If you didn't care for the Spanish cannons, you might prefer this Spanish dagger we can across one afternoon recently. The minute we saw it, we thought, "Black and white, Mike."



Spanish Dagger. Nikon D300 with Lensbaby Twist 60 (90mm equivalent) at f2.5, 1/2000 second and ISO 200. Both images processed in Adobe Camera Raw but the color version is based on the monochrome edit.

The reason? The tonality. The sun was coming from behind the yucca and we loved how it made the daggers transparent, casting their shadows on each other.

It was pretty in color but it would be dramatic in black-and-white.

But you be the judge. And, yes, it's OK if they tie for first (or last for that matter).
