Black & White Sunday: After and Before Y1 04

I love monochrome, so this challenge from Paula suits me nicely. I’ve gone with a Film Noir attempt here:

Mean Streets, or ‘The Getaway Car’

And this is the colour version, nothing like so moody:

Just another view of downtown Havana….

Well, it’s all a bit of fun, and you can see more examples at Paula’s here.

  1. Good example, Sue. Much better in B&W!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Oh, I do like the monochrome image much better than the colour version. Looks gritty and the car looks better with the added shine. That chap looks as though he has clocked you and is going for his gun 😉

  3. Ditto the moodiness. 🙂

  4. I like the impression the b & w gives off.

  5. Simply tremendous in the monochrome version.

  6. Both are equally as gorgeous.

  7. So much more atmospheric in mono – great image, Sue.

  8. Your attempt is completley successful, Sue, even for someone who generally prefers color.

  9. B&W implies a story in a way colour doesn’t quite.

  10. I like the B&W better until I know it is Havana – then it has to be in color.

  11. A very successful attempt!

  13. When I think of Cuba (the country I never visited) I “see” it in colour, but I do love and even prefer your monochrome edit here. Sorry I could not log on yesterday. Thanks, hon.

  14. I love the grittiness of the B&W version, Sue.

  15. A shame to waste good colour on all that decrepitude, Sue 🙂 🙂

  16. Very nice and a very good conversion!
