Very good as usual. Thanks for the info on the direct mobile upload too.

One point I would like to make is that when theres a mono, and the original colour, often as a comparison, the mono has had quite a bit of enhancement, while the colour is left as shot. The mono "pops" and stands out. This will often result in a preference for mono, - and sometimes this may be different if the original had similar attention paid to it. Of course mono purists will always prefer mono, not matter what!

So I took a shot at modifying the colour, trying to emulate as much as I could, the approach taken in the mono. Its still a personal preference of course, but the playing field may be more level!

I see this is the Galaxy S10 Plus, - and it really is taking some terrific images. I sometimes wonder when we will just stop carrying cameras.....WinkWink

Thanks Willie...yes Willie it is Samsung S 10 plus, it has really a good camera...Willie, ok, as you have tried to compare the colour with the black/white in this case, i agree the colour wins over the b/ if you think carefully...colour, as you have modified, has enhanced the beauty of the scene but soul is uneffected...can you see his placement on the society, the advertisement, the light is getting more attention over his loneliness, his helplessness...we often see a scene from the height of 5 feet to 7 feet, when we take images from different height, it becomes more interesting, we see the world in colour but can't see the soul...

Just some views, Willie, nevertheless, you have done a brilliant job...

Another great image full of texture and tone. Whether phone or camera, it's the photographer that makes a good image.

Thanks Fred and Barry...A Big Thank to you Mile for your Valued Award, It is Highly Appreciated...
This images impact emphasises on working alone and I can empathise with this because I was a lone worker
For a number years my office space was the pantry of a Doctors house and people did pop in and out but
In the main I worked alone.
Itís brilliant image and I think both versions work equally as well.
