Big Wide Union Station

Here’s a photograph of Toronto’s Union Station in all its grandness. It’s quite the building. I dialed it up in colour first but when I processed a copy in black & white I was torn as to which I like better. I thought I’d throw them both up and get your opinion. You can comment or simply use the poll and vote. Comments are better, of course. 😉 Hope you like one of them at least. 🙂

    Although I’m normally a big fan of black and white, I am liking the one in colour this time!

    Definitely the colour. Still has an aged look with the colour.

  3. IMHO

    The B&W says old grand building and the color says alive, bright terminal.

    Both are great pictures just tells a different story.

  4. Thanks for your thoughts, Cindy and Charlie. I agree that each photo paints a different picture of the place, so to speak.

    It is amazing how the color give the photo a different taste. I love the color one; but that doesn’t mean the black and white is not good. The black and white photo has a history taste, and the color photo shows the beauty of the design and the construction of the building from inside.

    • Thanks Lulu. I also find that the b & w version has a bit of a line drawing feel to it, because of how I processed it. Like, it could almost be something someone drew on paper rather than photographed.

  6. The black and white is nice, but details would be lost if it’s not in color. The flags on the wall, the gold tones, the depth and texture of the ceiling, etc… Wonderful shot!!

    I’m with Charlie…each shot tells its own story. The b/w shot is all about the architectire and the figure at the front, while the color shot is all about the lighting and the flags. I couldn’t pick a favorite as they both work.

    Both are great images but for me it is the B&W image. To me it presents the idea of grand old building better than the colour, but both are beautiful
