He used to be Bruce Forsyth, you know...

By TrevBatWCC    
Well, I thought the chap on the right looked like Bruce Forsyth, anyway! Another from the 1940s weekend in Haworth, and a bit of digital jiggery-pokery. As the subjects 'are from the 1940s' but in a 2012 setting, combined the two periods by converting the subjects to mono, and retaining colour in the background. V2 is the original as shot.
Hope you're all having a great Jubilee celebrations weekend, despite the weather! Grin

He certainly looks like good old Brucie, and the other guy reminds me of James Robertson Justice! Well spotted and captured. Carol

The selective mono conversion works for me, Trev: very well done. From their expressions, I wonder what they were discussing.

V1 for me Trev, excellent point of focus with background defocused just enough so you can still tell there's celebrations going on.

It is indeed Brucie, Trev. Not always a fan of selective colour, but it does seem to work here. V1 being preferred by me.

I was going for Ian Botham as well... and the other guy has touches of John Sergeant. v1 is very effective but they're both very reminiscent of the age.

Great shot Trev, but I am going for V2 this time

A great shot and I love V1. Good game, good game TongueGrin. He does have a wee bit of a Brucie look. Moira

the man on the right does look like Brucie but he is a little broader in the face - great shot and mono suits this well

Very Yorkshire, to theses eyes. But I suppose, pick a county, so this is very period. Rather nicely done.
Great capture Trev - well done !

super fine set Trev, really like V2

Clever stuff Trev, such an interesting idea to invert the usual colour popping. I like V2 though.
