works for the old ones.

    I also like the black and white version of the picture, is preserved the historical significance of this house.

    Where is this cabin, by the way? Unlike the others, the b&w is sort of blah to my eyes; the color is the standout work. But then, I tend to heavily favor color over b&w for most shots. In my neck of the Montana woods, we have some great old barns that are long past their prime. Here's one, built in 1909, I think.Click image for larger version.

    It's close to the center of Montana, near Roy. The one you show is great ...as is the background.
