An old train was broken down, it produced a lot of steam and smoke. The girl was caught on my camera running away from the steam and smoke. I turned it into B&W to high light the action of the girl. Anything else is needed to be done on this photo,please? Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome.

I like it very much, the lighting is perfect.
I do think it would make a more dramatic image without the other bystanders in the frame. The man with his hands in his pockets takes away from the excitement of the girl running, to me.

A wonderful image, the whole atmosphere is full of magic and wonder. Great light, and so very suited to monochrome.

A nicely timed shot Jasmine. Its good as it is, - might benefit with a little contrast and sharpening as in the mod, but it works.


Regards

Just clone the 2 out, Jas. A well seen and recorded shot. Little to criticise. Bet it looks good in colour too.

Thank you very much,Paul. Advice is taken..I've done a coloured MOD.
Lazy solution, I'm not good at clone....Smile
a)using patch tool to remove the two people.The main man was in orange coloured out fit, so it left some red colour after the patch tool.
b)Sponge tool to get rid of the orange colour.
c) put some soft light layer at the background to increase the contrast.
d)very little screen layer on the girl.
e)smart sharpen on the girl.
Thank you all very much for your ideas and advices.

Looks like the little girl is on fire and is the source of the smoke!
