A clover patch, and a fine art clover patch

To me, this seems to work better as a black and white image. The color image gives me the impression that the rabbit has just gone and the photographer has missed him.

I printed this B&W image at 19x13" and compared it to an equal film shot. I think this image just feels better than the film image (digital ink jet print from hi-res scan, both images printed on Epson R2000 printer on Inkpress Fine Art Matte, 220GSM, 12 mil, double sided). The smoothness of the digital version (posted below) wins out. I'm calling the B&W image "fine art".

I guess some images are like that. Some look better than film, some don't. Depends on the subject material, lighting, and who knows what else.

Comments? I'd be glad to hear yours!
