For me this works best in mono, so I am leading with it. The key players in our building project are posing for the camera before the cutting of the ribbon.
I have produced a number of photos for printing, framing and hanging in the Nursery. I met with the Head Teacher today to look through them. Both of us prefer mono in the main. The reason they work better than colour for me is that I have taken them over quite a long period of time, and the light/weather conditions were so varied for each of them. Mono seems to hold them together as a group so much better than I ever imagined.
v2 is obviously colour and v3 was just for fun
Thanks for looking
Helen

That's the beauty of b&w. You look at the things that matter.
Well done to all concerned, not least you.

Mono for me as well; colour version has too many colour distractions - red trousers, red balloon, blue and white notice, all disappear in the b/w version. Agree with your (and others) choice.

Strangely, I looked at the mono then the colour and thought a bit of colour popping would make a very good compromise. Lo & behold v3... my winner.

Very good point about mono vs colour regarding changes in lighting conditions! I prefer the mono in this case - very well done conversion Smile I do really like V3 too, though Smile I probably prefer V3...lol
