Great image. Can't decide if I like the color or B&W better. Very well done   Posted: 01/11/2020 14:16:10

Great photo!! I had to look twice to see whether the pirate was a real person or not. Love the buskers, can almost hear their music. I like the black and white much better.

This is a great image. I love it. And I like the way you've processed it in black and white. I think the black and white brings out a certain mood in me. Also, excellent work on the sharpness of the image too. Very well done.   Posted: 01/11/2020 15:58:08

Very nice image - I like the composition and clarity. I think the choice to go to monochrome was a good one with a nice range of grays in the image. To pick a nit, I think the image was just a bit too bright, so I tweaked the shadows and highlights just a bit. What do you think?   Posted: 01/24/2020 13:31:05

Thanks Bill. I think it may depend on the brightness of the screen. To me yours looks a little too dark.   Posted: 01/24/2020 22:30:16
