Boxing in color

By Drummerdelight
When asked to make a third documentary, I decided to choose for photographing in the black & white "Arcus" mode wich I don't regret. This made my workflow a lot easyer. (and I prefer B&W)
However, there's always a chance that someone wanted a color version so I had my back-up camera set up in color for half the time.
I tried my best to get a certain atmosphere when adjusting the lighting, the crop and the tones in LR.
I can imagine that some of you might even prefer a B&W version of this series.

Thank you for looking,
PS - Hakim, Belgium's ex-champion won the title, my respect & congrats to him

for me, black and white captures the atmosphere so well it would be my preference, another superb set of images though Guy.

The main upload is a fantastic three-way balance. As Mike says, b&w captures the intensity better than colour for me though.

A completely different feel to the colour. We can see the sweat much better and I like the red and blue against the dark background; the colours have not been overdone. The b/w versions look as if they could come from any era and are therefore more ambiguous.
