Do you prefer the warm glow of the golden hour or the perfect white pelicans? lt was taken about 45 min before sunset. The golden one is exxagerated as there were thin clouds over the sun.

I always love that warm glow from the golden hour, but it doesn't always work.

 

I think in this example, I like the second image more.

l've decided l like it in between-slightly warm. And B&W works well in this one.

Funnily enough I was reading through the posts and my first reaction was each of the two examples shown were too far either way and it needed something in between.

 

Does look a lot better IMHO.

 

The B&W doesn't really work for me unfortunately. I  think it's the blackness of the cormorants.

Bill, I encounter this problem a lot as I'm always striving to get the early light. Sometimes it just doesn't look right, and I have to try to color correct, sometimes I get what I'm trying to get, sometimes not. I like your last effort.
