Photo: Liquid Cat

Black and White Sunday

Liquid cat: sun pours in the window as my cat Dawn pours off the bottom lip of the cat tree.

Liquid cat: sun pours in the window as Dawn pours off the bottom lip of the cat hammock on my office desk. The expression on her face and her little crossed paws are sweet and peaceful. I love the lines and angles of the window crosspieces and their shadows, contrasting with the soft roundness of the cat. A picture of serenity and contentment.

Usually I know when a photo will look best in black and white. But this one seems to work just as well in color. So today I am presenting you with both.

Liquid cat: sun pours in the window as my cat Dawn pours off the bottom lip of the cat tree.

In the color version, I notice the salmon glow of the sun illuminating her ear and the tiny rosy splotch on her nose. The whiskers seem to stand out a little more. In the color version, the contrast is more about the warm colors of Dawn against the cool colors of the paint on the window and the green of the grass outside. I feel the heat and comfort more in this one.

What do you think? Which one do you like better and why?

  1. Hmmm, I like both for different reasons. I like the colour for the salmon highlights, but it looks like she is smirking in the b and w.

  2. LOVE the cross paws and she is smiling. There are times a photo is just meant to be colored or black n white … in this case, both are great. Happy Sunday. Golden Woofs

    Love the photo both ways, it’s great in black and white and color. I think the black and white version makes a great portrait for wall hanging, and the color version looks stunning on my computer screen, it would make an excellent background.

    Tough choice – I think I’ll go with the color becaue of those little pink ears…

  5. Definitely a beautiful picture! We like the black and white one a lot! Love Dolly

  6. BOL! That is pawesome! I love both but the color lets us see your kissable pink little nose!

  7. Mary says:

    Oh to relax like that.

  8. Emma says:

    I like the black and white because it is so peaceful and kitty is so peaceful. The aqua window ads buzz to the photo, so that is why I like the b/w version.

    There is no wrong answer because both are purrfect!

    I like the colour one as you can see her little pink ears:-)

  12. Sandy says:

    Both are great, but I have a slight preference for the color because Dawn’s color contrasts so beautifully with the color of your windowsill.

  13. Sun spots are the best!

  14. I think I like the B and W because of the texture contrast.

  15. Mark at DBDT says:

    I like the color one. The color of the window and its contrast with Dawn is really interesting.

  16. We like the color one…we like the pink in the ears. 🙂

    Mom usually likes B&W best and loves this photo, but she thinks the color one in this case is much more interesting. Thanks for sharing both. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    I love both, but give the nod to the black and white one. Something about the lack of color mutes everything perfectly for this peaceful picture.

  19. What sweet picture!! 😀

  20. Such a sweet photo! I can’t decide which one I like best… they are both perfect!
