About the Image(s)

Taken last year on my trip to Nepal. I like my colour version but will be interested to hear what the group think about the mono version. Taken at 1/400sec at f4, Iso 400 79 mm .

Monochrome is the best IMHO. I thought the faces are a little light so took the original to Photoshop Elements for another version. It is a very interesting street shot.   Posted: 03/13/2020 19:55:36

I prefer the monochrome here but you have two distinct images here. The knitter and her friend are a separate image as is the lady looking on.

And this one leave you guessing as to what she's looking at.

Both are technically correct and personally, I prefer the individuals over the one that leaves me looking from one end to the other not quite knowing what to focus on.   Posted: 03/15/2020 13:56:48

This street shot tells a wonderful story and is so well done technically. I love everything about it and wouldn't change a thing. Although the woman on the right is far from the other two, there is enough detail between them to keep them from seeming seperated.   Posted: 03/18/2020 17:18:07

I agree with the story-telling impact of the first image - the connect (or disconnect) between the three women captures and holds my interest and, I think, provides a sense of balance to the scene. Separating it into two images, to me, results in two lovely portraits but the story (at least in the image of the woman on the right) is lost. I definitely prefer the monochrome of this to the colour, in which the vibrant hues draw my eyes away from the women's faces and their activities. Lovely shading and facial tones in the BW and strong sharpness and texture throughout.   Posted: 03/20/2020 22:15:03

My choice is the mono but the full shot versus two separate images. I like odd numbers starting at three. I also like some of the results Chuck got popping more detail. Given the subjects I'd think the color version might be a strong "travel" street shot. You find great people subjects.   Posted: 03/21/2020 12:00:15

I like the monochrome the best, for the color you would need to desaturate it some, then it might work. I like all three people in the image, the knitting bag brings it all together. The faces could be a little darker, otherwise, the shot has a lot of interest and detail.   Posted: 03/21/2020 20:55:15
