Aquidneck Chatter (Who's Got It?) {Sepia}

By LexEquine
This is my optimized sepia version, of the color that I posted 12 days ago. Again, this is a candid shot this past summer on "The Aquidneck" Schooner, before their departure on the usual trip around & about Newport Harbor.

I tend to favor the sepia version, & this is usual for me in a photojournalism image. Which one do you like more? Any and all comments are always welcome.

Ciao~ Peter Smile

Definitely this one Peter. A very nice conversion, and much easier to look at.

Hi Peter,
I like both versions very much, but I am known for the fact to favourise colour photography in general and also in this case. I think the colourversion holds more "life" in it.

I go for the colour version on this as the image is actually very 'busy' and the colour separates the elements in it. Did you consider a closer crop of the arguing group of four plus the one on the bench? Now I like that crop in sepia. Just my idle musings on a Monday morning, Peter.

'I have No Idea,...Michaela???' GrinTongueWink

I really did not 'notice her,' myself. She must have "passed out on Booze."~~~

If You look carefully, especially on the color Image,...You can see 'All that Hard Liquor' (bottles) in the background in a cabinet,... or whatever.~ GrinSadTongueWink

Thanks, to all my commentators, on all the positive feedback on this Image (color & sepia).

Regards~ Peter Wink
