Now that really is hard to choose between the two Tommy, love this one for the gritty feel, excellent toning and contrasts.

Even better in b&w. It's like a timeless print....(no, not quite...the plastic bottle gives it away and for the keen eye, the Rangers' scarf I suppose !) Very good.

really like this. I prefer this version to the coloured one as I think that it has more impact (although saying that I think the colour one is great as well!)

I would even put this on my wall, which is a hard level to pass! lol

Absolute blinder, Tommy. Prefer the mono version by far. Would love to know how you are getting that effect. Is it just a lot of dodging/burning/selective sharpening?

What a truly superb candid, richly deserves the EC Tommy. Its full of interest both in the old man and the detail in the stonework. You will have a job on your hands topping this one!!
