It’s almost a day and night difference between the two pictures 🙂 The same hills look so menacing in the black and white picture; a bit more mellow in the colored one. Colors are captured beautifully in the second one…the house looks so striking in the lush green dotted with yellow. The tire marks define the pathway leading straight to the cottage….nice perspective
I agree with Thomas. The black and white is very dramatic.
There must be something about Iceland which lends itself to monochrome, and while I believe black and white is too often an excuse to make a poor color picture interesting (not the case here, I hasten to add, as both work) the black and white version just seems so brooding and powerful compared to the color one.
