Any Which Way But Loose

By Fefe
Something a bit different today from me, I do not do a great deal of candid images . But in this case I wanted to get a view of this main street in Valletta. It was so busy I had no choice but to get all the shoppers and tourist's in shot too. A crop from a larger image (V1 shows the full view and in colour) , but decided to crop and turn to mono.

Massive thank you to all for recent C&C and for the recent UA's from Mike9005, Len1950, Ball82, Granddad, Ericsamson, Estonian, PhilT2, TrevBatWCC and BRITCHIE on my upload from Thurlestone.......Thrilled to bits GrinGrinGrin

It's good to be reminded of our visit there a couple of years ago, Diane, thank you!!SmileSmile
I love the version but, the lead is my favourite - an excellent, well chosen crop.
I love the expressions of the close trio in the centre of the lead image - are they trying to sing in unison??!!TongueTongue

Two lovely images of my capital city Diane, terrific candids incidentally too ..... I tend to prefer the mono.

mono conversion is fine but colour original works best for me.. there's something biblical about the exodus-like march of the crowds

It looks a really lovely place, Diane, especially in colour 🙂 I can't decide which I prefer - colour shows us the location better, but do love the crop in the lead, which I think works better on street candids, and particularly in mono 👍 Worthy of 2 votes, but will have to be half a vote for each.... 😉

It's the colour original for me, more context and interesting architecture.

Colour for me as it makes the scene pop so much more . Great street shot !

Both excellent Diane, though I lean more to the coloured version, one can feel the warmth of the sun showing through. I guess the young teenager in the foreground, is still upset her parents did not take her to Disney World as she wantedSmile
