The Marriage of Figaro.

By franken
Taken at a recent visit to Cardiff bay. I wasn't going to bother with the scene as I'd captured it many times previously and then the person on the phone walked into it. The water tower was obviously turned on. It was a sunny but cold day and there wasn't many people about.

I've added a mono version.

Excellent composition and timing, Ken. The figure looks a tiny bit clearer against the background in the colour version, ootherwise both work perfectly.

For once I go for the colour. The detail and structure/textures, especially on the water tower, show up better.

a fine conversion to mono in v.1, however the colour original is definitely easier on the eyes..
and a perfectly timed and composed shot too

Very nice street image Ken. Colour seems to work best for me, however, both work.
