Good morning Bill, this is great, superb tones and textures, it works really well in B&W, cracking image.

Great image Bill, like a mosaic! This works well in B&W, but I am wondering what a coloured version would be like.

A very fine well observed composition but I do wonder if it really works better in mono than it does in colour.

Colour version now added, with slight differences due to my having to re-process the original file 'by eye', as it were Smile

like the colour version... a bit of burning in would lift the mono

Oh yes! I like the coloured version, as the colours are not too bright, nice and muted. Thanks for doing that Bill!

Thanks for taking up my suggestion Bill. IMO the addition of colour adds some vibrancy to the image which is an improvement.

On the fence with this one Bill.Unlike me,I can't decide which one I prefer !! Just super tones in the mono,which is the cause of my ''indecision''.Unless it is just an ''old age thing'' !!
Two good ones.

The mono is more graphic which suits the subject and the colour is peely wally anyway so I'm for mono.
As soon a s a blank wall like this appears it's amagnet for illegal flyposters. They used to crack down on them in Glasgow, but I think the flyposters won.

The mono version seems to have more presence, clout even. Mind, I'd love to climb over . . .

Prefer the original, as the colours are subdued and add to the all over impression,
