woah Tommy. loved this one already in b&w but never thought the colour version would be this beautiful. that 50 mm lens effect works great here, but it's how that rather chaotic India scene falls into neatly devided colour surfaces which I really find remarkable here. There's earthly tones left and right and then RGB nicely in the middle. As if all put into place by an architect. Don't really have a preference between B&w and colour, but the colour version does have the advantage of the boy standing out more because of the red jacket. And in case you played around with the colours, I don't want to know lol

Thanks floreus and Koen. How the red jacket stands out from the green wall is what I like about this cheating with colours lol

a great vibrant photo Tommy, I like it almost completely, but for the out of focus area left front which is a bit distracting for me and was less so in the B&W perhaps?

Thanks guys.

Bert, thanks for mentioning. A bit of a tighter crop could trim off part of it, or I could burn it a bit perhaps. Dammit now my eye goes straight to the left when I look at it Sad

Thanks for the mod, interesting dramatic approach Smile

I don't mean to contradict Bert but for me, the out of focus part adds to image by increasing the 3D feeling and the feeling that I'm standing right there in the alley

Thanks Bill and thanks floreus...I think you're right regarding increased 3d feeling. Would love to hear what others think too regarding the oof area...(a bit late to ask i know)

Excellent. I think the DOF's just right and the oof area mentioned adds to the image. Very good.

this is great in colour Tommy

i am in the like the DOF although if you want real pickiness? it seems to stop very suddenly on the left side there, it's nicely out of focus & then there is a distinct line where the brick is back in focus... oh what do i know!!!!
