Young Artists

By Rach1970
Well it seems I started a bit of a debate with yesterday's upload - should graffitti be represented in b&w?? I personally thought yesterday's mono version made for a good image, even though I preferred the colour (all legal by the way - carried out by local youth groups).
So, as promised, here is the image again - this time in full colour, with increased brightness and contrast for added umph! Hope you like it.
Thanks for taking a look. All comments and criticism welcomed as always.

There was nothing wrong with your mono conversion , I do think this subject looks better in colour IMHO

I just prefer to see colour in my images Rachel.I just like to see how I see !!! It is a colourful world out there.It could be because I remember the black and white tellys. They were murder to watch !!!

Thanks to everyone for clicks and comments. As I go to press both the b&w version and colour version are neck and neck with 19 votes. So I guess it's just a matter of personal choice. Thanks again to everyone for your time in looking and commenting.

Black and white graffiti can be quite a lonely pursuit Rachel! and here

I like both versions (in danger of getting drawn on if I sit on the fence too long I guess!
