Thank you, Bill. I wanted the focus to be on the young man and his expression, for me, the colors detracted from that.

I think you did a good job by converting it to black and white. I can imagin the colorful scene it would be.. Nice hair style? Smile What he is doing alone there by the way?

This shot is just crazy and i love it,to have captured the look on that young mans face,and with the motion blur of the background,shooting in black and white just adds drama to the whole image,a pleasure to view.

Andy..

We just came from a trip to an amusement park. Hundreds of shots all too busy to use. This was a fantastic idea, by taking the color out you have really isolated your subject. Great Job, Wonderful idea.

Don't know why exactly but this shot works for me! Nice image, enhanced by the youth in the ride.

Good shot - I like the huge array of geometric lines and shapes.

Black and white the right choice for your purpose Amy, it has served to concentrate the viewer's eye on the ticket taker.

Thank you so much, all for the kind comments.

Patricia, I'm not sure if I even saved the color version it had so little appeal for me, or I would stick it up on the web and post a link for your comparision....I will look though Smile

Even in B&W this is a very busy picture , lots of intersecting lines and angles , the eye doesn't quite know where to settle!...add 4 or 5 bright primary colors , and it was quite overpowering (at least to my eye).
I tried to motion blur the background and couldn't get it quite right, so in the end decided to leave it alone.

For Amark.....it was only a few minutes after the park opened for the day on the weekend before the big summer tourist season, so there were only a few people around.

Thank you all again for taking the time to visit and comment Smile

Oh, meant to mention that most of the "lines" in the background are part of an old roller coaster that wraps around this park.
