About the Image(s)

I took this image from a car on the road to Mandalay with my Lumix LX-7 Point and shoot camera. ISO 200, f 1.4 , 1/60 sec.
I converted it with SEP2 using the High structure harsh pre-set, and making small changes from there.

The B&W really tones down the light, which is good. However, it also takes away some of the details. The higher vantage and the vanishing point aspect works well and provides an interesting view. The tones and contrast are well done. It is a kind of journalist shot but lacks a focal point, not sure what to look at. There is a slight tilt, that for whatever reason I could see at first look, I think it is exaggerated by the vanishing effect.   Posted: 04/06/2021 09:36:59

Large gray tones in the B&W, this is interesting. However we lost all the information available in the color version. we faster see the subjects in the color version. That are too many objects that we need some colors to distinguish them and to understand the picture.
I like the color one, with a decrease of the highlights.
Just my opinion.   Posted: 04/08/2021 09:06:31

This is an image of two senses. With the colour version you get this dazzling imapct of all the lights and the stalls and how it must have felt walking down between them.
Then the monochrome you stop and look at the people that are there and you stop noticing the stalls.
I would have to lean towards the colour if worked on and got better tones and pulled back the glare a touch as the impact just hits you. The monochrome loses it as the people are walking away, if they were walking at you then winner.
Both strong travel pictures and great to view just lock your wallet way.   Posted: 04/13/2021 09:27:30

Larry, I like the B/W. I see the people walking away in both shots. The quality of the B/W tones is very impressive. Which of your two images do you like best? Jerry   Posted: 04/14/2021 08:55:00

I prefer the B&W because I find the color distracting and the B&W allows me to concentrate on the people, the place, the mood. Thanks for asking.   Posted: 04/19/2021 09:40:35
