B&W please.

What would be the benefit to convert to B+W? Where do you see the gain, Slobodan? I can try it out.

Color in this case introduces unnecessary distractions. B&W would allow you to darken and reduce contrast for everything but the girls (ŗ la Eugene Smith). The same thing done with color just looks weird.

I will dig out the BW version. I remember I struggled with the red coke pub. Converting with red or orange filter made the pub to pale and overruled the girls. I give it another shot tonight and post the result.

I understand, this is probably an example of an image that needs context to survive.
It is shot on a black market. A very cumbersome social place where cheap and second hand is for sale. Live music is played in one hall and the fun is killed be the habituation of the regular customers.
These girls are there because mom is probably having fun shopping, ....

This is the kind of thing Slobodan was suggesting, Ivo. It gets rid of the color distractions and draws the viewer's eye to the faces. It's a long way from great street, but it's not awfully bad either.

Well, that's what Gene Smith would do, Slobodan, but the balance looks pretty good without it. Once the color's gone your eye jumps to the faces. And yes, Gene's post-processing almost always produced incredible art.

Well, I played with Farmer reducer in my analogue time. As well as I used pyro to develop.

Yes so did I Russ. And by coincidence I did so after being inspired by Eugen Smith and trying to emulate his work methods.

We should ask the LuLa regular who goes by the handle "Farmer:" Did he invent Farmer's Reducer?   ;D

Actually, I tried Farmer's reducer a couple of times, back in the middle of the previous century, but I never liked it.
