I liked this a lot when you uploaded it into the main gallery, I went back to your pf and that one has disappeared but I can see some of the changes that you have made. You have obviously gone back to the colour version and cropped it differently, with less height, and used the same crop for the b&w which now has the extra space below the foreground figure's feet that I asked for then.

Square, or at least very nearly square, does work here. It creates an enclosed feeling. I'd like those extra few pixels at the top for perfect square.

You've brightened the b&w this time, I'm not sure that it needs it. I'd like a little more distinction between the bright street scene viewed ahead and the dingy passage where we are. The picture seems to me to be about that contrast, emerging from the shadows into the light.

The timing for the foreground figure is good, the sense of movement in that raised foot and slant of the body. He's flexing his fingers, there's a tension. Not quite a stalker, but something slightly worrying.

Oh and I should have said, b&w all the way. Colour just seems to be about the name Garfunkel's, which really doesn't interest me.

Not for me. The colour version is very strange and your technique has resulted in an image looking like a very over done HDR. Something I don't like at the best of times.

The mono is better but the heavy tones and considerable patchiness of the processing carry over and do no good at all.

Sorry, not this time. The basic image is good, the processing, for me, is not.

The colour version has a distinct disadvantage over the mono right from the start for me ian.

Its too light, loses atmosphere that the mono picks up easily, and that border is not suitable, - plain white if at all.

So to give the colour a leg-up, Ive loaded mod1, which has a lot of blue reduced, and then just experimented with an oil paint filter on the other mods.



regards
