London snapshots: Brick Lane

By mrswoolybill
At the time I intended mono for this one, but a tighter crop was needed, the figure on the left in the original composition didn't work in b&w.
Thanks for looking,

I have to agree with you - the 3rf figure would definitely be a distraction

Obviously, I know nothing of the guy in the centre, but he fits the bill when placed beside the piece of art work. Great crop Moira and so relevant!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

The crop has worked perfectly for this b&w shot, the original colour image was stronger because of the red an blue & 3x3 link. This one has a tension which was not present in the original. Just shows how and why cropping is such an important tool . Great stuff Moira. ⭐🏆

Thanks Alfie. And yes, I like the added tension here.

They look even shiftier in B&W than they did in colour.

The faces above look to be wondering what strange world they are looking upon. But then; aren't we all.

Had to check back through your portfolio to see the colour version. I think the tighter crop and the mono treatment work better for me. Also thereís a hint of menace in this composition that I really like.

Prefer this tighter crop, Moira, and works better in mono I think 😃👍

Three against three, or three against two...hard to decide without seeing the original converted to b&w, too...
