Avalon from Above

I took a short photo safari yesterday into Avalon with Nora and Caitlin, and I took this on the road down into town. I actually like this photo more as a black and white because the most interesting part, to me, is the pattern of boats on their moorings. The high contrast makes the boats the focal point, whereas it feels too busy to me as a color version. However, I’ve had two people say they like the color version better. Check it out here and see which one you like better. Perhaps start the first oD debate.

excellent composition. i love how the boats contrast against the water.

my immediate reaction was that i really liked the contrast of the black and white photo, but the color shot is very nice with the bursts of vibrant color from the boats. upon further examination, i also like how your eyes are immediately drawn to the boats, then to how beautiful the landscape is, and then you notice these darling red flowers in the bottom left corner of the color photo -great detail that you don’t get from the black and white.

I’ve been to Catalina once. It was marvelous. (Airline lost my luggage, but it was still a GREAT place) I’m jealous you get to live there.
I like the composition, but the image seems a smidge dark overall. I like the capturing of the crescent shape of the shore and the boats. This image gives a very good sense of what this area looks like. Nicely done.
