Sunset in the village

By Marioks
This photo was taken in the long neck village in Thailand. The sunset, the view was amazing, so tried to capture a small glimpse of local life.

Well presented in black and white.
I can't explain the top left dark corner....

Why black and white?

I'm sure you're right which makes me wonder why you converted it.

The colour original must be quite spectacular.

Yes it looks I've overdone the left dark corner. I also uploadaed a colour original for comparison.

The flare is better handled in the mono, but I would prefer the colour version, but without the flare. A change of angle or a few minutes later. The flare does spoil a rather nice image a bit.

Had a look at your color version and thanks but no thanks B&W every time, not sure about the top left hand corner: Yes it is overly dark but it kind of keeps your eye within the photo.
Great photo.

Mike that was my idea: darken top left corner in order to see whats in the picture. Maybe if I left it a little bit brighter then it would be better.

I go with the B&W for there are less distracting elements such as the golden-hued track.. B&W renders it uniformity and image can be then easily taken as a whole.. and the social context can be more easily grasped..
well presented and excellently captures the village life..

The colour version, as I suspected, has much more going for it.
The flare does spoil it a little, though I could live with it.
The shadows require a little work as I'm sure that there's some more detail to be found in them; all of which is lost in the B/W version.
The strange darkness at the top left isn't really necessary in either version.

For me, a bright sunny day needs colour.
Thankyou for uploading the original, I like it a lot.
I was disappointed with the top left brightness, especially the flare, but some photographers do use this to good effect, and perhaps it's just my feeling that such things should be avoided that is preventing me from appreciating it.
The more I look at the original, the less I find the bright sun and flare interfering with my enjoyment of the scene.
