This is an accidental photo. I dug up an old photo, played layers on PS, and then I thought what it would look like as B&W. Without flatten the layers, I went straight to B&W layer, it came out like this. It still kept some colour but lost most of the blue. I don't know why, you might be able to tell meSmile.. I gave up the idea of B&W, it seemed that he was more standing out with a bit colour. I'll put the coloured version on MOD for you to have a look... Thanks for looking, all comments, criticisms are welcome.
He was building a big wheel in Basel. I quite the smoke...Grin

Nice, I like it, and it is much better than the original.

The modification seems very harsh whilst the original is very soft, although not much work is getting done..

Like the smoke yes it adds to the atmosphere. and the colour works well amongst the mono image. This is a great idea for other images you might have Jasmine- the experiment works for me. but the smoke makes it. Paul

The colour original is heavily under exposed, I assume as you wanted to retain the back light halo. The part desaturated version is much better and stops just short of loosing contrast. He looks to be using a mobile phone. Yes, good candid and an interesting treatment which has made something worth while from the original.

Well spotted and captured, Jasmine.
