And now for something completely different. Taken on the way home this afternoon from the top of the double decker bus I was sat in - I think it came out ok?

The hard bit is trying to decide on the B&W conversion - I did several versions and can't decide which I prefer. I'll pop the original up in case anyone fancies having a bash.

The black and white conversion you have done has created a very strong image, the contrast is excellent and gives the image a great deal of punch of the colour original.

A very strong graphic image, I had a go at bringing out the brickwork more, see my mod. Hope you approve.

Somehow I like the colored version...it has a certain stylish look that is lacking in the mono.

Cracking shot !!!....lovely 'graphic' quality, with a gorgeous shadow !!!!

I think both versions are valid, but looking at the mono one perhaps a 'blue-toned' version might look good ??????????

A rather late thank you everyone - I've been busy blitzing the house and garden all day so only now am I about to grind to a halt for the evening Smile

Thanks for the mod Ian - not unlike one of the B&W variants I'd done - which means I approve Smile

I dare say I'll play with it some more another day - when I've stopped my worrying domestic attack......

No cat food yet Ade - I've not been out today Smile

From the top of a bus? Very well taken.

It's close, but I go for the B&W on balance, as it looks just thar bit sharper and more graphic.
