Pikeman of the Sealed Knot II

By jasonrwl
Thank you for all your votes and comments on the last image and especially to Alan (AlanBaseley) for his valued UA. You seemed to be in agreement that you preferred the mono.

Another pikeman from the same event today. I prefer the colour version this time hence why it is v1 but interested to see what you think.

Thanks for looking
Jason

I find it really difficult to decide which I prefer, both versions work for me. I'm wondering whether a de-sat or even totally mono BG may be a possibility ?
Great expression and pose !

Thanks Mike - I have de-saturated the b/g but perhaps not enough. I will take another look. Thanks again

I think the colour does work well here with those deep reds making a good background
for the blacks and silvers.

I like both of these shots but I think mono adds more to the period feel, Jason.

Colour for me but I was thinking about a desaturated bg before reading the comments.
