I am not sure which I prefer. Colour or Mono? I am a mono lover in many cases. Did put just a dab of colour back into the face and candles. Same picture as a few days ago. Taken in Carmel, California. The Carmel Mission dating back to the 1700's.

fine, solemn image.. and drives the idea home very clearly: everyone is loved and equal in God's heart. a commendable job and a very meaningful and perhaps all important image..

Looks good in mono too Sandy, but comparing the two together, think the colour verson just wins it for me Smile

I think this looks just as good b/w, it glows. I liked the gold of the original as well though.

It's not like me, but I find that I prefer this mono version, it makes it feel more "private", more contemplative, and looks more atmospheric altogether.

A truly powerful and emotional image made all the more effective by a wonderful mono conversion. Superb Sandy.
