mono streetshot just of the mile in Edinburgh does it work better without border and text

A great candid shot and I like the strong tonal processing in mono. Very punchy.
I guess the frames and titles thing is a personal thing and one way of presenting an image both digitally or mounted as a finished print. For me I'm not a fan.
Certainly a printed image, mounted on card and presented in a card mount for framing is perfectly acceptable and care has always to be taken to ensure the mount and colour of the mount are suitable and complimentary to the image. I would not bother with the text unless perhaps I wanted to re-create that Athena Poster style from the 80's.
For a digital presentation your V2 is how I would prefer to see images presented. Set against a plain background with the photo edged if required with a white or black stroke line.
Have to agree with Paul, the presentation in V1 is very reminiscent of the 80's, the text is not really needed,
giving a picture a title is fine but better to let the viewer decide what it means to them.
In the mono versions the starkness gives the impression of solitude but in the colour version
he could be writing a love letter or a shopping list.
I think the presentation of V2 is the better of the three but it depends on the intended use.
It is a very striking image, the mono conversion makes it stand out.
many thanks for crits and comment
Three works best, the colour of the bench and the character stand out better against the stone work. But you know that.
Keep pressing on your work is very good.
I've said, several times, that your framing and text approach is not a good idea here. It may well work on an exhibition wall on a big pribt, but not digitally.
Having said that, I like the mono here, but the figure needs to be on the right third. The comosition is too central.
I can understand the reasoning behind your crop, using the vertical column on the right, but I don't think it works. Effectively the space on the right of the man is wasted because it is behind his back, away from the direction that he is leaning into, against the natural flow of the eye's exploration of the frame. I'll try a crop of my own, but using similarly hard, gritty b&w which works well. I like this a lot.
thanks for mod
