The colour original of this was reasonably popular last week but a request for a b&w version was received. Since I have nothing new to offer I am happy to comply. Of course, I had to artify it just a little more
'Artifying' is a nice coinage to use for this mono version which is excellent and very effective, Bill. I like it a lot.
Excellent conversion Bill - I like the strong contrasts in b/w and the super grainy feel to it - none to myself "artify" probably applies to some of my images too
Your "artifying" has really turned it into a very different image and after switching between the two several times the jury is still out on which I prefer.
Good rich tones Bill , they both work well for me, each has it's own appeal, I do like the strong contrast well presented.
The high contrast has added a touch of Bill to this image from Newcastle. It might have been from an Aboriginal wall painting, and it certainly has an original look to it.
you're not the only one who runs out of images now and then.
Great image prefer the B&W.
Most definitely the colour version for me Bill. The black and white doesn't seem to have the same punch to it although it is a good conversion.
I think that this version works best Bill.
A pirates lair it feels to me Bill. Good job with the artifying.......Sandy
Nicely converted, but colour is the winner, Bill.
I prefer this to the colour version. It has more depth and I like the punchy tonality.
Very contrasty image Bill, suits the subject well.
VERY well worked Bill, bringing out all the necessary elements.
This mono has a much more threatening feel about it.
The artified version for me. It's more removed from its environment, and could be anything anywhere. A little more artifying of the houses at the top would complete the illusion.
Monoization always involves a bit of artifying!
I like the mono here - super conversion Bill.
For many aesthetic reasons the mono works extremely well

A crop to the top?
What a difference mono makes! Those scarabs are now sprawling in the dark and look far more menacing.
Looks good, but I must admit that I prefer colour for this
The b&w version is much darker and grittier and there is a hint of menace tto as Pamela has already suggested
Plague in the 21st century, Bill?
Looks fine no problems with that Mr. Mannaring lol. , regards Leon.
beautiful light and contrast
