perfect choice for colour and just a right amount of blur

Certainly has a 70's feel to it. Looks well used.

I'm sure it would have worked in b&w, but as an almost completely different image. The colour does stand out and the blur is spot on.

I don't think b/w would have worked anyway. It's too fussy a location. The colour adds a bit of atmosphere.

The real Belleville and a real bar. I miss them both.
While I'd like to see a b&w I can't fault your reasoning, Bob. I'm imagining (rather, remembering) a sultry August afternoon refreshment stop after pounding round Père-Lachaise looking for Champollion and Marshal Ney . . .

After Bill's comment I decided to stick on a mono version for all to see and give any further views, as desired.

It's a really good mono, Bob, but it takes second place to the opener for absolute atmosphere.
However, b&w somehow draws more attention to the cracked floor and the detritus lining the very bottom of the bar. As I said above, Real Belleville!

Sometimes colour is needed. I like this a lot.

Not being one who favours colour, I have to say that having compared the two images, the mono conversion has lost the atmosphere of the colour version. This is one time when colour does add something worthwhile.
I agree with the majority. The colour works better here.
