A Digital shot of my old film *tank*. Which works better the B/W or color? Or is it too dark altogether? Taken with a 5D and 24-70. All natural light through one window.

black and white looks much better. the very small amount of color visible on the color one is just distracting IMO.

Thanks for the input mrs_heathen. I keep waffling back and forth between the two.

Nice camera and nice shots. I prefer the colour version as it is mainly B&W anyway, but almost looks like a selectively coloured photo.

Oh how I miss my old Pentax. Thank you for posting those photos. I kind of like the color one better, simply because of the reflection in the lens. It pops in a way I like.

For some reason the B&W looks a bit sharper to me, but I still like the color better. As someone else mentioned, it "pops".

Both are nice, but +1 for the color shot

I am currently scanning thousands of slides my father took back in the days with his Pentax with the plan of making a Blurb book of his best/favorite work. After seeing this, I think I'll pul his gear out of the closet and make a shot of it to include as well.

Thanks for the inspiration - I think he'll like it.

Definitely the b&w. It's an old camera so I think the b&w really complements that. This makes me want to break out the old Canon A-1 and take pictures of it too.
