I put this on in colour a couple of days ago. I couldn't decide which I preferred. Probably mono but wasn't sure. I had it with more contrast but kind of liked it less for some reason. Anyway, enough blabbing here it is.

If I don't mention awards on here please don't be offended. I like to personally message those people and thank them. I know I maybe should do both. But I do very much appreciate every award and every comment. Very, very much. You're all a really great bunch!

Works well with the low contrast Sandy,
but I still favour the colour after a quick look back !!

Can't remember the colour version but this one fills the bill as an attractive picture, Sandy.

It works well in mono, Sandy, but for me, the colour version wins the day. Carol

As a stand-alone mono this works , but for comparison, I would pick the colour Grin

I wasn't gonna say I prefer the colour but actually I like 'em both in different ways.

This has a wonderful graphite feel to it. Very nice Smile

This has a pencil sketch look and as such works very well but after a quick look back I don't think you can beat the colour.Smile
