I really like this Moira! Wonderful symmetry and lots to look at! Well spotted!

I'd love to see this in B&W as well!


Cheers

This is one where I hadn't considered b&w. Looking at it I suspect that too much of the court yard is in shadow but I'll check it out later. Busy day today, spring-cleaning at our Riverside Centre. I shall take the camera, we could only find pink Marigolds in Bill's size... Wink

I don't know why but when I first looked at this and the two figures, changing of the guard came to mind, a well spotted photo opportunity again Moira. - gary

Hi Moira. I just had a play quick play around with your image in Photoshop. I converted it to B&W and adjusted the shadows....it came up pretty good! If you PM me your e-mail address, I'll e-mail it to you! Smile

I'm sure I could get even more out of it, with a bit more time! Smile


Cheers

I like it both ways.

As I said, I could get more out of the B&W version, with some more time spent on it. Smile

What do you think?

I do like the mono mod, too. In the color the attention is more on the courtyard, the mono focuses the eye on the lettering.

Both versions work well although I'm favouring the mono slightly as the colour doesn't add to the scene which is more about the interplay of the two figures and the tension between them, emphasised by their placement on separate doors.

You're on form today folks, thanks for some great comments. And thanks to Trev and Dave for spotting the figures, they're the important bit for me.
And thanks to Ken for his UA.
I feel I am having an Oscars moment, I shall thank my mother next...

Smile Bwahahaha - as my granddaughter would type out. Amazingly, when I saw the WB, my first though was Wooly Bill - Is it possible some brainwashing has been going on Tongue
