Shadows from the metal fence on what I assume is a banner of some description
It caught my eye as we drove past it, as the sunlight made some wonderful patterns on it as it moved in the breeze. So the dark areas, now I have converted it to mono, are the absence of sunlight. Is that another way of defining a shadow ?????
Yes I know I am 2 hours early for this, but I intend sleeping on in the morning, having been away looking after our grandchildren for a few days SmileSmileSmile
Thanks for looking
Helen

I like that Helen. A very strong abstract and so cleverly distilled from the original.

Congratulations on recognising the potential in the ordinary, the mundane. V1 is a transformation. I don't regard it as a manipulation so much as a liberation. Only quibble - I'd want a square crop. But that's me...

An intriguing subject that makes excellent mono abstract. First-class observation, Helen, and extra points for realising the subject's potential.
I would go along with your definition of shadow; after all, both black and white are technically non-colour, I understand.

Wonderfully spotted image. I like it in mono, but I also think the same crop in the original color would be equally interesting.
