365 – 95 The Lady in Red

Tonight we head back to the streets of Pittsburgh.  This was another shot that I struggled with between color and b&w, but ultimately decided to do a little of both.

I had noticed this woman walking down the street and obviously it was the red coat that caught my eye.  I took a few shots and thought that it would make a good color street shot as the awning above her is a bright yellow. But, once I got it on the computer I felt that the full color version was just a little too busy and detracted from the Lady in Red.

How do you make the decision to go from color to b&w?
