Here is the alternative B &W version of the original photograph.  See the post – The Cup in Colour – for a comparison and to find out a bit more about the composition process.

  1. I know it’s black and white but it gives you the impression it is silver. That makes it seem rather historically regal or something. I didn’t think I would but I like this one better.

      I tried to emulate the B&W effects that go with the classic silver processing. A very sharp archival quality which creates a strong emotional imapact & associations when combined with an impressionistic pictorialism .

    I agree with the silver bit (silkpurse) but much prefer the coloured version. Love the stitched looking frame though.

      The preference is understandable. Your artistic expression in textiles/fabrics would draw you to the bright/warm colours and soft lines of the first image. 🙂
