What a fascinating composition Tony and the detailed processing really works. The hand holding the chalk is a brilliant capture. Excellent.

A recent discovery during an examination of the original, hanging in the National Gallery in Oslo, has proven that an almost invisible inscription, partially hidden under the top layer of paint, shows that Munch himself had written, "Could only be painted by a mad man".
The handwriting has been confirmed as Munchs'.

The close crop, exaggerating the hand and chalks is spot-on, Tony, as well as the light concentrated there.

Excellent processing, almost cartoonish, I in fact thought it was a still from a film, in the style of the cartoon which accompanies the Wovenhand song Dirty Blue, look it up on You Tube for something darkly sinister, not quite your ordinary music video.
Top shot Tony, nice.

Terrific composition and processing.

These day's, art is all around us but, only a small part of it is worthy of being photographed.
This, work in progress shot, is one such part, Tony. Very nicely done.

I completely agree with the above; the hand holding the chalk is a marvellous compositional touch, and the processing is spot on.

Great composition & superb mono image

the composition created by Edvard Munch has at various times been reproduced by countless amateur artists using a wide assortment of artistic media
p.s. and an excellent shot of this street art moment, Tony, the crop and tonal work are just spot on

Gosh Lord Tony - you were up and posting early! I've only just worked my way through the gallery and found a very unusual B/W with your moniker on it!

I really like how you have seen it, processed it and the subject.

Glad to see you are addressing me in the correct manner now Kath ! I am always up around 5-5.30. Too many things to do really. The unofficial reason is that I just don't sleep that well. Hey ho. My servant is preparing lunch, so toodle pip for now.

A very good close up and I did have to turn my head over my right shoulder while examining this. So very good Tony. That chalk can really rub fingers raw.
