Friends. Photography. Adventure.


For this weekend’s low lighting/shadow prompt I’ve been playing with the Tunisian lamp that sits in my office. I can’t decide whether I prefer the colour or black and white. What do you think?

This isn’t the only photo taken in my office this weeks. Check out Honey’s Mistress of Light and Shadow.

Sinful Sunday


  1. HappyComeLucky

    I love this! It makes me want to look further and reach out.

  2. The moonraker

    Both are great images. I prefer the colour one! Brilliant use of light and shadows…

  3. Collaredmichael

    Colour one for me. The black and white doesn’t have enough contrast. But I do love the coloured version.

  4. Marie Rebelle

    I couldn’t choose between the two. Gorgeous images!

  5. Focused and Filthy

    Oh I love the colour one …. great use of the lamp.

  6. Molly

    It is a tough pick but I think I like the colour image more, there is a depth to it that is a bit lost in the black and white

    That is cool!

  8. Muse

    It’s very clever, I prefer the colour but both both are brilliant!

  9. missy

    Both of these are really lovely images but I think that I prefer the top colour one as the light is so vibrant 🙂

  10. Julie

    I think the colour one, though they are both great. The light and shadows on this are fabulous.

  11. May More

    Oh such an interesting shot x

  12. PurpleSole

    I prefer the coloured photo, but both are excellent 😊

  13. DeviantSuccubus

    This looks really cool! And I think I prefer the colour one, because there is more warmth to it.

    The one with colour because I finally figured out what the image was. haha. The black and white one has more mystery.

  16. LittleSwitchBitch

    I love the black and white – I am however, distracted… All I am thinking is – man, that must be some office lol x

    I think I like the color image best. However, if you manipulated the black and white image to make more of the midtones ‘pop’ a bit, it would be an equally strong composition.

    I really like the B&W, there’s so much strength to it.

    SO hard to choose which I prefer as each has different qualities but I think I’d go with the colour one for the sensual contrast of your soft skin against the harder edged geometrics and tones of the lamp – stunning shots both however and a great composition!

    This is beautiful!
