One from the Natural History Museum. I waited until a man walked behind this exhibit of a prehistoric skull.
V2 in colour.

Thank you for passing by.

Black and white version for me, Chris, looks more ghoulish Smile Carol

The mono version works best for me. Great observation.

I like to colour tones, although mono makes it more creepy!

Excellent, and this has to be b&w. V2 is more about the tones and textures, V1 is about looking straight into the empty eyes.
But waiting for a living person to add his faint ghost to the image - that's the photographer's eye.

As the old song says, Not lorst but gorn before . . .
Has to be the b&w for me, I find it both subtler and more direct. I might just have added a teeny touch of sepia, but that's just me.
Well thought-out and rather powerful.

The mono version for me, I like the incorporation of the man behind. Good shot.

It's amazing how these survive for so long. Good use of depth of field, Chris, which makes it really stand out from the background. Has to be the mono version for me Wink

A skull and a ghostly figure, you've brought Halloween to us early. Excellent dof and detail here.
