Hi David.
I was looking at your colour version last night and was hoping you were going to upload a B&W Version.
Looks as if my prayers have been answered. Smile

Praise indeed from the master, and I have to agree that the colour to some extent takes away from the figure.
Great monochrome conversion and wonderful tones in the shadows.

Superb conversion, hard and glossy blacks for that fabulous polished floor. In colour I found the floor competing for attention with the priest, here he is isolated in a spotlight. This is as good as b&w gets.
