Much prefer the colour version, says so much more about the man and where he lives.

The mono works better as a portrait, the slight green cast in the colour version detracts from the image.

Contrary to my usual B/W preferences, I'm with Tom. The colour softens the image and adds a compassion to this man's face, i felt an empathy. This appears a harsher image - hey it's all in the eye of the beholder, we see different things. Great B/W.

I much prefer this, the colour processing didn't work for me in the previous upload. This disposes of the offending yellow bag very neatly!
He's a fabulous subject, wryly interested in what you are doing, not at all fazed by the camera.

Two images, both very good for different reasons. The colour version is more realistic, it shows
the subject as he is and as his life is. The black and white/monochrome version is an artistic interpretation.
A very good and very effective portrait, makes him look a bit more suspicious and sinister.

I think that had the colour version been a square crop, without the distracting right hand side, then that would have been my choice. However, the use of mono has changed the image to such a degree that that rhs is no longer such a distraction.
So, this version, plus a cropped colour one, please.Smile

Missed the colour version originally which I prefer.
The mono makes him look sinister.

Both excellent but I do prefer this one. His expression stands out for me more here too. I can't imagine what he's thinking. And I want to know....

Thanks Leo and Sandy...Probably he was trying to give a pose, so that he would look better than he was...

I think the mono shows off the man much better Somnath, I want to look at him not the surrounding colour in this instance. Not to say I didn't like the colour version, this one is so much more intense and contained for me.
