After and Before

For Black & White Sunday, Paula asked us to show an image converted to monochrome, and the original image. I’m just a few days late, but here goes, for a moment in time (shown previously in one of my Warsaw posts):

…and here is the original in colour. the colour distracted from the shadow and patterns, I felt.

  1. I like it in B&W. The red backpack is distracting in the colour shot. The other one draws me in to the pattern in the paving, and the shadows.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. In B&W I can focus better on the pattern in the pavement and shadows that are more functional in the image. Excellent choice of the photo for edit. Thank you, Sue.

  4. You get so much in each image, it always amazes me how different the feel is for each.

  5. I agree! 🙂 I was going to have a go at this one but as usual I’m out of time.

  6. All that texture cries out for monochrome!

  7. Yes, it definitely works better in B&W. Nice shot, Sue. 🙂

  8. Love the coloured version, but prefer the B&W one!

  9. oh yes, the black and white does it for me! Fantastic light, shadow and patterns!

  10. The BW does emphasize the patterns. Those shadows are striking and wonderful

  11. What a choice, if I have to choose. Two totally different sets of pleasures.

  12. I really liked the monochrome version, make it look very classy:)
