Some pictures just don't work well in a black & white newspaper

(aka the editor must be aware of this):

This story from the AP ran in the local paper here.

The headline that ran with it : ‘Starving’ Milwaukee finally gets its fill

Is that Prince “Bukkake” Fielder?

Oh, that is so fucking wrong…

:o

I don’t see what difference colour is going to make. The ‘stuff’ still looks like ‘stuff’ in colour.

:slight_smile:

You’re right. Looking at it in color doesn’t help much.

But one of the things about the paper’s photo is the lower contrast; the bottle at the top is harder to make out. And in the color one you can barely make out a bubbly texture and his top teeth - in B&W it all looks much worse.
