The Storm



Check out this picture I got of a old house during an incoming lightning storm in North Carolina! My wife and I were driving to New Bern to stay in a Bed and Breakfast and Kara saw this old abandoned house with the storm coming in from behind it. This is one of my favorite pictures I've ever taken. I have shot landscape photography for 15 years as well as weddings. Tell me what you like better, the color or black and white version.

Thanks!

Jason

honestly, I like both version.
I believe when the foundation is great, then it doesn't matter if it's a color, b&w, sepia or whatever. You captured an art Jason. This picture reminds me of a song from casting crowns, (praise you in a storm.
Great Job.

I can't pick! They are both awesome! This should be a cover of a Nickolas Sparks book!

WOW- how cool is that? Beautiful, both of them- I love the richness of the color one, but then the tonal range of the b&w one is amazing. I guess you would only have to really choose if you were hanging it somewhere, as you should and then let where you are hanging it determine which one you print...you better hang that one somewhere!!

I can't choose a favorite, because they're both fantastic. I love how you caught the lighting in the far off background. I love how angry the sky looks. Thunderstorms are awesome.

This is incredible. I have the hardest time all the time choosing. But these are so great! What was the light on the porch, it made it perfect. It added the gold. Amazing.

First of all..thanks for the comments you left on my blog. I'm having fun reading all your entries.

Now, on to the picture..I have to say I like the color one. Not 'better' then the b/w one, but wow..it's great color for what looks like an awesome storm. :D

Wow! What an amazing shot. They are both really cool, I can't pick a fav. You better print that huge for your wall. :)

These are both amazing! What an awesome capture!

Awesome shot! I'm actually going to go with the B&W version. I love the tonality across the whole shot and the shape of the clouds! Did you catch any other strikes while you were out there?
