Posts Tagged ‘Monochrome Madness’

I live in the state of Wisconsin in the U.S. The capitol building of the state, in Madison,Wisconsin, is one of the most beautiful in the country. It features the only granite dome in the U.S. – a dome that soars to a height of over 200 feet (just slight lower than the dome of the U.S. Capitol). At the top of the dome is the mural “Resources of Wisconsin” a work by Edwin Blashfield that spans over 27 feet. He completed the work in 1917 and the work is the splash of color in the Monochrome Madness photo of the dome interior shown below.

Not too long ago I published a color version of a photo closely related to the photo below.

Both photos are of Hiddenwood Lake, which is part of a an easement refuge – Hiddenwood National Wildlife Refuge – in North Dakota.

I have been pondering whether this photo would work better in color or in black & white. Here is the black & white photo, which (for several reasons) is the one I prefer:

For comparison purposes, he is the color photo of the same subject that I posted recently.
